Description: In the new part of Rosendal, southern part of the Uppsala University area, this big building is giving room for a lot of young and older habitants of Uppsala. The green and active living has been an overall vision and goal for the project, with results in wider stairs, six storey fitness, roof top basketball and running course etc. All the compact apartments have an extra meter to the ceiling, which can be used as extra living and sleeping area on top of the bathroom and entrance. Also, the massive larch wood windows are full height, from floor to ceiling, which allows a lot of daylight into the living space. Every second apartment have a balcony and every second has some extra square meters instead, and on the top floor just under the running course, all the apartments have huge wooden terraces with a great view throughout the beautiful landscape and forest that surrounds this extension of southern Uppsala.
This project Mikael Ahrbom was in charge for at his prior job, CCO architects in Copenhagen and followed up from the new SustainVR from Uppsala.
