BonTop

55+ accommodation in Mölnlycke

BonTop is based on the idea that there are many older people who lack a natural social context for various reasons. The solution to this problem is housing that provides the conditions for a social and active life.

The communal garden is the main social glue.

The garden offers both a subtropical and lush Mediterranean climate with lush palms and fruit trees, combined with a dry climate with a rocky Arizona feel and hardy cacti. The warm climate is preserved under a specially designed glass roof developed in collaboration with climate consultant Harris Poirazis.

The BonTop concept is built as a classic city block with commercial premises on the brick-clad ground floor and housing with a wooden facade above. An urban design with a focus on the living city on the street and a protected oasis for the residents.

We know that being social and active prevents health problems. If we built more future homes like BonTop, we could avoid involuntary lonely lives characterized by lifestyle diseases.
