Developed by Oscar Properties, 79 & Park is located next to Stockholm’s Royal National City Park and will overlook spectacular views of Gärdesfältet. The mixed-use complex is primarily residential and will comprise 140 apartments, each featuring one to six rooms, inclusive of a kitchen and outdoor terraces. The ground floor houses commercial spaces as well as a viewing platform on the southwest corner open to the public.

Trees and landscaped areas grow atop the accessible rooftops to blur the boundaries between the park and the building. The mountain-like mass of prefab green-roofed wooden cubes is arranged into four sloped rectangular sections centered on a central courtyard. “In further deference to Gärdet, the massing is visually reduced through a language of pixels, scaled to the human form,” BIG said, according to Dezeen. “This manipulation not only allows for a more organic expression, perfectly reflecting the surrounding landscape, but also provides a way to accomplish the building topography in a controlled and inexpensive way through the use of prefabricated units of standardised sizes.”
