Reinterprets the traditional villa

Aggerudsvirkarna comprises four apartment blocks, totaling 49 terraced houses along with associated beachfront plots on Möckeln Lake. The architecture offers a contemporary reinterpretation of the city's traditional residential neighborhoods, featuring green wood panels and sloping metal roofs. A cohesive design language and color scheme unite the residential blocks, while each block boasts its own housing types, sizes, and characteristics. Deliberate offsets and indented terraces lend the townhouses a dynamic structure, creating niches where residents can enjoy optimal light and picturesque views from every home.

The location is both attractive and unique, within walking distance to the city center, kindergarten, grocery store, and hospital, while also offering proximity to water and green spaces. Situated by the idyllic Möckeln lake with its private jetties, the homes provide ample space for an active and recreational lifestyle.

Preserving public access to the beach area while developing appealing homes near the lake was a key aspect of the project. To achieve this, a new pedestrian bridge has been constructed along the promenade, ensuring continued value for the beach area in terms of recreation, not only for local residents but also for the entire city's population and visitors alike.
