Cobe and Yellon win residential tower competition at Stockholm’s historic gasworks
Cobe and Yellon have been announced as winners in the international competition to design 'Stadsljus', a new residential tower rising 110 meters above sea level situated on the site of Stockholm's former historic gasworks.
Announced today by OBOS, one of the largest housing developers in Scandinavia, together with the city of Stockholm, the project is set to redefine the flat city fabric of Stockholm while paying homage to the historical significance of the site. The tower will house approx. 300 apartments of different sizes, alongside a ground-floor restaurant and preschool. Its distinctive circular shape draws inspiration from the historical gasholders of the site.
