A new era for Gasverket

In 2019, the Gasverket gasworks area was opened to the outside world after being a closed industrial area for more than 100 years. During the year, a new elementary school, (Bobergsskolan), and a new sports hall, (Hjorthagshallen), also opened, and several of the area’s old buildings welcomed new tenants. Stockholm’s highest climbing wall opened at Klätterverket in the old Mätarhuset and a Systembolaget store opened in Maskinhuset. It was also announced that global engineering group Sandvik and Bergh’s School of Communication are to relocate to the area.

Occupancy of plus-energy buildings

The two plus-energy buildings at Brofästet, with space for 43 dwellings, were completed and occupancy started during the year. Stockholmshem won the plus-energy building competition in 2014, in which one of the requirements was that the buildings should generate more energy than they consume during the course of a year. The two buildings combine architectural solutions with energy saving technologies.

Closure of industrial land provides space for 4,000 homes

The closure of the Loudden oil depot was completed and land remediation and the dismantling of the plant’s storage tanks has begun. The tanks are being cut into pieces and then folded to reduce noise pollution and the release of dust. In time, Loudden will provide Stockholm with 4,000 new homes and promises to be an attractive destination for residents and visitors.

Winner of the 2019 Swedish Landscape Architecture Prize

“We have created climate-adapted and green spaces to increase wellbeing, biodiversity, and to manage stormwater effectively. The space between Jaktgatan and Lövängsgatan is a good example of how we work with multi-functional green structures,” says Gösta Olsson, who has worked as a landscape architect in Stockholm Royal Seaport for many years.
