The formerly industrial area Bolinder in Järfälla is currently being turned into a new neighborhood. Behind the new building on Godsvägen, a green oasis and flowering garden emerge: Bolinder terass. This new housing area offers a big green courtyard for everyone as well as smaller outdoor areas for the residents on the ground floor.
LIVING AND PLAYING BETWEEN THE FLOWERS
The courtyard becomes a lush and active space in multiple levels that offers several activities. In this way many people can be involved in different activities simultaneously and share an active everyday life in a green and healthy environment. The different recreational zones for socializing have grills, playgrounds, and a big grass area for those who wish to play ball games or relax among the flowers.
On the slope, organic shapes have been used to create a beautiful flower garden where one can enjoy the sun and the view over the old industrial buildings, and between the plants a central staircase leads to the next level while a ramp has been used to create little plateaus for recreation.
