Mobilitetshuset Hyllieäng

Mobilitetshuset Hyllieäng

The Hyllieäng Mobility House, with its façade of used glass panels, leftover plates from heat exchangers and skeletons from the manufacturing industry, pushes the boundaries of reuse. 

Hyllieäng is included as a pilot in the Vinnova project CC Build (Center for Circular Construction) as a reference project to demonstrate the possibilities of reusing and recycling materials.

The facade consists of panels made of recycled glass from the Orkanen building at Lärarhögskolan in Malmö and stainless steel sheets with laser-cut patterns. The plates are scrap waste from the manufacturing industry. The glass and sheets are assembled in the field according to four different compositions. Ivy climbs up the facade from ground plantings.

At street level, the building meets the neighborhood with an arcade of concrete columns. Inside the arcade, a wall curves forward to create small spaces and a more intimate street space. There is a room for businesses and space for micro-mobility solutions with rooms for workshops and bicycle rentals. The building is crowned by a photovoltaic system that generates locally produced electricity.

The undulating exterior walls at ground level are clad with corten and a scale panel of recycled sheet metal, which is waste material from the production of plate heat exchangers.

The 2,400 square meter facade is designed to be dismantled and the material used again once the mobility house has reached the end of its life. Therefore, all materials are kept as clean and raw as possible. The fastening system can also be easily dismantled.
