Uppsala Municipality and Region Uppsala are planning for a new tramway between Uppsala C and Bergsbrunna and a number of new bridges are needed along the route. We have, in collaboration with Bjerking, been commissioned to design a new bridge at Ångström, one over Fyrisån at Ultuna and a new fauna passage in Sävja, as well as the remodeling of the Icelandic bridge.

Locum is overseeing the continuous development of their properties, and we are happy to be working this spring with the property development plans for two of Locum’s realties, Danderyds and Rosenlunds hospital.
The construction of the Tullgarnsbron is now approaching. The bridge is an important link for pedestrian and car traffic across Fyrisån in Uppsala. Our proposal for the movable bridge was selected in a parallel assignment back in 2010. The design idea is to create a modern urban bridge that marks the delineation city-park and visualizes the opening function in a dynamic way in both its open and closed position.
Together with White Architects and Tyréns – traffic, we are working with a structure plan for Skärholmen’s central area, which is one of the eight developing areas in the Fokus Skärholmen project. Within the project, we are exploring possibilities for an urban development with an interconnecting street network and mixed programming – that is also part of the future regional center Skärholmen-Kungens Kurva. In our work, is the integration of the future tramline “Spårväg Syd” into the urban structure an important issue.
Following our team’s win in the competition “Linköping-The City Center is growing across the river” in 2013, that dealt with the urban development and a new travel center in central Linköping, we have been further commissioned to develop an urban design strategy for the development of Linköping’s inner city. Our work aims to support the local municipality in their process of developing masterplans for Steninge and Stångebro. The planned high-speed railway “Ostlänken“ will pass through our study area and get a new station in Linköping, generating conditions for a growing inner city. The work is done in collaboration with the former competition team members, Sweco (formerly Metro), Sydväst landscape architecture, A&C – consultants and SpaceScape.
The office turns 20 this year and we celebrated the anniversary with a jubilee party in the upcoming ticket hall at Hagastaden Metro Station. We also took the opportunity to celebrate the release of the book Vardagens Rörelser (Everyday Movements) which is about our work. The editor, Dan Hallemar, held a speech about the book, followed by live jazz by The Highway Stompers, food, ping pong and dancing to DJ DIANE until late into the night. Thanks to everyone who defied the dark and the rainy November nights to come and celebrated with us!
