Västermalms Atrium is a large residential project, located right next to Skanska’s new headquarters in Kungsholmen, central Stockholm. The project includes 165 apartments, underground parking, a kindergarten as well as additional spaces. The project consists of two large building-volumes, positioned in the (plan-)shape of a V. Opening up towards southwest, the volumes frame a bright and quiet courtyard space.
两座建筑的高度在7至15层之间。最低的部分位于面向 "Warfvinges väg "的檐口附近，而最高的部分则位于每个体量的中心。这两个体量共同构成了一个有特色的天际线，随着人们在附近城市环境中的移动而变化。
The height of the two buildings vary between 7 and 15 floors. The lowest parts are located close to the gables facing “Warfvinges väg”, whereas the tallest parts are located in the centre of each volume. Together, the two volumes form a characteristic skyline, changing as one move around the nearby urban environment.
Seen from the street, the two buildings appear both dense and robust, with bright grey plaster wrapping around the building exterior. Windows are sparse, partly due to the location of bedrooms. Each large bedroom is provided with a slim balcony, achieving visual variation in the façade. The grey colour of the façade is also repeated in the detailing, ensuring a visual continuity.
Seen from the courtyard, the approach is rather different. The façade is based upon modular and repetitive elements which in combination with generously glassed rooms and triangular balconies highlight an openness towards the courtyard – a distinct feature in the project. Grey plaster wraps around the edges, linking the two contrasting concepts.
中央庭院是阶梯式的，从 "Warfvinges väg "开始，向Lustgårdsgatan走去。幼儿园的屋顶被视为一个整体，也包括在庭院的平台中。
The central courtyard is terraced, starting at “Warfvinges väg”, stepping down towards Lustgårdsgatan. Treated as an integral part, the kindergarten-roof is also included in the courtyard terracing.
The internal plan is generally organised with three apartments surrounding a staircase; a two-room apartment, as well as two dual aspect apartments, three-room and four-room. Double height attic apartments are located on the top floor, taking advantage of the sloping roof. All of the apartments in the building face the central courtyard.
