Herzog & de Meuron, Gasklockan Tower in Stockholm (Sweden)

Since 2009 the Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron and the Swedish company Oscar Properties have been working in the design of a residential block in Stockholm, in a place where there are several gasometers in disuse. Images recently released tell us more about it. The 90-meter-tall cylinder will replace one of those industrial buildings, adopting its form. The resulting geometry is a result of the composition of V-shaped apartments of different sizes, positioned to optimize ventilation and the entrance of natural light. The Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf and landscape architecture firm LOLA will do the job of transforming the immediate surroundings, integrating the late 19th-century brick buildings, designed by the Swedish architect Ferdinand Boberg.
