Belatchew Arkitekter, together with real estate company Sveafastigheter Bostad, have won a competition to build a new landmark in Hagsätra Centrum, Stockholm, with co-living, co-working, a bicycle workshop and Sweden’s smallest cinema. The winning proposal is named “Hagsätra Hub” – where education, sport and community form Hagsätra’s new landmark, focusing on social sustainability.

A solid analysis is the basis of the proposal, with interviews with residents and other stakeholders resulting in an analysis to ensure increased security, reduced housing segregation and a lively cultural scene. Therefore a multifunctional meeting place is part of Hagsätra Hub, a place for education, entrepreneurship and art. It also includes a gym, a living room for different audiences during day and evening and what will be Sweden’s smallest cinema.

The project consists of mixed housing types, ranging from youth housing, public housing and communal flats to standard apartments. In addition to addressing Hagsätra’s specific needs, high demands were placed on architectural quality. Belatchew Arkitekter wanted to give Hagsätra a new modern silhouette, where the upper part of the house gives the impression of a building floating in the air.

Sustainability permeates the entire project and building has low energy consumption, solar cells and digitized features that offer tenants climate-friendly options such as car pools, bicycles and delivery boxes for goods, which means that car parking is not required.
