Serneke and Andreas Martin-Löf Arkitekter win land allocation in Älvsjö for young architects
Serneke, together with Andreas Martin-Löf Arkitekter, has won the land allocation competition for young architects organized by the City of Stockholm for an area in the Solberga district of Älvsjö.
The winning proposal consists of four buildings with up to seven floors with a total area of approximately 10,000 square meters of light gross floor area. Solberga is a residential area primarily built during the 1950s. The contest entry takes into consideration the surrounding buildings as well as the hilly terrain while at the same time demonstrating architectural creativity, which has been a focus of the competition.
“We are very pleased with the collaboration with Andreas Martin-Löf and with the winning proposal. Together we are convinced that our proposal will create the best conditions for housing with architectural quality that further enhances the attractiveness of the area while being as good as possible from a production perspective,” says Patrik Lindström, CEO of Serneke Project Development.
“When densifying today, it is common to add some buildings that look almost the same as the existing ones, but because we do not use the same construction methods today, they only become worse copies of buildings from previous decades. Our starting point was instead to design residential buildings with their own architectural DNA, thereby contributing to the proud tradition of residential architecture found in the southern suburbs,” says Andreas Martin-Löf about the contest entry.
“As Stockholm grows, it is important that we have high goals for architectural quality. We have been working actively to strengthen the role of architecture in planning and governance documents. This proposal is an excellent example of how we can densify with new production while providing for new architectural ideas,” says City Planning Commissioner Jan Valeskog (S).
Andreas Martin-Löf and Serneke have collaborated previously. Among other things, his architectural firm has been hired to design housing on the 15 top floors of Karlatornet in Gothenburg, which will be the tallest building in the Nordic region.
After the summer, a detailed planning process for the area will begin. Construction is scheduled to commence in 2020.
