Stockholm, Sweden

Text description provided by the architects. Gatun Arkitekter has built 78 youth housing units directly adjoining Högdalens Centrum. The building is made of prefabricated concrete with highly finished detailing. Equally important is the careful design of balconies and access galleries. The two sides of the building differ in character. The access gallery side, opposite the underground railway, is faced with semi-transparent line glass with slits of clear glass.

The façade assumes different expressions at different times of the day. The area inside the glass membrane is composed in a variety of colours, lighting up its surroundings in the evening time.

The courtyard façade is dominated by the coloured, glazed balconies, which put life into the building. The fluted concrete surface presents a play of light and shade. Residents will have a natural meeting point in the courtyard and community building. A green oasis with patios and plantings. Construction work began in the summer of 2006 and tenants moved in a year later.
