Steninge slottsby is a new residential area under development which will result in 750 new dwellings. The area is divided into small blocks with a variety of housing types. The site has a high historical value; the new area will collect the best from the traditional village and the British Garden City, but at the same time create something new based on peoples lives and needs today.
London townhouses were our clear reference, we started the project with a study trip to London to gather inspiration from the architectural sources. Our ambition was to create good homes with high detailing and a strong connection to the greenery outside. Social contact is important in Garden Cities; in front of the entrances are inviting outside spaces where spontaneous meetings can occur.
Our contribution will unfortunately not be built since the project was sold and executed in another manner. However, the ideas live on and can work as inspiration for other projects in the future.
