Abstract [en]

In modern society, loneliness is often talked about as an undesirable thing and something that should be eliminated, which makes it obvious that many people are suffering from it. 

Considering that the physical spaces we inhabit significantly shape our social interactions and relationships, this project aims to highlight the importance of spatial design in fostering connections with others beyond oneself. Specifically, the gaze is directed toward co-living.

Slakthusområdet is a slaughter industrial area that is going to be developed from an industrial area into an urban district with lots of housing.  On the site, I have examined how spatial design can create a lifestyle on our own initiative and feel a sense of belonging in a new environment. Through personal observations, this project explores a way of life that accepts loneliness and seeks to live with it. In this project, I call this way of living “Being alone together”.

By using physical models as the primary medium, I proposed a housing complex that offers diverse forms of living spaces to accommodate all residents.

This new approach to communal living holds the potential to unlock new possibilities of life, particularly for urban dwellers. Furthermore, it offers a fresh and unique solution in response to the housing challenges faced in Stockholm.
