Vårvetet – residential area between city and nature

We found the site situated between two major green areas on the border of two municipalities, and saw the possibility to develop a housing project that could serve as a link between the two segregated suburban residential areas.

The new houses are situated in Hagsätra a municipality of Stockholm where the existing building stock consist mainly of multi-family houses, which contrast with the villa building stock of the adjacent municipality of Huddinge.

The challenge was to develop the area in harmony with the surrounding area with special consideration paid to flora, fauna and residents access to leisure activities in nature. We found a builder who would carry out the project with the same regard to nature as we wanted.

The simplicity of the buildings – with slight variations on a standardised plan – is complemented by curving streets and a variety of foliage. All houses are 137 m2 consisting of four rooms plus kitchen and bathrooms. Entrance halls face a front courtyard situated on the street front whilst private back gardens adjoin the wooded green area to the rear.

The houses consist of offsite fabricated wood volumes utilising the efficiencies of environmental benefits of such techniques. Along the long side the houses are cladded in glulam panels of a colour matching the roof finish, which gives the impression that the roof flows down the façade on that side of the house. Façades facing the back garden and the street are of vertical wood panelling in natural grey shades that harmonise with the wooden houses in the neighbourhood. On the entry level, the kitchen and living room form an open space between the garden and the street sides of the house.
