FOJAB works as a structural architect for the urban development area Lövholmen in the Liljeholmen district of Stockholm. In a project group with the City of Stockholm and in close collaboration with developers, property owners and various consulting groups, FOJAB is working to develop an urban structure for the culturally valuable industrial area.

With its older industrial environments, Lövholmen is a place with high cultural values that tells the story of the development of the industrial city of Stockholm. The plan proposal aims to highlight the groups of culturally interesting buildings that are preserved and create a framework around them in the form of new city blocks.

The added blocks together with the preserved buildings and the new public spaces form a whole that gives Lövholmen a strong identity of its own. The area will also interact with surrounding neighborhoods in scale and character and become a well-composed element in the city's new silhouette.

Lövholmen is currently largely closed to the public and an overall goal is to make this central place in Stockholm accessible. The design of places and paths therefore has as high a priority in the plan proposal as the buildings. A path runs through the district with a string of attractive small and large urban spaces. A large waterfront area is created with afternoon and evening sunshine, with a bathing jetty and space for various events. A quayside promenade runs along Liljeholmsviken, making it possible to walk along the Mälar shore all the way from Danvik to Vårby.

Our work with Lövholmen began in the fall of 2021 when a structure plan proposal was developed. In 2022, the structure plan was reworked in an iterative process that has included developers, property owners and various consulting groups. In the spring of 2023, the work on the plan proposal was deepened and documentation for consultation was produced.
