Rad Floating Units Solve Student Housing Issues in Denmark

The Copenhagen-based housing startup Urban Rigger designed a series of low-cost modular housing to float in Copenhagen’s urban harbors. At only $600 a month (a real deal in the trendy city), these shared living spaces provide students with a private bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.

Built with the help of Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels, each unit—crafted from modular shipping containers—can house up to 12 students. The spaces also include community gardens, kayak landings, bathing platforms, and outdoor cooking areas—and who wouldn’t want to attend a college rager on a boat?
