About the project
A direct encounter between city and sea The Swedish Association of Architect’s prestigious Siena Prize has been awarded to Stockholm’s new beach promenade.
In its verdict, the jury stated: “It is not nature, it is not a quay, it is itself – a direct encounter between city and sea. A welcome addition to Stockholm’s beach promenades”.
The encounter between city and sea has always been crucial to how Stockholm is perceived. From the older quays to the natural beach promenades of the 1940s, Hornsbergs Strandpark is a continuation of this tradition.
Vestre has supplied furniture and litter bins to Hornsbergs Strandpark.
