Olovsson, Elin, 2010. Kvarteret Mjölnaren : bostadsgård på bjälklag. Second cycle, A2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Urban and Rural Development



Uppsalahem, Uppsalas municipal renting company, builds about 250 new apartments every year. Mjölnaren in Kungsängen is a project which contributes with about 130 new renting apartments finished in 2010/2011.

This report has lead up to a proposal. Focus lies on how to create a courtyard on beam joists where shape, style and different types of functions are important elements. The report also brings up ground materials, details, plants, availability and built up plantings. All these aspects together are what create a well functioning and pleasant courtyard.

All through the work with this report I have taken part of the meetings concerning the project. From September 2008 to may 2009, these meetings have been held every other week and the result is about 40 hours of discussion and making decisions. My biggest effort has been to create a proposal which I have audited every time new conditions have come up during the meetings.

The result is an urban courtyard where I want to create a verdant yard in the center of Uppsala. The conditions, referring to shallow soil depth and requests from Uppsalahem, have given me both challenges and opportunities With my proposal I want to give the people living in Mjölnaren an area for playing, meeting and recreation.
