3XN: vallingby parkstad, stockholm

vallingby parkstad in stockholm, sweden by 3XN

danish firm 3XN have won the competition for vallingby parkstad – a residential development in stockholm, sweden.

the building’s curved design embraces the area and the lively shaped balconies opens up the structure towards the surroundings thus raising the park up in the air. the dense city structure at the base adds activity at eye level and life thrives on active roof tops and flowering balconies.

the area’s traditional abc-structures are functional and angular marking a clear contrast to the green park. as an attempt to break this pattern, the new building is raised softly from the ground as a human movement. the north facing façade is smooth and plain, however towards the south and the west the structure is curved. the design contributes to minimizing the building’s shadows. the tower’s wave-like form shifts between floors varying in shape.
