Oscar Properties has unveiled a collaborative project with BIG that will bring 140 new apartments to Stockholm's Gärdesfältet area. The project, 79 & Park will be comprised of a mountainous stack of prefabricated wood-clad units that are designed to "harmonize" with the neighboring Royal National City Park. Lush terraces, connecting to units that range from one to six bedrooms, aim to soften the "boundary" between park and building.
The plan calls for four rectangular sections stacked around a central courtyard and grounded by commercial space. Similar to BIG's 8 House, the terraces cascade down, making room for rooftop foliage and private balconies.
