The Swedish company’s new project will have a structure that does not resemble the IKEA stores we have seen before. This store will be located at the Westbahnhof station in Vienna.
IKEA’s new project will make you forget the general appearance of all IKEA stores. The company’s new store will have seven floors and will not host any parking lots. The most prominent feature of the new store is that it will be a completely green focused building.
