02/09/2016 - MENU have collaborated with Copenhagen based, CPH Container, to provide thousands of students with a new way of living, through a brand new project, CPH Village. Starting in Copenhagen, the project aims to build a global network of mobile and sustainable villages - created from upcycled shipping containers (CPH Shelters) - to offer affordable living solutions for young people worldwide. MENU will support the project by providing interior furnishings for the concept, which is due to launch its first village in Spring, 2017.

“The project caught our attention due to its shared values of ‘making design matter’. At MENU, wherever possible, we seek to support local projects and craftsmanship in order to help build local communities. Our aim with CPH Village is to grow the relationship into a long-term collaboration to demonstrate that good design can be accessible and affordable to all.” - Bjarne Hansen, MENU

In Copenhagen, very large and centrally located areas of land - typically abandoned industrial sites – will lay idle and undeveloped for the next 15-20 years, with a potential capacity to support 20.000 affordable homes. As Copenhagen continues to flourish as one of the world’s most desirable cities to live and study, these plots of land will provide the perfect setting, offering the 10,000 students unable to find a place to live, an opportunity to succeed.

Whilst the city awaits a permanent solution, CPH Villages can provide an immediate answer to the problem at hand, creating 2.500 new homes and living spaces by 2020.
