Architects has been commissioned by AMF Fastigheter to design a small, affordable
easy to build pocket park in Södermalm Stockholm. The park should be built just
weeks after getting the commission so the concept for the park became to design
a rapid and robust building system that could host the most common park
elements such as seating, tables, trees and bike racks. Due to limited time the
office investigated different of the shelves products to build the park from.
The products selected for this project became standard square profile studs
"Sparre" in different sizes. The building system became a lego
of these studs placed in straight angles to each other making a super simple
structure to build that is both cheap, robust and smart enough to host typical
park functions. By making every layer of studs protrude over the next the structure
is really easy to add components too such as bicycle parking, benches and
tables. The big voids inside the stacks serves as foundations for ten cherry
trees. All cherry trees are equipped with a string of light bulbs giving light
to the park during night hours.
