The practice of Kjellander + Sjoberg Architects designed the urban development of Annedal which is a new district in Mariehall, a neighborhood on the northern side of Stockholm, Sweden and it offers 1200 new apartments.
The designers won the commission to create the best block structure of three separate apartment buildings for three different developers with a total of 150 apartments and an underground parking garage below the shared garden space.
The project is on a sloped terrain with a waterway toward Sundbyberg to the north and a new park to the south. Although the original plan was to create six tower blocks, the designers joined the buildings to form three parallel six floor buildings and thus reshape the plan to add a distinct direction to the buildings accentuating them, reducing the noise and offering a better view.
The brick facades have three color variations with the brickwork designed to stand out from afar and the details such as the balcony niches differentiate the buildings from one another.
