TRILLING Student housing, 380 apts, Stockholm (2016-23, built)
On a rocky site in a functionalistic suburb from the 50's, the project consists of student housing in three long building volumes placed perpendicular to the street. Navigating topography and programme, the project balances modernistic planning logic and formal investigations into colour, division, composition and order. Along the street, a shallow colonnade structures the urban relationship, whereas along the dramatic cliff, the subdivided volumes of the buildings climb up and meet the natural ground on different levels.
