Ferry Terminal Stockholm by CF Moller

Danish architects C. F. Møller have won a competition to design a new ferry terminal in Stockholm, Sweden.

The terminal will service Stockholm’s ferry connection to Finland and the Baltics.

The massing of the new building is inspired by traditional maritime architecture and its exterior will be clad in expanded mesh.

The new terminal will form part of Norra Djurgårdsstaden, a residential and commercial development in the Stockholm city suburb Hjorthagen.

The terminal will be raised to the same height as the neighbouring development and linked to it via a bridge.

The roof of the terminal will be landscaped to become a public green space and embedded with solar cells to generate power for the self-sufficient structure.

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 to Finland and the Baltics will be a landmark for the new urban development Norra Djursgårdsstaden - both architecturally and environmentally.

The terminal, which will have a facade covered with expanded mesh, recalls the shape of a moving vessel and the architecture - with large cranes 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 central Stockholm and the new urban area in connection with the terminal, so that 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 a varied green landscape with stairs, ramps, niches, and cosy corners, inviting both Stockholmers and passengers for a stroll or relaxing moments, while enjoying the view of the ferries, the archipelago, and the city skyline.

The aim is that the ferry terminal will be predominantly self-sufficient in energy and thus stand as an environmental model for public construction.

Therefore the architecture of the terminal will integrate i.e. solar and wind power, for example the terraced landscape on the roof will integrate beds of solar cells along with the planting.

The plan is to communicate the sustainable efforts to the people in the building by using i.e. centrally placed television screens, helping to raise awareness of the potential of sustainable construction.

    I think it's a very simple but efficient project, especially the seperation of the three programs according to the different views

  • GWang

    Wonderful Renderings!

  • Mic

    Hmm… I'm intrigued.

    Can someone tell me what Maritime architecture the form comes from? Not the facade, but the actual massing of the design.

    Thanks

    Reminiscent of Yokohama ferry terminal by FOA. But not nearly as good in any way at all.

  • ehab

    i like it but is it me or this feel like a museum !!!!

    Now that I look at it more, it looks more like a runway, rather than a shipping port. I guess since it is going to bear the blow of the hardiest race of Nordic people, then let them suffer from their own follies.

    Not bad. I can see a simplified future for new port creation. It is still a bit stale and uninviting. I agree with the desgin elements, however I would not want to spend more than one minute in such a place.

    Even though this project may seems to be simple, it's quite impressive. It's fascinating how the roof of the building serves several functional roles. The roof here plays the role of a power generator and the role of a pedestrian public space.
