Architect: Groot Utemiljöer
Designers: Thomas Bernstrand, White Arkitekter.
A courtyard on Torsgatan, Stockholm, behind the Stockholm Vatten-building from 1906, has been designed with activity, recreation and social interactions in mind. Landscape architects Groot Utemiljöer has created an urban beach setting with sun loungers and sun parasols on a private — but inviting — patch of grass surrounded by the city's concrete and stone.
The courtyard is designed to be an active place all year around, free to use for the people living in the building and the companies connected to it.

Långbordet has in this case been modified with a back rest.
Långbordet is a flexible and modular system with integrated parts, perfect for public spaces or court yards.
