Light streams in from the three points of the compass to Annie Önnerdal’s pleasant four-room apartment on Klövervägen in Bålsta outside Stockholm. Although she and the children Erik and Julie have only lived here a few weeks, they have already made themselves at home.
In the natural beauty and calm of Viby Äng in Bålsta lies the newlybuilt tenant-owner development BRF
Fyrklövern. The association consists of a total of 16 apartments in four buildings built using the FyrBo concept developed by TB Exploatering. The project used prefabricated modules from Plusshus which shorten the time from order to occupancy. Annie Önnerdal became the happy owner of the last apartment in Fyrklövern. That it is built using modern wood building technology is, however, nothing that she thought about, just that the construction went amazingly fast.
“I bought the apartment in June 2014 and just eight months later we were able to move in. You could say that it was love at first sight and incredibly positive that construction went so quickly.”
TB Exploatering has put some extra thought into the details and offered buyers a standard range of high-quality. This can be seen among other things in the fine oak parquet flooring, windowsills in stone and the roomy terraces of each apartment. The floor area of 78 sq.m. can be a large two-room, a three-room or, as in Annie’s case, a functional four-room apartment. These are suitable for different family groupings, from the older couple with grown-up children to the new parents of small children and a single parent who has the children on alternate weeks.
“The flexible floorplan has made the buildings attractive in the market,” says Cherie Pettersson at TB Exploatering, who designed the buildings. “Together with Plusshus we have worked out a well-managed flow for the whole build which is the be all and end all for a successful housing project.”
What remains is the landscaping around the buildings where slabs will be laid and lawns rolled out. Annie hopes there will also be a play park and perhaps a small football pitch for the area’s many playful children.
