The district of Gåsen is located in the historic center of Lindesberg and within the national interest in the cultural environment. The town plan structure from 1644, which has been maintained, testifies to the city’s historical origins, and is contemporaneous with many other small towns in Sweden, all of which have received a similar grid plan. The grid plan in Lindesberg, located on Lake Linde, has integrated the lake location with the central part of the city. The historic main street, Kungsgatan, runs parallel to the lake and the alleyways, between the block on the seaside, look out to the water with views that are reinforced by outhouses extending towards the lake. This has been characterized asan important quality to safeguard in the National Interest Cultural Environment. Two new residential buildings in Kv Gåsen, it is proposed to follow the historic city plan, run along the street in the same line as the city’s other historic buildings, but with a ground floor enclosure to manage the flood risk. However, from Kungsgatan, which is higher than the lower part of the block where the two new residential houses are placed as flutes to the rebuilt Strandskolan, the house bodies and their locations in line with the water will dominate.
