FOJAB's seasonal parks lead the way in Landskrona

FOJAB's vision proposal was selected in a parallel assignment in Koppargården, Karlslund in Landskrona. This early vision will now show the way in the continued work with the area where the goal is to achieve a denser, more varied building and new attractive spaces, while preserving a large part of today's apartments and streets.

The city of Landskrona sees great opportunities for the Karlslund district in northern Landskrona and is now, in cooperation with the property owners, taking a comprehensive approach to the development of the area. The goal is to improve the environment in the area and develop an attractive residential area in the growing city. In a parallel assignment for the Koppargården sub-area with Landskronahem as the client, FOJAB has developed an early vision for the area.

- "We are very pleased that Landskronahem chose to proceed on the basis of our ideas about Koppargården's potential. Our proposal is called Årstidsparkerna after the four smaller parks with strong seasonal characters that have been created in the central parts of the proposal," says Karin Fagerberg of FOJAB.

Seasonal parks are a cross between a square and a park. They are intended to complement the area's generous green spaces and sports facilities and help develop the area's identity. The vision includes 1600 homes, including the existing ones, and two new pre-schools. The new housing consists of a mix of apartment buildings in an open block structure and terraced houses. New, diagonal streets lead into the recreational area. A consistent idea is that the area should be easy to navigate and that residents should always be close to a park or other meeting place.

- FOJAB's idea proposal is the one that best matches our ambitions for the area. The proposal will therefore guide the work together with the city, other property owners and tenants on the transformation, says Helena Fremle, CEO of Landskronahem.

The architectural team at FOJAB consists of Karin Fagerberg, Kjell Adamsson, Pia Månsson, Mikael Pettersson and David Kisch.
