Wingårdhs wins a land allocation agreement in Falsterbo

Together with the developer JR Kvartersfastigheter, Wingårdh Architects is designing the Gläntan district along the Falsterbo Canal in the town of Vellinge.

19 Feb 2019

For several years the municipality has promoted the development of the Falsterbo Canal with the goal of creating a vibrant community. In the master plan for the district, the canal area is divided into three general development areas: Hamnen, Piren, and Gläntan.

The Gläntan area comprises about 70 housing units and is the first of the three to be developed. The units include apartments and row houses that link together Höllviken and Ljunghusen, and together with the neighborhoods on either side of the canal they create a new entrance from the water.

“The challenge for us has been to add what’s missing without depriving the area of any of its existing assets,” says Wingårdhs architect Joakim Lyth. “That’s both really hard and super simple.”

To link together the canal with Road 100, a plaza is created at the bridge abutment to provide a new meeting place for socializing and recreation. A new building on the plaza offers opportunities for a mix of uses that can enliven the area around the clock. The canal’s watchtower is preserved and will be given a prominent role in the area.

“We have spent a lot of time and resources together with Wingårdhs putting together a proposal that takes care of the site in the best way,” says Nicklas Jungberg at JR Kvartersfastigheter. “We are very happy and satisfied that the municipality shares our thoughts and ideas for Gläntan.”
