New Residential Design in Stockholm | BIG
Bjarke Ingels Group collaborated with Oscar Properties for a new residential project in Stockholm’s Gärdet district, adding 140 apartments to the Swedish capital. 79 & Parl, as the development is called, consists of stacked prefabricated housing units, with green terraces, covered in foliage and placed around a central courtyard.
The main materials of the housing units are stepped glass and cedar wood. The modular units are placed to form a construction with a rectangular plan and an inner courtyard. Each part of the building has a downward slope, both to connect with the surrounding buildings and also to get the best the views of the park and city.
