Juul | Frost Architects’ new Hyllie Corner designed for Midroc Property Development in Malmö promotes social sustainability with the building’s versatility and diversity of dwellings as prerequisites for new social meetings.
The Hyllie Corner has been adapted in relation to the context and site to secure optimal daylight conditions for the dwellers.
Hyllie Corner’s project was short-listed for a 2021 International Architecture Award from The Chicago Athenaeum and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Urban integration Hyllie Corner has been adapted in relation to the context and site to secure optimal daylight conditions for the dwellers.
The open building structure range from 4 to 8 stories, with an adjacent 4-story free-standing building with a semi-public courtyard, that integrates the building into the urban fabric through direct access to one of Hyllies’ central green arteries.
The buildings comprise apartments of varied sizes, from small studios to spacious family homes, and have café and smaller shops on the ground floor facing the avenue adding to the area’s urban life. An architectural landmark Based on the distinctive location of Hyllie Allé and the protruding building site, the distinctive corner of the building has been designed to highlight Hyllie Corner as a new landmark and point of orientation.
The building is 8-stories towards the avenue and scaled down to 4 stories towards the open courtyard. “Hyllie Corner is a sharp building and a fine example of how talented architects and far-sighted city planners can create unique urban spaces, while we build homes like never before.” – Märta Stenevi, Municipal councilor and chairman of the city planning committee.
The integration of building, landscape, and urban space has been crucial for the design of the project. The architects focus on social sustainability, where buildings promote versatility as a prerequisite for new social meetings. The project will both strengthen the intensity of city life and create a safe sense of belonging for residents and users of the neighborhood.
