A neighborhood where you meet your neighbor
In 2014 AAB department 50 was starting a big energy renovation. DOMUS architects improved the buildings while Kragh&Berglund worked on the landscape – creating attractive outdoors spaces, where the focus is meetings between people.
The big buildings were providing challenges with scale, light, wind and security. Kragh&Berglund worked a lot with user involvement, our focus was to create spaces where the human scale is represented and to work on exploiting the areas with sun. “Solstriben/The sun ray” an axis going through the area is the space with the most hours of sunshine – this axis is the central place where we create room for activity, meetings and recreation.
Our work has created spaces for play, experiences and community – the areas give opportunities for barbeque, community, play, games, playground, a small hill, sensory gardens and fruit groove for contemplation. The project has created an area where there is a high sense of community, creating a nice, safe space for the residents.
