SeARCH wins urban competition in Stockholm

SeARCH has won the invited, international competition for the urban renewal of Marievik in Stockholm.

The municipality of Stockholm wants to invest in innovative urban solutions. What will be the shop of the future? What is a sustainable neighbourhood and how do we coexist in a dense and mix-use cityscape? How does this neighbourhood serve us in the best possible way?

SeARCH has proposed a glasshouse or winter garden with an adaptable quality. The glasshouse can be opened completely. Inside is the new outside, as an asset to the public spaces and quays as Marievik already has. By making a glasshouse SeARCH wants to extend ‘the outdoor season’ to almost a full year.  

The plan is located along one of the main access roads into central Stockholm, opposite the island of Södermalm and facing the new bridge by Norman Foster

In close cooperation with the real estate agency AMF and the City of Stockholm, SeARCH will start with the urban planning procedures.
