Europan13 – Special mention!
”People from all over Stockholm enjoy the newly developed area in Nacka. The area was previously runned by Statoil to load trucks and ships with fuel and was completly closed for the public. Now it is a natural part of the city fabric designed for vivid urban life and recreation with an astonishing view of Stockholm and its archipelago. The district is built around its backbone – the spine where all urban life is concentrated, shops, public meeting-points, public transportation, leasure and relaxing. The street is vivid and urban and it helps to connect the area to the rest of Nacka. Within the area different layers – or communities make you feel at home. It is here you meet your neighbours and the kids can run around barefoot.”

Beställare Europan13 / Nacka Kommun
Urban Minds propose a connected and intergraded part of city structure of Nacka that gives back more to the community than it takes. It has such a closeness to the nature that is unheard off in the Stockholm region. Vivid streets and welcoming public spaces. Rocky mountains perfect for climbing and downhill. The forest for hiking. And the best of all. The urban balconies that are open for the public to enjoy an astonishing view of Stockholm. This combination not only makes Bergs into a fantastic place, Bergs becomes ’The hanging gardens city of Bergs’.
“The municipality was clear from the start; that if we want Bergs to be full of city life and populated, not only by the dwellers but also by visitors from all over the Stockholm region, we need to work together.” – Says Capitali. “The public spaces and functions have had the highest priority from the start which was a precondition for us to build our (geimenshaft) house here.” – Says Ideali.
So bring you hiking boots, swimwear, bike, climbing boots or just yourself to enjoy Stockholm´s new city district!
