Hornsberg 10 renews the cityscape on Västra Kungsholmen.

A new, modern and stately city quarter that opens up and invites. The consultation period for Hornsberg 10 ended on January 25. In Castellum's neighborhood on western Kungsholmen, a major transformation is planned with attractive workplaces, public areas and an open ground floor with space for cafés, restaurants and shops.

- Our ambition is to create a natural destination, a place that attracts visitors. Today, Hornsberg is a rather motley neighborhood that is characterized by extensive alterations, additions and extensions. The ground floor is also completely enclosed. The new building will heal the neighborhood and create a coherent city block with mixed functions and a public ground floor - a new whole," says Jens Larsson, responsible architect at FOJAB.

Attractive workplaces and roof terrace for workouts
According to the proposal, two buildings on the property will be replaced by a new office volume that in scale connects to the other blocks on western Kungsholmen. Here, attractive, modern office environments will coexist with a generous range of services on the ground floor. The public areas will create added value for both the residents of the area and those who work in the property. On the roof terrace, outdoor workplaces with magnificent views are planned.

- In the design, we have taken inspiration from older industrial architecture that existed on the site and we continue to work with the brick tradition that exists in the area, for example in Hornberg's brewery. We also recreate a grand main entrance towards Lindhagensgatan and open up the ground floor with generous glass sections, which makes the neighborhood accessible in a completely new way," says Jens.
