Gottorp is located in Malmö's Bunkeflostrand district and is the last link in a long path that runs through Malmö, connecting the city through both buildings and nature. The detailed plan for Gottorp includes green residential blocks, a park with great natural values and a new district center.

The area around Gottorps gård is located on the border between urban area and farmland. FOJAB has been involved in urban development right from the time the goals were set for the development and design of the area, via the planning program to the completed detailed plans.

The idea for urban development in the area is that it should be safe and enable simple everyday life with proximity to everyday services, public transport and recreation. The buildings should be mixed, with both apartment buildings and single-family houses, and offer a wide variety for many different target groups. The area will be rich in variety and contrasts with places that encourage play and movement. The fine location next to Ekostråket is utilized and the entire Gottorp area is characterized by a sustainability approach.

A new center is built around a district square, which becomes a natural meeting place not only for the residents of the area but for the whole of Bunkeflostrand. A work of art that encourages play and interaction is proposed for the square, preferably with water in some form. Many of the ideas for the site's content and design come from a dialog with residents in Bunkeflostrand.

The blocks around the center are built in brick and with gable roofs and have a clear small town character. In turn, the blocks further out from the center draw inspiration from the garden city with clear entrances and greenery, preferably with hedges on the plot boundaries for a leafy impression.

A fine-meshed street network with good connections to the greenery in and around the area holds the buildings together and connects them to their surroundings. The streets help to populate and activate the area.

To the south of the residential quarters, a park will be built adjacent to Ekostråket, the green area that extends from Pildammsparken in the center to Bunkeflo beach meadows at Öresund. In Gottorp, Ekostråket itself forms an approximately 14 hectare nature and recreation area, where open grasslands alternate with wooded forest environments.
