Here’s some more from the architects:New terminal for Stockholm’s permanent ferry connections to Finland and the Baltics
The new terminal for Stockholm’s permanent ferry connections toFinland and the Baltics will be a landmark for the new urbandevelopment Norra Djursgårdsstaden – both architecturally andenvironmentally.
The terminal, which will have a facade covered with expanded mesh,recalls the shape of a moving vessel and the architecture – with largecranes and warehouses – that previously characterized the ports.
At the same time, the terminal has an ambitious sustainable profile, characteristic of the entire development.
The main idea has been to create natural links between centralStockholm and the new urban area in connection with the terminal, sothat city life will naturally flow into the area.
Therefore the terminal is raised to be at level with the urban zone,so it is easy for both pedestrians and traffic to access.
At the same time the roof of the terminal building is designed as avaried green landscape with stairs, ramps, niches, and cosy corners,inviting both Stockholmers and passengers for a stroll or relaxingmoments, while enjoying the view of the ferries, the archipelago, andthe city skyline.
The plan is to communicate the sustainable efforts to the people inthe building by using i.e. centrally placed television screens, helpingto raise awareness of the potential of sustainable construction.
