Bredfjäll is part of Hammarkullen, a suburban area in northeast Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden, that belongs to
the city district of Angered.
It was conceived as a part of the Million Home Programme in
Sweden and was expected to host about 300,000 people in
the future, but economic decline in the 1970s put a damper to
10,4km / 10min
The developments are scattered in the woods and have poor
connectivity with each other.
Construction works in Hammarkullen started in 1968,
with 2670 apartments built eventually and a plan area of
123,000m2 and completed in 1973. A
It is poorly connected to the City center of Goteborg as compared to other outlying areas in the larger city area.

Its notable that Hammarkullen itself is circled by woods that
create a feeling of isolation from other surrounding areas.
There are pedestrian paths through the woods that lead to other suburban areas nearby, like Hjällbo, but they lack enough
lighting and probably seem unsafe.

Hammarkullen is very often potrayed by the media as an immigrant ghetto with issues of social unrest and a gang haven.
AREA PLAN 1:2000
Good media coverage however include the annual celebration
of spring, the Hammarkullen Carnival, that takes place in late
May or early June.

Little has been changed since the 1970s.
Our project area, Bredfjäll, consists of nine buildings. Eight of
them are managed by Graflunds, one of the biggest private
housing companies in Sweden while one building is managed
and owned by Bostadsbolaget.
The eight buildings managed by Graflunds, who also manages other neighbourhoods in Hammarkullen, such as Gropens
Gård, are owned by a Norwegian company, since 2012.
