Fornudden School, Tyresö

Commissioner: Tyresö Municipality
Landscape architect: Tengbom
Designers: Broberg & Ridderstråle
Year completed: 2021

Greater Stockholm’s Tyresö municipality is growing and in 2018 the need for a new school became clear. Three years later, a new school was built by NCC Construction with capacity for 750 students in grades ranging from pre­school to year nine. A large schoolyard was developed around the building to make spaces for play, movement and exercise.

Nola provided chairs, benches and tables from Broberg & Ridderstråle’s Parco series for installation throughout the outdoor areas.

From beneath the Parco park benches and tables, graphic paving patterns spread carpet-like motifs over the site. The outdoor running track provides an arena for exercise and play. Photo: Jann Lipka.
