Harbour Stones – Master plan for a new housing district in Gothenburg’s old industrial port

The Lindholm area, dominated by former industrial buildings and shipyards, has been transformed in a typical manner into large-scale business districts and open plazas – here you will find company headquarters, a science park, a college etc. The master plan proposal introduces a humane scale and a different architecture focusing on the small-scale urban spaces within the scheme by refining the positioning, geometry and transparency of the buildings.

The scheme consists of 10 sculptural building volumes, varying in height from four to ten storeys, with about 400 apartments and a total area of over 70.000 m2. The scheme also includes a tower of approximately 22 storeys which will rise as a landmark.

The buildings are designed to maximise the potential for sunlight and views over the harbour, and their facades of re-cycled aluminium make a strong statement with reference to the ship-building history of the site.

Towards the exterior, along Lindholms Alléen and Götaverksgatan, the major urban traits are continued, but the new area opens up inside by means of two public stairs acting as thoroughfares and a third landscaped stair to the waterfront. This creates a micro-climate with sunny, sheltered spaces directly overlooking the harbour, and also opens views out for every resident.
