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.
