Abstract [en]

The title of my project is living quarters above stables. This idea is based on the long history we have of living together with livestock. I will investigate the possibility of applying this traditional concept in present times and work with the limits and the possibles to integrate modern horse activities in an urban environment. Horse riding is a very popular sport and hobby for Swedish people of all ages. There are more horses than ever living in Sweden today, but they are less visible and integrated  in todays urban planning. 

Stockholm is a city which is growing at a very fast pace and the need for a more diversified city has become apparent.  

My idea is to offer horse riding enthusiasts who work in the city, the possibility to live in a smaller more practical area within the city, and eliminate the need for them to have to either buy an expensive farm outside the city or travel to stables every day. 

This project is about creating a living standard that both the humans and horses can benefit from and bring an increase in satisfaction to their lifestyles. 

Abstract [sv]

Titeln på mitt projekt lever kvartal ovanför stallet. Denna idé bygger på den långa historia som vi har att leva tillsammans med boskap. Jag kommer att undersöka möjligheten att tillämpa denna traditionella begreppet i nutid och arbeta med de gränser och de possibles att integrera moderna hästaktiviteter i stadsmiljö.

Ridning är en mycket populär sport och hobby för svenskar i alla åldrar. Det finns fler hästar än någonsin i Sverige i dag, men de är mindre synliga och integreras sällan i dagens stadsplanering.

Stockholm är en stad som växer i mycket snabb takt och behovet av en mer diversifierad stad har blivit en stor samhälsfråga.

Min idé är att erbjuda ridning entusiaster som arbetar i staden, möjlighet att bo i en mindre mer praktiskt område inom staden, och eliminera behovet för dem att behöva antingen köpa en dyr gård utanför staden eller resa till stall varje dag.

Projektet handlar om att skapa en levnadsstandard som både människor och djur kan dra nytta av och få en ökad tillfredsställelse till sin livsstil.
