Wins competition for residential development by Möckeln Lake in Karlskoga

In collaboration with Eyra Gruppen and Kungsladan Landskapsarkitektur, we have won the competition to create a new residential development of 33 terraced houses located by Möckeln Lake in the centre of the Swedish town Karlskoga.

With private wooden pier, the houses will inspire an active and recreative form of life, where residents will have the lake in their front garden and the town in the back garden. In scale and form, the houses will reinterpretate the traditional villas in the town – at once adjusting and adding new qualities to it location -especially sustainable perspectives with its wooden structure and its many practical design solutions that will inspire a more sustainable everyday life.

We would like to thank Karlskoga Kommun for giving us the opportunity to contribute to a project so rich in perspectives – socially as well as environmentally. Together with Eyra Gruppen and Kungsladan Landskarpsarkitektur, we are looking forward to realizing the project and fulfilling the fine words in the jury’s report:

The jury’s overall assessment is that Eyra Gruppen AB, together with their team, has created an idea that is far beyond the jury’s expectations and not only meets the requested requirements but also exceeds these by a good margin. Their competition proposal is a very thoroughly prepared and fine proposal that has many qualities in terms of structure, design, and creativity […] Their competition proposal will contribute to a great refinement of the area and become an ornament for Karlskoga.
