A residential area including parks, cafes, schools etc is positioned to the northeast area of Stockholm. The masterplan is based on the winning proposal that Tovatt Architects and Planners submitted in 2003. We are presently designing three residential blocks for Svenska bostäder.
The U shaped building and ‘park’ blocks are placed between the areas central park and the small dock area at the northern extremity of the development. The buildings have a range of heights from 4 to 8 floor levels with a playful roofscape.
Two buildings within the block will be built as ‘passive house’, eg requiring no heating energy other than passive solar heating, and heat generated from lighting and household electrical equipment. This places a high demand on the buildings insulation efficiency.
