79&Park is a 25,000 m2 residential ‘hillside’ located at the edge of Stockholm’s treasured national park Gärdet. The building is conceived as an inhabitable landscape of cascading residences that combine the splendors of a suburban home with the qualities of urban living: the homes have private outdoor gardens and penthouse views of the city and Gärdet.
A central urban oasis offers peace and tranquility while also giving the residents a feeling of belonging in the larger community of 79&Park. Seen from a distance, 79&Park appears like a manmade hillside in the center of Stockholm.
Comprised of 3.6 m x 3.6 m modules, the building creates 169 unique contemporary homes with generous views and outdoor spaces, while remaining respectful to the national park, neighboring buildings and nearby royal harbor Frihamnen.
The building’s tallest corner is lifted up to 35 m in order to maximize the inflow of natural daylight as well as views towards Gärdet and the Frihamnen port for most of its units. The modules cascade down to the building’s lowest profile at just 7 m, gradually extending the wooden development into the park. 79&Park appears like a gentle hillside, seamlessly blending into the nature around it.
The organic expression and cedar-cladding continues into the green courtyard, where residents and visitors are met by different sized plateaus that create small activity pockets and spaces for amenities: a shared outdoor area with lush bushes, flowers and trees, a dog daycare, a preschool and ample racks for bicycle parking.
Nearly all of the units have unique layouts, appealing to the diverse group of residents across different age groups. The interior spaces are inspired by Scandinavian design and touches from South American modernism that feature tactile natural materials, including white oak floors and unique wooden details. Ceramic granite is used in the bathrooms while the kitchens boast natural stone. Large windows invite greenery from the terraces and views from the national park into the residences, creating a smooth transition between inside and outside.
All dwellings in the building have access to private and shared roof terraces. The terraced landscape features a rich variety of plants – hardy perennials, trees and bushes are sprinkled across the rooftops, appearing green and leafy throughout the different seasons in the Scandinavian climate.
The ground floor of 79&Park houses commercial spaces open to the public, activating the edge of the plot. In the floors above, residents enjoy views to the expansive, peaceful landscape of Gärdet’s wild grasslands and heaths.
