the narrow site - only give meters wide, fills a gap in the street that has been vacant for over 50 years in Landskrona, Sweden.
Architects Elding Oscarson say of the site:
Immediately adjacent buildings are low, but the street is lined with buildings of various height, size, facade material, age, and approach. Behind the row of buildings is a colorful world of back yards, brick walls, sheds, and vegetation. We find this small-scale, naturally worn place extremely beautiful.
The building relates to the surroundings in scale, proportion and in the way it adds to the established rhythm of low and tall buildings along the street. Our intention is to use small means to create an array of different spatial experiences in this very small project.
