In cooperation with developers Tjidtjak and Part Construction, PERSPECTIVE Sweden has won the competition for housing on Västra Malmudden in Luleå, Sweden. The project is comprised of 180 units in five buildings. The proposal aims to utilise the unique location next to the water and close to the center of Luleå, and to provide the city with the architectural landmark requested by the competition arrangers. The form and location of the buildings accentuate the point of the cape on which the site is located. The five buildings comprise four to ten floors with sloping roofs creating a varying and singular silhouette, reminiscent of the ore deposits once located in the neighborhood. Apartments vary from studios to large four-bedroom apartments, some with double-height living rooms and balconies. The buildings rise towards the north, providing more sea-views and protection from northerly winds. The jury said that Perspective Sweden’s design “represents the best overall solution and is the contribution to both Malmudden and Luleå that was sought after … In this entry, Luleå will receive its desired architectonical pearl”. Perspective Sweden will now start the detailed planning work.
