The Hyllie Hybrid is a pilot project that pushes the boundaries of flexibility and multi-use to increase the lifespan of the building.

Today, our buildings basically serve a single function. A residential building is a residential building. An office building is an office building. Planning legislation and building regulations make it difficult to mix functions in the same property. As needs shift and the market changes, property owners find it difficult to adapt their building - with the climate being the big loser.

Hylliehybriden is a pilot project that challenges current planning and building standards in order to increase the lifespan of the building and thus its sustainability. The multifunctional house is the result of research and development work between the architectural offices FOJAB and smogstudio and the real estate developer Fler bostäder.

The building is exceptionally flexible thanks to a simple modular structure and rooms that meet all the requirements for housing, offices and hotels. The building can have multiple functions - simultaneously. Rooms can be assembled into larger or smaller units and easily changed over time and as needed. When the children have moved out, part of the apartment can be split off and rented out as an office, for example.

The Hyllie hybrid also adds new qualities to the site. The mix of activities provides good conditions for a vibrant neighborhood and meetings between people. The corner space has been designed as a public meeting place, a node in the city that creates identity and can be used by everyone. The ground floors have been designed to support a living city; sight lines and levels open up and create curiosity. The building's urban dimension contributes to a robust and multifaceted community building.
