danish c. f. møller architects have won the competition for a new terminal for stockholm’s ferry connections to finland and the baltics. the terminal will be a landmark for the new urban development norra djurgårdsstaden.

the terminal of 16,500 m2 and customs area of 1,100 m2 is part of the area värtahamnen. the terminal, which will have a facade covered with expanded mesh, recalls the shape of a moving vessel and the architecture – with large cranes and warehouses – that previously characterized the ports.

the terminal has an ambitious sustainable plan, that will be evident in the entire development. the main idea has been to create natural links between central stockholm and the new urban area in connection with the terminal, so that city life will naturally flow into the area. therefore the terminal is raised to be at level with the urban zone, so it is easy for both pedestrians and traffic to access. at the same time the roof of the terminal building is designed as a varied green landscape with stairs, ramps, niches, and cosy corners, inviting both stockholmers and passengers for a stroll, while enjoying the view of the ferries, the archipelago, and the city skyline.

the aim is that the ferry terminal will be predominantly self-sufficient in energy and thus stand as an environmental model for public construction. therefore the architecture of the terminal will integrate i.e. solar and wind power, for example the terraced landscape on the roof will integrate beds of solar cells along with the planting. the plan is to communicate the sustainable efforts to the people in the building by using i.e. centrally placed television screens, helping to raise awareness of the potential of sustainable construction.
