Stockholm, the capital of Sweden is today one of the fastest growing metropolises in Europe. That results in a shortage of dwellings in general in the capital and even less in the urban center. Described in a newspaper that came out the 30th of Nov, last year;
“only in Stockholm 636 000 people are in queue for a place to live, and at the moment there are 85 available flats.”
This thesis aim to be a discussion through design of how the dwelling shortage in Stockholm can be put at ease through densification of the urban center.
The aim is to investigate and develop a house typology or a small dwelling that can be implemented in the city. Instead of building a totally new area of housing outside the city, my approach is to densify the already existing urban fabric. To spread out the new habitation stock throughout the city instead of developing a new multi-flat building or quarter in only one place in the city. To spread out the dwellers of a specific focus group for more diversity of habitation opportunities in different central areas. And to increase the dwellings in the city, in a humble but contemporary way.
