Klagshamn's riding facility nominated for Region Skåne's architecture prize

Region Skåne's architecture prize is awarded to a project that looks at the overall perspective of spatial connections. This can, for example, be about how the qualities of places are utilized and developed in new construction. Klagshamn's riding facility, designed by FOJAB architects, is one of the nominated entries for this year's award.

At the headland of Klagshamn, south of Malmö, there are shallow sandy beaches that are excellent for horseback riding. For a long time Klagshamns Ryttarsällskap was located here in a disused concrete factory. When the city of Malmö planned a new riding facility, it was natural to build on the same site as before, and FOJAB was commissioned to design the new riding facility.

The stables and riding hall have distinctive cohesive roof surfaces and the positioning of the buildings provides views of the Öresund.

Proven building techniques are combined with recycled brick features and innovative material choices.

- Klagshamn's equestrian facility has put the focus on a new generation of equestrian facilities that represent good animal and work environment together with sustainable materials, plenty of daylight and fresh air. We are both proud and happy that the facility is nominated for Region Skåne's architecture award, says Mats Molén, architect at FOJAB.

The winner of the architecture prize will be announced at Kreativa Skåne on November 22. Other nominees are Holma torg, Malmö, by Arkitektlaget Skåne, HamnOasen, Landskrona, by STADSTUDIO and Villa Kristensson, Åhus, by Chahrour Huhtilainen.
