Stock­holm-based Kjel­lan­der Sjöberg Ar­chi­tects re­cently won a com­pe­ti­tion for Nacka Port, in Swe­den. En­vi­sioned as a sus­tain­able des­ti­na­tion, the block would con­sist of a mix of res­i­den­tial, retail and pub­lic spa­ces that are eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists. The ar­chi­tects plan to in­sert car­bon pos­i­tive tow­ers con­structed from re­new­able ma­te­ri­als that pro­mote a healthy mi­cro­cli­mate and sus­tain­able life­style. The ar­chi­tects de­signed the new ur­ban block, named Klin­ten, as a city within a city and an at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion for both res­i­dents and visi­tors at all hours of the day. Two pro­posed tow­ers will have a shared podium and an­chor the site. It will have com­mu­nal and pri­vate ter­races. The plan­ning process for the pro­ject has al­ready started, and the of­fi­cial bind­ing de­vel­op­ment plan is ex­pected in 2020.
