Kjellander + Sjöberg, in collaboration with the developer Byggnadsfirman Erik Wallin, has developed two new buildings in the block Jackproppen, in Hjorthagen, Stockholm, consisting of housing, a playground and a preschool. The project contains the first newly built row houses in central Stockholm since 1936.

The project connects the old area of Hjorthagen northwest of Abessinien, with the development area of Norra Djurgårdsstaden. The property, currently consisting of two rows of garages, forms a ledge in the landscape where the new buildings follow the site's steep topography along the mountain. The curved building volumes create a public passage and an undulating courtyard, which is used both by the preschool and the residents. The edifices are to be constructed in timber with green roofs and will relate to the nature of their surroundings both in form and materiality.

Erik Wallin AB has been allocated the land transfer by the Stockholm municipality, for approximately 40 space-efficient housing units, a preschool and parking spaces in the garage in order to meet current and future demands. The development will be reviewed in the planning process, with regard to content and design. Construction is due to commence in 2017. The land transfer was approved on the 11th of December 2014.
