Green urban redevelopment in Stockholm
The “Södermalm” district in central Stockholm will get new urban redevelopment. The Architecture Studio “Utopia Arkitekter” proposed a redevelopment plan around Hornsbruksgatan street that includes three residential buildings with large open terraces and gardens and a new metro station.
The plan is intended to create 29 housing units: 12 apartments and 17 houses. Rising two to three stories above the street, the connected roofs of each these buildings will act as an extension to the nearby Högalid Park.
The architects say that the buildings will be functional and will provide a solution to the housing problems in the specific part of Stockholm. What makes this project particularly attractive is that the houses have large open terraces, a concept that offers a more natural life in the urban environment and a novelty in the urban life of Stockholm.
The facades of the apartment buildings are terraced and offset to create dynamic look. The upper floors of the new buildings will be residential, while most of the ground floor will be for commercial use.
The new metro station will be designed by Tham Videgård Arkitekter. The first two floors of the building will be primarily offices, though the design leaves the plans open for other functions such as shops or a health care center.
