Together with Rayside Labossière, White Arkiteter have won a project to revitalise the old Montreal Hippodrome site and develop an inclusive, carbon-neutral district comprising 4 000 – 5 000 new homes. The neighbourhood will be supported by sustainable transportation, new schools and recreation facilities. The proposed new district will seek to provide high quality architecture and landscape design.

Spring is coming for the greenery on the city’s walls and roofs. White Arkitekter has created a leafy roof garden in the heart of Malmö’s vibrant city life.
“As a landscape architect, I see many unused spaces in the city that should be used. The roof terrace is proof of the fantastic green rooms we can create right in the middle of where we are,” says landscape architect Markus Magnusson.

When the landscape architecture turns its gaze upwards, we discover new social spaces and unexpected greenery in densely populated towns and cities. Green roofs are beautiful, soothing – and beneficial! They reduce the burden on the surface water system, save energy and benefit the microclimate. On Smörslottsgatan in Gothenburg, a unique roof terrace links the green forest beyond with everyday life.
Research and development is one of the cornerstones of White, we think it's so important that every year we spend 10% of our turnover supporting projects both inside and outside the company. In this way, we build knowledge that benefits us, our customers and society. Jenny Nordius Stålhamre has participated in several projects on urban greenery and is just finishing a report on a new system for façade greening.
Despite the corona pandemic, we continue to win international competitions and secure more projects outside Sweden. In 2020, we were active on three continents and the international activities accounted for over ten percent of the turnover.
