New mixed use development for Simrishamn

Simrishamn, Sweden


Most buildings in Simrishamn have brick or timber frames and date from the 19th century. Traditionally built with local materials and typically light in colour with plaster covered stone plinths they are low-rise and have pitched rooves.


This project is for a mixed-use development that will transform an under-used site into a bustling and lively new community.


Way has designed a sensitive answer to a brief that asked for a"contemporary city extension". The architectural proposal is a re-interpretation of the traditional geometry and its colours in a contemporary way.


We are working with italian architects Maurizio Petronio, Silvia di Vita and Filippo Fachinetto on this project.
