Based on the modular town house system developed by Realarchitektur for a collective housing project in Tensta, the first project, on Kransbindarvägen in Hägersten, Stockholm, has around 40 units spread over 4 buildings. An additional building at the entrance to the project houses a nursery. Construction of the project started in 2012. The project borders a a conservation area with a housing development originally built for workers at the Ericsson factory.
The buildings in the new housing project have been conceived with a set of 4 different unit types, ranging from two storey 4 room flats to three storey 5 room flats. The units are placed at different heights on the sloping site and combine to form larger buildings.
The masterplan for Kransbindarvägen was presented in December 2009.
Construction started in 2012 and was completed in 2014.
