Client Sveafastigheter Bostad
We have developed a residential block in central Nacka. Social sustainability, greenery and living qualities have been our focus in the design work. There is a common terrace on the roof for all the residents of the block. The rest of the roof surfaces are covered with solar cells. All the four stairwells have daylight and direct connection to the street, the courtyard and two underground parking floors. In the courtyard there are trees, shared planting lots and a patio. The courtyard is accessible from the street through a large opening in the house volume.
The apartments are light, compact and well planned. All the openings towards the street consists of full height, glassed balcony doors. All apartments have balconies, french balconies or a small private patio.
Continuous balconies sweeps around the volumes, with an outer layer of wires and metal mesh. This works both as light-permeable balcony railing and trellises for climbing plants and other greenery. The extent of the mesh alternates along the facades and creates opportunities for the residents to take on the balconies in their own way. By the eaves towards the street there are plant beds, allowing vegetation to climb down along the facade. The shallow and transparent balconies interact with the street, and the layer of mesh and greenery adds life and depth to the facades.
Status Under construction
Movehome Lab is a project initiated by Movehome to develop future housing typologies for prefab housing. Our design has been presented as the first house LAB #01. During 2017 the design of Dorte Mandrup Architects will be LAB #02.
The main idea with the house is to provide for the inhabitor to find their own way of living. We call this ”everyday-rituals”. Thought-through storage solutions and large open spaces that can be easily subdivided into smaller zones makes the house adaptable to the needs of differing users, differing needs over the course of the day or week.
