FOJAB and Liljewalls to design New Hovås!
After a first round, Familjebostäder selected five architectural offices to develop proposals in parallel, and it is now clear that FOJAB arkitekter and Liljewall will jointly design the 250 rental apartments at Uggleberget in Nya Hovås, Gothenburg.
The reason for choosing to proceed with two architectural firms is that they want to create great variety in terms of height, facade materials, roof angles and other expressions.
- Nya Hovås is an area where we want to stand out with both architecture and innovative thinking about smart solutions. Our portfolio in the area should be experienced as a whole, but we still think that the buildings can have different expressions, and the two proposals complement each other well," says Micael Jansson, head of new construction at Familjebostäder.
The first groundbreaking is expected in summer 2016 and we look forward to starting this exciting project, together with Liljewall and Familjebostäder!
About New Hovås:
Over the next few years, a new district will emerge just fifteen minutes from Gothenburg city center. The vision for New Hovås is a small-scale, world-class mixed-use city that combines the city's range of housing, services, schools, shops and offices with parks and green areas within walking distance of the sea. When completed, New Hovås will include around 1,300 homes, retail and office space of about 30,000 square meters, creating more than 900 jobs.
