"These homes are unprecedented in all of Skåne"

An extraordinary terraced house. FOJAB won the contract to design seven exclusive homes for CA Fastigheter next to a newly constructed canal in Lomma.
- We have made a modern and optimized interpretation of the old large villa, says Mikael Pettersson, responsible architect at FOJAB.

Sales have started for Trident Row - six townhouses and one detached house being built on the edge of Lomma harbor. It is a place rich in contrasts between buildings and nature, land and water, new and old. The houses have been designed to maximize the qualities of the site, firmly rooted in Lomma's history.

- FOJAB's proposals in the parallel assignments really floored us! The project is extremely well designed and well thought out based on the site's conditions. I dare say that these seven homes are unprecedented in all of Skåne," says Remus Cismas, regional manager for CA Fastigheter in Skåne.

The perception of space has guided the design. The dwellings are not perceived as terraced houses, but as independent houses with light from all directions, long lines of sight to the surroundings and free passage from the street to the garden and down to the private boat dock by the canal that connects to the Höje river.

- "We have worked on the placement of the volumes and facade openings so that you can move in and around the house and get the feeling of spaciousness and privacy of a villa. And the best possible light conditions from morning to evening, both indoors and outdoors," says architect Mikael Pettersson.

The choice of materials and detailing draws inspiration from the older history of the site and Lomma as a brick-making town, rather than from the newer buildings in the nearby harbor. The beautifully crafted brick facades in various shades of yellow relate to the street houses in the center. The mullioned windows are reminiscent of old factory buildings.

- Trident Row is exclusive in scale and volume management, but at the same time low-key and genuine with a connection to the old. It will be a worthy representative of the municipality," says Mikael Pettersson.

Construction is expected to start towards the end of the year, and it is expected to take around 18 months to complete the villas and the associated canal.
