The outdoor environment at Vildanden has during the past year undergone extensive renovation. According to the customers' wishes, there are now new barbecue areas, new bicycle parking spaces and a boule court.
Vildanden is one of AF Bostäder’s largest housing areas, popular, among other things, for its large green open spaces. The housing area, built in 1966, was designed by Bengt Edman and won awards for its architecture. Using AF Bostäder’s customer satisfaction surveys as a basis, the company has carried out a revamp of Vildanden’s outdoor environment. Based on the students’ wishes, Vildanden has a new bicycle shed with stonecrop roof and bicycle spaces marked with apartment numbers, more barbecue areas with outdoor furniture, new garden areas, better outdoor lighting and a boule court.
The area now also has a tidier, more practical recycling station – an Underground Waste System (UWS) – where tenants can sort glass, metal, cardboard, paper, residual waste and food waste. The waste containers are hidden underground and all that can be seen are neat, letterbox-like slots. Dull containers have been replaced by an airy and pleasant paved area, and it is always clean and tidy.
In cooperation with Lund Municipality, AB Bostäder is building Sagoeken – a new quarter in Kämnärsrätten for both schoolchildren and students. The project has been enabled by 3-D property division.
AF Bostäder is playing an increasingly important role as a developer of the city and its built environment, and is in a record-breaking period in terms of ongoing construction projects.
As developers of the built environment, AF Bostäder has a sustainability mission that is out of the ordinary – to inspire our young tenants to make more sustainable choices in life. They are our future.
Studentlyckan is getting new kitchens, a better indoor climate and new facades. Due to good planning and smart solutions, each apartment is renovated in just ten days, with minimum disruption.
In the spring of 2017, AF Bostäder sold the family housing section of the Vildanden housing area, Vildandsvägen 2–32, to Heimstaden Bostads AB.
To get better control of quality and costs in its construction projects, AF Bostäder has ended with traditional procurement. Instead, projects are designed, calculated and implemented with all the stakeholders.
AF Bostäder is a creator of the built environment and wants to shape long-term sustainable city districts, where students and Lund residents can have a good future.
Most of AF Bostäder’s properties were built during the Million Programme in the 1960s and 70s. We renovates the properties continuously in accordance with a long-term maintenance plan and a fixed annual budget.
Newly-built, sustainable housing can vary widely. The basic factors för us are residential density, space efficiency, materials, sharing economies, high energy requirements and bicycle-friendly surroundings.
Between 2012 and 2017, all balconies and galleries at Ulrikedal were renovated as a part of our maintenance and renewal plan.
In November 2015, AF Bostäder inaugurated Vegalyckan, a result of a cooperation with Lundafastigheter. Here, preschool and elementary school are combined with new housing for up to 172 students.
AF Bostäder aims to develop housing for another 1,250 students by 2021. Focus is on new construction and AF Bostäder is becoming increasingly important as a city developer.
At Gylleholm there are 48 1-room apartments housed in Hans Westman's famous fyrklöverhus (lously translated as "four-leaf cloverhouse") from 1966.
