ECODISTR-ICT_Case_study_visit_2Stockholm (Sweden)

Coordinators: White Architects

Description: Hovsjö is located in the southern part of the county of Stockholm. The area was built during the later phase of the “Miljonprogrammet”, a phase in Swedish planning history when 1 milion homes were constructed in ten years, from 1965-1975, to meet severe housing shortage. Hovsjö, like many other areas of the time, is dominated by multi family modernist buildings but also includes terraced houses. The area accommodates around 6000 people in 2200 apartments/houses. To combat exclusion, unemployment, criminality and a general lack of social capital, the municipal housing owner, Telge, took drastic measures in 2007. A new form of ownership and management was constructed, Telge Hovsjö, making the social cohesion of the area a top priority. Since then and through the active participation and engagement of residents in the area, criminality, violence and unsecurity in the area have decreased. Now the area faces the challenge of retrofitting the housing stock and implementing energy efficient measures.

Topics: Social inclusion and cooperative management
