Sustainable town houses – Norra Djurgaardsstaden, Stockholm

Stockholm Town Houses, Sweden

Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm is known worldwide as an exemplary example of how a former industrial port area can be transformed into a sustainable urban development. Now Stockholm is planning yet another high-profile environmental area on the harbourfront called Norra Djurgaardsstaden. Here, C. F. Møller Architects has won the competition for a town house development.

The town houses, 18 in total, will be neighbouring a former gasworks, which will house the district’s cultural centre, as well as Husarviken, which flows into the archipelago, and the Stockholm National City Park. The architecture is inspired by the gasworks’ red bricks and simple geometry and by the area’s green qualities.

The residences, five different types all in all, will be built as staggered modules, a solution creating unique homes with rich daylighting and splendid views of the waterside. The design also gives room to private outdoor spaces and terraces.

The project makes it possible to live a modern life based on sustainable solutions.

The aim of the Norra Djurgaardsstaden housing district is to adapt to global climate changes, so that in 2030 the district will no longer make use of fossil fuels – and thereby not contribute to the emission of CO2. The energy consumption of the living units will not exceed 55 kWh/m²/year, including a maximum of 15 kWh/ m²/year used for electricity.

The energy consumption will be minimized by means of the massing of the buildings, for example, the town houses are staggered in order to maximize daylight and have dense constructions. Also contributing are solutions such as intelligent lighting, solar panels for heating, and heat recovery.

Characteristic for the town houses will also be green roofs with e.g. wild honeysuckle and herbs, which – along with a landscaped pond in the common yard – will collect rainwater, convert CO2, and provide a fertile ground for biodiversity.

The sustainable approach is continuous throughout the building life cycle – from construction phase to operational phase and a possible later decomposition phase, i.e. Cradle to Cradle Design.
