In Kronan, a short drive from the center of Luleå, where the air defense regiment used to be, we have completed 159 apartments in Kompassen. Kronan is a natural city near both forest and sea and has its own district center, school and preschools. Today, the Kronan district consists of five residential areas and a workplace area. The central Luleå is just a few minutes’ drive away, as are the airport and the university.
The Kompassen distric is designed as a small-scale and active city district characterized by variety. The block encloses a playful courtyard that opens onto the new “meeting point”. Facade materials such as stone and wood age with dignity. The roofs are designed to give the block an eventful silhouette, with the highest saddle roofs to the west, south and east and pulpit roofs to the north. An automated parking solution is integrated in the neighborhood. The block has a high environmental profile with low energy consumption.
