Sege Park Proposal in Malmo

Design: Kjellander + Sjöberg Architects

Location: Malmö, Sweden

Kjellander + Sjöberg awarded first prize in design innovation competition

Sege Park

The project It Takes a Block has been announced as the winner for the design innovation competition – The Nordic Built City Challenge – for the Swedish site in Sege Park in Malmö. The proposal has been developed by Kjellander + Sjöberg along with the Danish landscape practices Sted and BOGL, Atkins consultancy and students from LTH. It presents affordable housing based on climate-smart and community-based solutions for liveable and sustainable smart cities.

Sege Park

The winning proposal combines a number of strategies in order to support a sustainable lifestyle with a focus on sharing as a way to reduce resource consumption. There are several common facilities within the urban block, such as a canteen and a cultural centre. The roof terraces are equipped with greenhouses and a water centre with a bath and a laundry room. These shared functions and spaces allow for smaller living spaces whilst maintaining or even improving the living quality.

Sege Park

Open and flexible spaces connected to space-efficient functions are a common theme for both the indoor and outdoor design. The residents are encouraged to use the block and living areas as efficiently and innovatively as possible to suit their needs.

The prize was awarded during the Nordic Built Cities Benchmarking Forum in Helsinki.
