Södra Hallsta Salem

Rönninge Parkstad

A small-scale town close to nature.

In RÖNNINGE PARKSTAD, sustainability and community are at the center, in a natural neighborhood with urban influences. A clear and easy-to-understand structure is created using a tree-lined walkway that runs through the area. In the periphery of the street there are varied types of buildings adapted to the environment ; urban houses against Salemsvägen and small-scale townhouses towards the nature area. Centrally located in the area, protected from traffic, we have created a small-scale habitation with low-rise apartment buildings that have borrowed their typology from the surrounding villas. Between three and four floors and freely placed, they create dynamic spaces with walking paths, alleys and courtyards.
