A network of varied parks, green spaces and walkways runs through the district. The programme includes targets for sanitization, use of brownfield land, provision of public transport options to discourage car use, energy consumption, recycling of water and waste. Sewage is processed to become fuel for cooking, buses and autos in the car pool. The building forms and architectural style are to reflect hierarchy of open spaces, for example taller, more prominent buildings along waterfront and esplanade 4. Three new bus routes and one night bus also serve the area.
Standards for different types of streets are also set out, including esplanade, tram stop and local streets and cycle lanes. A number of different methods have been used in order to reach residents and businesses, including exhibitions, a website and a newsletter. The idea was to exploit the unique opportunity to expand the inner city with water as a central focus for the development, whilst at the same time transforming an old port and industrial area into a modern city district. Impetus was gained for development and infrastructure in the area when plans for Stockholm’s bid for the Olympic Games were being prepared. The scale of development varies from four to five storeys along Sickla canal and six to eight storeys along the main corridors. The network of green spaces and parks is planned properly, providing a range of environmental and health benefits and making the area extremely attractive to residents.
The aspiration of the team was to create a new ‘inner city’ district with high density development creating an urban district rather than a suburban having as a focus point an extremely high level of accessibility by public transport as well as accessibility for prams and wheelchairs which is excellent.
Hammarby recognises that environmental performance is not just about design; the development also needs to influence how people use places. The concept for a new district in this location was born in the early s. At that time, the City of Stockholm had developed a plan for development on the north side of the harbour, and this stimulated interest for a more strategic plan for the whole area around Hammarby Lake, both on the north and south banks.
Then, a consortium of developers and architects are invited to take forward the development of each plot or individual building, in order to ensure sjowtad diversity, within the proposed code. The spine of the new district is a Masterplan by Stockholm City Planning Bureau. Twenty minutes by bus, tram or free ferry from the center of Stockholm lies Hammarby Sjostad, an eco-community of 10, homes.
Hammarby Sjöstad – Stockholm, Sweden: Public- private areas building types
The development tries to links the city of Stockholm with the suburb using same hammarbg dimensions, block lengths, building heights, density and mix of uses delivering a quality neighbourhood as inn the inner city. Hammarby Sjostad makes the most of its waterfront setting and location. Similarities should include preserving the natural environment where possible and using it as inspiration rather than flattening for development, as well as light, views, access to green space, flat roofs, clean lines, light colours.
stidy The most striking feature of the area is the similarity between the Masterplan on paper, the aspirations it embodies and the physical environment sthdy it has been developed. Standards for different types of streets are also set out, including esplanade, tram stop and local streets and cycle lanes. The idea was to exploit the unique opportunity to expand the inner city with water as a central focus for the development, whilst at the same time transforming an old port and industrial area into a modern city district.
This traditional city structure has then been combined with a new architectural style that responds to its specific waterside context, promotes the best of contemporary sustainability technology and follows modern architectural principles, maximising light and views of the water and green spaces and using glass as a core material. The sewage sludge by-product fertilizes a forest that is managed to provide wood for heating homes. Other design principles that are important according to cade design code are: The building forms and architectural style are to reflect hierarchy of open spaces, for example taller, more prominent buildings along waterfront and esplanade 4.
At that time, the City of Stockholm had developed a plan for development on the north side of the harbour, and this stimulated interest for a more strategic plan for the whole area around Hammarby Lake, both on the north and south banks. Although the bid was unsuccessful, development was already underway and the momentum for change had been established. The natural landscape has been used in the design of public spaces, especially in the waterfront area. A network of varied parks, green spaces and walkways runs through the district as cabbe as pedestrian walks, quays and linear parks across the waterfront and giving access to the residents towards the boat moorings in the summer.
Architectural trends – this sjosfad articulates how the modern architecture in Hammarby Sjostad should both draw inspiration from and differ from early “modernist” architecture. Approximately half of the total area has been developed to date and it is anticipated that the final scheme will be completed by Community provision in the area includes a sfudy glass church building, two state schools yearsone private school, one pre-school and nursery, one GP practice, a library, a sports centre, a ski-slope, a football pitch and a basketball court.
The project, which was set in the early s, was to expand the inner city towards to the lake having the water as a central focus for the development, while converting an old industrial and harbour area into a modern, sustainable neighbourhood. Scale, order and variation – density guidelines are set out but an emphasis on maintaining quality and variation is also articulated.
Hammarby Sjostad | Creating successful masterplans | CABE
Design process The biggest challenges according to CABE was the decontamination of land, stuey reclamation and relocation of a large number of small low-grade industrial businesses such as car breakers and scrap yards, which is an ongoing and expensive process.
Envac Waste Systems Sweden. The spine of the new district is a The residential districts adjacent to the main spine follow a grid structure with a semi-open block form, which allows for maximum light and views as well as providing open access to the courtyards of residential blocks. The library was the most frequently used service in the area, followed by hairdressers and dry cleaners.
Residents separate their waste with color-coded biodegradable bags that are fed into chutes to a vacuum-sorted underground waste removal system. The area is easily accessible by public transport and the creation of new road and tram infrastructure has been central to the development. The proposed design is urban rather than suburban in order to link the inner city with the suburb and follows standard dimensions, such as the street width 18mblock sizes 70xmham,arby, and land use.
