This report is concerned with the redesign of the mobile application of Huset KBH and takes its starting point in Participatory Design. We examine what the users of Huset KBH seeks in a Huset KBH mobile application. This is done for the purpose of a redesign of the current appli-cation in order to make Huset KBH accommodate the users needs. We examine the users needs through a workshop, which we construct using elements from ‘future workshop’ and ‘talking, doing and making’. The generated empirical knowledge is ana-lyzed on the basis of theories involving ‘usability’ and ‘user interfaces’. This leads us to several problematics which has to be revised on the current application as well as new functions that can be implemented with advantage. Based on the theory of ‘user interfaces’ we explore the possibilities of how to design a user interface for the application. It is our impression that a redesign of the Huset KBH mobile application is legitimate since the participants of the workshop points out problematics about their activities in Huset KBH, which the application is able to abate. In this way a redesign of the Huset KBH mobile applica-tion serves a purpose and shows that there is basis for development due to the fact that it ac-commodates the users need to make Huset KBH easily accessible. We conclude that the appli-cation is capable of assisting Huset KBH in meeting the users needs by incorporating features that helps locating Huset KBH as well as clarifying the events hosted by Huset KBH. The report results in a drafted suggestion of what the application could look like and how it could function as well as a description of usage situations.
