Embryot

Along with safety and traffic flow improvements, roundabouts can also have aesthetic and sustainable benefits. In Stockholm, Sweden, a new roundabout stands out with a center of a raised planter in a unique and dynamic shape. For the project, Milford provided Contrast Freestyle – an edging system that is flexible in the design.

Smart rainwater management solves more problems in the cities

In the coming years, many larger cities have to come up with solutions for the challenges of increasing amounts of rainwater and more extreme weather. By implementing solutions that help protect densely populated and developed areas against flooding, the development of the square serves as an example to be followed when the rest of the city is to be climate-proofed. By actively making use of a city’s green areas in the fight against pollution and securing the city against cloudbursts, smart ways of handling rainwater solve a great deal of the problems, cities today are facing.

Contributes to a greener city

The newly built roundabout with the project name Embryot was constructed in the summer of 2021 in an industrial area in Huddinge, Stockholm. The green vegetation in the middle highlights the roundabout for the motorist and contributes to a greener and more sustainable city.

A unique and non-traditional roundabout

For the center, we provided our innovative and flexible edging system Contrast Freestyle (Milford DK, SE, NO, ENG). When designing the raised planter for the roundabout, the choice of form and size was entirely up to the landscape architect. This resulted in a non-traditional roundabout in a  beautiful and organic shape.

Lights in the darkness

With the steel structures, the landscape architects have had full design freedom to design a unique expression. When darkness falls, lights all around the edge of the raised planter light up the roundabout. This gives the roundabout a new look during night time and makes it visible to drivers and cyclists.
