Discus Wins DNA Paris Design Awards
The Discus high-rise, Nacka City's new landmark building, has received the DNA Paris Design Award within the “Housing” category. The award will be presented at the DNA Summer Design Conference on June 28th in Paris.
Discus was designed by Belatchew Arkitekter on behalf of Swedish real estate developer Sveafastigheter Utveckling. Discus is a new landmark building in Nacka City – a booming part of the Stockholm metropolitan area in Sweden – which with its characteristic silhouette is designed to become a symbol of a growing metropolitan area. Discus will be placed in the heart of Nacka’s new public transport node, right above the metro station in Nacka City’s new city center.
“We are proud of the international attention Discus has received and we are looking forward to develop this project, together with the municipality of Nacka,” says Rahel Belatchew, Founder, Belatchew Arkitekter.
“It is especially rewarding to have won the DNA Paris Design Awards, since I got my master’s degree in architecture at the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris, a city I hold close to my heart,” Rahel Belatchew concludes.
Previously, Discus was crowned winner at the 2018 edition of the World Architecture News (WAN) Awards, one of the world’s largest architectural competitions. Discus has also been awarded by the Architecture MasterPrize™ (AMP).
