The project will be built as low-energy buildings with 286 apartments as well as commercial spaces on street level. The buildings are designed in a compact shape, with good insulation standard and energy-conscious use of glass in the facade. District heating is required.
In Tou Park we have aspired to cultivate existing local qualities while customizing the area for upcoming changes. The buildings comprise a continuous perimeter with a clear demarcation towards the street spaces, which opens up towards the playground and park. The area includes the preservation worthy Tou brewery which now houses the cultural institution Tou Scene, and are enclosed by Norwegian Wood Siriskjær, Europan 8 and Kulturaksen.
