Study visits

Welcome to a study visit to some of Stockholm’s urban development projects. The projects offer various types of urban challenges and solutions. Every project is based on the City of Stockholm’s vision of developing a sustainable city for all. A study visit in Stockholm is primarily for groups that study or work with urban development.

Stockholm city's profile project for socially sustainable urban development

In Skärholmen, there has been almost no urban development at all since the time of the under the so-called million programme in the sixties, when Sweden made a huge housing investment. Now 6,500 homes are planned here.

From traffic solution to meeting place

After more than 80 years, the Slussen water lock was worn out and needed to be replaced. At the same time, the area is being adapted to meet the needs of today's and tomorrow's Stockholmers.

In the future Slussen will be an efficient and safe junction for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. It will also become one of Stockholm's most attractive meeting places with park life, entertainment and culture, restaurants and cafes.

Slussen is the city of Stockholm's largest climate adaptation project. With a fivefold capacity to release water from Lake Mälaren to the Salt Lake, the risk of flooding in Stockholm and the Mälardalen is reduced. It also secures the water supply for the approximately two million people who get their drinking water from Lake Mälaren.

This project contains:

  • New traffic solution
  • Bus terminal in Katarinaberget
  • New water constructions with lock and discharge channels
  • Meeting places

Address and showroom, Södermalmstorg 4.

Hammarby Sjöstad

In 1996 it was decided that Hammarby Sjöstad would be built as an example of environmental adaptation. It thus became the city's first environmentally profiled district where technical installations, buildings and traffic environments were environmentally adapted.

Hammarby Sjöstad was conceived as an Olympic village, and the environmental aspects were therefore given a prominent role. Despite the fact that the Olympics went to Athens and not to Stockholm, Hammarby Sjöstad developed into one of Stockholm's largest urban development projects with a high environmental profile.

This project contains:

  • Integrated urban planning
  • Traffic solutions, good access to public transport and well-developed cycle paths.
  • Efficient energy solutions such as heating houses with purified waste water
  • Garbage sorting close to the property
  • Vacuum waste collection
  • Food waste collection
  • Municipal and private services such as shops, healthcare and restaurants.
