An unexpected encounter
Situated partly underneath a motorway by the Kungsholmsporten buildings on Essingeleden Bridge, Brovaktarparken evokes a feeling of discovery in passersby; an architectural gem in an unexpected location.
Parametric design principles were applied to address the sloping site and level differences. A system of triangular embankments and terraces were created and between these, walking and cycling trails enable a safe thoroughfare for pedestrians and cyclists. The variations between the embankments and terraces change the experience of the landscape for visitors, depending on their position.
