C.F. Møller Architects wins tender competition in Huddinge
The area for Hälsovägen is centrally located, bordering on central Flemingsberg. Flemingsberg is considered to be one of the most important development areas in the country, with strong growth and excellent development opportunities. Flemingsberg’s growth continues, with the tender competition for land allocation for Hälsovägen beginning in the spring of 2020, and in February 2021, Huddinge municipality announced C.F. Møller Architects and SHH's submission as the winning proposal.
C.F. Møller Architects has designed a vibrant and accessible residential area for approximately 300 new homes and commercial premises at street level. The proposal has a focus on innovation, variety and sustainability, which is in line with the municipality's vision for Flemingsberg's growth.
“We are very pleased that we have won the assignment and look forward to participating in and implementing a project that addresses the need for innovative forms of housing and sustainable construction. Some of the unique aspects of the proposal are that the buildings will be in timber frame construction, include co-living housing and are designed as enhanced pieces of urban architecture with integrated landscape design, both of which add value. Our team includes architects and landscape architects from C.F. Møller Architects, and we look forward to working together with SHH, Colive and Huddinge municipality,” says Ola Jonsson, architect and Associate Partner at C.F. Møller Architects.
Integration between building and landscape
The winning proposal is based on houses built in timber frames with facades of timber and sheet metal. Walking along Hälsovägen, you are met by a stone plinth made of granite from the site with large glass sections that help to create the feeling of a vibrant city street. C.F. Møller Architects' landscape department has designed the shared courtyard on the existing, steep and rocky terrain; thus the winning proposal is an excellent expression of C.F. Møller Architects' design expertise and integrates both building and landscape.
“We have noticed great interest in C.F. Møller Architects' holistic approach that leads to the emergence of a fantastic consensus in our projects. The proposal is a very fine example of this holistic approach and means that we have succeeded in meeting the challenges of the project, densified and utilised existing natural features of the site and created a solution that benefits the cityscape, architecture and outdoor environment,” says Jelmar Brouwer, head of the landscape department at C.F. Møller Architects Sweden.
C.F. Møller Architects and SHH have chosen to collaborate with Colive, a company that offers a social and flexible housing concept through co-living.
