Invited competition, urban planning, Stora Sköndal, Stockholm, Sweden
Development of the area Stora Sköndal, Stockholm, Sweden. As a first step the area has been studied in preparation for a future transformation into a new city district. The street structure has been made more urban and a number of urban planning principles have been developed.
There is a strong potential for developing Stora Sköndal into a more densely built and vibrant city district with its proper identity. In order to obtain this a mixed community where families, young adults as well as seniors feel at home is important. In order to give life to a city district there needs to be ongoing activities and people in movement during the day as well as the night. This can be obtained through a mix of housing and business in the different blocks. Elements of art and sports create identity and a sense of belonging all the while reinforcing social bonds.
