Belatchew Arkitekter Designs Discus - Nacka City's New Landmark

Belatchew Arkitekter has, on behalf of Swedish real estate developer Sveafastigheter Utveckling, designed Discus, a new landmark high rise in central Nacka; a booming part of the Stockholm metropolitan area.

Discus, a new landmark building in Nacka City, which with its characteristic irregular silhouette is designed to become a symbol of a growing metropolitan area. Discus will be placed in the heart of Nacka’s new public transport node, right above the metro station in Nacka City's new city center.

Discus will consist of about 30 floors and will accommodate 450 to 500 apartments of different sizes, together with commercial and public facilities, creating an active and vibrant place.

– Discus is the first high rise in Nacka's most central parts, and with its strong form, the building will contribute to Nacka's exciting silhouette. Discus clearly shows an architectural ambition that Nacka Municipality wants to see in future projects in Nacka City, says Nina Åman, City Architect, Nacka Municipality.

– Nacka is a visionary municipality who dares to test new urban structures where traditional neighborhoods are combined with high rises, says Rahel Belatchew, CEO and Principal Architect, Belatchew Arkitekter.

– Public transport is crucial for the city of the future, and that we now, in Nacka's most central location, can realize our insights and ideas about an architecture for public transport with high passenger flows is very inspiring, concludes Rahel Belatchew.
