Grubbens. Stockholm, SwedenAugust 2009
The client for flat 271 wanted to create a balcony in this listed complex in the island of Kungsholmen built in the mid 20th century. In order to achieve this we needed to persuade flat 373 to do the same as planning wouldn’t be granted if the scheme did not maintain its symmetry.
Pros and cons were highlighted in order for the neighbour to take an informed decision as to whether to accept the proposal or refuse it, as the latter would ruin the client’s intent on pursuing a balcony. The interesting aspect of this small project was the level of detail we went through to inform the planning authorities to allow such intervention, and be able to get approval and consent of neighbour 373 to do the same.
