Stockholm is growing and to accommodate population growth the city needs to build more houses. One of the most sustainable way of doing this is to densify the existing neighborhoods and take advantage of existing infrastructure.
Anders Berensson Architects was commissioned by “Stockholm Centre Party” to design a new city area in central Stockholm and to make a dense and green city on top of the train track area next to Stockholm Central Station. The train track area in the West part of Stockholm City is one of Stockholm's most central locations with a high attraction value. Given the cost of covering the existing train tracks and the area's central location, the new proposal aims to build a tight and high city area in order to make room for as many people as possible in central Stockholm.
In order to build denser the firm has designed a new type of city block for Stockholm. The proposed city blocks exist out of thin towers which can be varied in height to accommodate more people but also adapt to light conditions and views. The proposal is apartment buildings scaled down to its smallest component, one stairwell surrounded by apartments to get the smallest footprint possible. With these smaller volumes, the design can be more flexible and adapt to parameters such as views, sight lines and light conditions and still get more living space. The new city structure adjust in highs towards the surrounding city. It is highest towards the city center where there are mostly office buildings and gets lower towards residential areas further away from the city center.
