A study and vision for 96 dwellings

Location: Östra Vårberget in the Municipality of Huddinge in Sweden

Client: Skanska Nya Hem

Year: 2008

The project incorporates both a development plan and a study for a housing typology. In the development plan the buildings are divided up into different typologies. Row housing, duplex and detached housing. Building placement on the terrain was crucial. Elevation differences between the entrances and the street vary considerably.

The buildings vary their pose in the landscape, clinging to the mountain with parts of each rising over the land and coming back to meet it where gardens are planted. Through these variations each dwelling gains its own unique qualities.
