World’s most sustainable furniture factory proposed for Norway

Bjarke Ingels Group has unveiled the design for The Plus, a furniture factory for Norwegian urban furniture manufacturer Vestre. The project is expected to become the most sustainable of its kind in the world. Designed to be the first industrial building in the Nordic region to achieve BREEAM Outstanding, the 6,500-square-meter production facility will feature 1,200 rooftop solar panels, heat exchangers, smart robots, self-driving trucks and other energy-efficient technologies to ensure a minimum of 50% less greenhouse gas emissions than comparable factories. Set within the heart of a Norwegian forest, the green-roofed furniture factory will also double as a 300-acre public park for hiking and camping.
