Berg | C.F Møller Architects and DinellJohansson win major residential project competition

Berg | C.F Møller Architects and DinellJohansson have won a competition to create a new landmark for Stockholm with their proposal for the world's tallest wooden skyscraper and two other housing projects.

The competition was organised by Swedish cooperative real estate organisation HSB with the aim of celebrating the association's centenary in 2023.

"Although it has not yet been decided whether it will be the wooden skyscraper or one of the other two submissions from Berg | C.F Møller and DinellJohansson that we will proceed with, we are very excited and eager to start up the actual building phase of the project together with this team of architects," said HSB Stockholm CEO Anders Svensson.  

"Berg | C.F Møller and DinellJohansson have taken an innovative approach to the layout and function design of the apartments, as well as to the architectural design and spatial orientation of their buildings," the competition jury's minutes read.

"Our idea throughout the entire competition has been to create a complex of residents to accommodate a diversity of people, ranging from students and families with children to pensioners - a complex which creates ideal conditions for both busy modern lifestyles and community spirit, whilst also making it easy to live sustainably," said Mårten Leringe, managing director of Berg | C.F Møller in Stockholm.

Berg | C.F Møller Architects and DinellJohansson beat two other groups of architects - Rosenbergs Arkitekter in partnership with Utopia Arkitekter and Equator Stockholm with Mojang - to win the competition.
