Competition for Stockholm's new landmark
Berg | C.F. Møller Architects is shortlisted for a competition to design a significant residential high-rise building that is to become the new landmark of Stockholm city.
HSB Stockholm - Sweden's largest building society - is 100 years old in 2023. At that time an ultra-modern residential high-rise building will be completed in Stockholm city. Three architectural teams are now preparing the competitive proposals for the spectacular house that will be placed at one of three different sites in Stockholm. Berg | C.F. Møller Architects is working together with architects DinellJohansson and the urban planning consultancy Tyréns. The other two competing teams are Equator Stockholm with Mojang (Minecraft) and Utopia Architects with Rosenberg Architects. The competition is designed to create public debate on the future of housing, and part of the jury consists of Facebook users. HSB, who also designed the skyscraper Turning Torso in Malmö, has ambitions to build a house that gets as much attention as the skyscraper in Malmö. - We believe that the competition between these architectural teams will generate new innovative ideas for future housing. We want the building to stand out and to provide new perspectives on the concept of living, says Hakan Falk, CEO of HSB Bostad.
