The multi-storey housing complex, designed for Stockholm’s new Hagastaden quarter, is intended to be a landmark in the new quarter, as well as an attractive destination for Stockholm’s residents. Together with four other planned buildings, the multi-storey complex will be part of Norrtull, an attractive new public area of the city.

The multi-storey complex will welcome the city with, for example, a supermarket, café and restaurant, magazine library and large outdoor spaces. The complex will also give the city new visual experiences, including its timber structures, green rooftop terraces and a playground on one of the storeys, as well as a dynamic, varied façade that reflects the various types of flats behind it.

The deceptively simple building volumes house a great variety of homes, in fact radically changing floor plan layout over the different storeys to accommodate family homes, student housing, urban villas, lofts and penthouses and even care homes for senior citizens. In this way, the complex makes up a vertical urban quarter in itself.

The ground floor has a staffed lobby, with easy access to the housing association’s many communal facilities, such as a kindergarten and workshops. The fitness centre and laundry facilities are situated adjacent to each other, so that both can be used at the same time -one of the many initiatives making everyday life easier for residents.
