A new structure is towering up on an elevation in central Uppsala. Skandion Clinic is Scandinavia’s first cancer clinic for treatment with proton therapy. A patient hotel with 86 double rooms has been constructed adjacent to the clinic. Seven counties have collaborated with Akademiska Hus to realise this unique collaborative project. LINK won a parallel assignment in 2007 with a proposal where the plot’s buildable area was fully utilized and Uppsala was provided with a new signature building with a secure and high-tech interior. The clinic opened in 2015 and will treat approximately one thousand patients every year.

The able, variable timber-block
Kjellander + Sjöberg’s proposal Rosendal is full of character and unlike anything else.
K + S has focused on surfaces, commercial units, the courtyard and the urban spaces that are used in quotidian yet innovative ways for multi-family housing in the city. The aim is to offer a block with a high sense of community – a welcoming context facilitating for good \”neighbourliness\”- from day one. K + S believes that the demand for unconventional forms of accommodation is great, where one has access to additional activities, contexts and functions beyond the own dwelling. Such as a joinery and workshop in the courtyard, a greenhouse on the roof, a space where you can repair your bike or paint your kitchen table. A space to have a flea market, host a crayfish-party or rabbit jumping contest; all in a green, recreational and generous setting, framed by apple trees and berry bushes.

Uppsala is an expanding university town located north of Stockholm. Studenternas IP, a sports field with long traditions, is situated by the river Fyrisån in the very centre of the town within the park Stadsträdgården. The project is part of a major re-development of the south river area and includes housing, parks, sport facilities and infrastructure.
The location of the site is highly sensitive from a historical point of view, the scale and integrity of the surrounding park and river area must be preserved, also when introducing a large scale development. To the west the main Hospital of the region located, a large scale complex.
