bjarke ingels group (BIG) has revealed plans for a residential complex to be built in the swedish capital of stockholm. the project has been developed in collaboration with developers oscar properties, and will contain 140 apartment units, each offering sweeping views across the neighboring countryside. titled 79&park’, the scheme has been designed to harmonize with stockholm’s most prominent green space — the royal national city park — opening up onto the city’s gärdet and djurgården districts.

the boundary between the gärdet park and the new building is both blurred and defined by foliage-covered rooftop terraces, which emerge from the building’s cubic form. BIG has arranged the units around a central void, which provides each residence with necessary amounts of daylight and ventilation. in order to energize the site throughout the day, the ground floor houses commercial spaces open to the public, activating the edge of the plot.

‘the southwest point of the building extends farthest into gardet; and, to create a humane edge between building and nature, is pushed down to the lowest profile, transforming it into a public platform with a 270 degree view of parkscape and simultaneously freeing the majority of the residential units to views of the park,’ explains BIG. ‘the same move also ensures that the central courtyard will always receive copious amounts of sunlight.’ the project is expected to complete in 2018.
