Batteríið architects has, in collaboration with Landslag landscape architects and Mannvit engineering consultancy firm, won first prize in a planning competition in Garðabær.
The winning plan proposes a family friendly mixed urban environment, with high focus on pedestrians’ accessibility, public spaces and preservation of nature. The future Borgarlína, high quality public transportation system, is a key element in the Transport orientated development. New square Flesjutorg, proposed pond and Hraunholtslækur will liven up the environment and encourage both physical and social activities.
Quote from the jury:
“Transportation and pedestrian access, design of open green spaces and mixed use building blocks around Hafnarfjarðarvegur are particularly well resolved in the proposed plan.”
