An artist’s impression of the new IKEA store at Vienna’s Westbahnhof station, where construction has just begun 

Set for completion in early 2021, (though there’ll probably be a bunch of screws and a weird plastic thing left over), the store, with its green facade of 160 integrated trees and roof terrace, has no car parking spaces – a nod to Vienna’s first rate public transport system.

IKEA promises 24 hour delivery for any items that can’t be carried out by hand.
