drivhus - stockholms city planning & administrative office
Status Competition winner
Client City of Stockholm
With our proposal Drivhus (Greenhouse), designed together with our Spanish colleagues, SelgasCano, we recently won the international competition for the new Stockholm City Planning and Administrative Offices, to be located in the redevelopment area of Söderstaden. Land Arkitektur participated as the landscape architects and SWECO as the structural and energy system engineers. The building will provide a working environment for 1800 people, as well as a democratic meeting space for civil servants, politicians and the public to discuss the future development of the city. The entire project is seen as a larger re-vitalized urban space that will transform the existing context of large-scale event structures into a more humane environment with a new natural park area as its centerpiece, surrounded by housing, shopping and cultural activities. In Drivhus, the greenery of the park continues into the building, literally creeping up “under the skin” of the technically advanced double-façade, thereby becoming an integral part of the building’s energy and ventilation system.
This project was a renovation of what was formerly the Bankgirocentral (Central Money Transfer Institute). Located in the old Slakthusområdet (Meatpacking district) of Stockholm. What was once confined and inefficient space has become modern and transparent working environments for multiple tenants. The project received an honorable mention, ROT prize from the Stockholm Association of Building Contractors. This prize is awarded to projects that have successfully adapted older buildings to new uses while respecting their historical character and value.

We were assigned the task of analyzing and creating a comprehensive development plan for Münchenbryggeriet, a large brewery building complex dating from the mid 1800’s. Today, the buildings house spaces for events, educational institutions, offices and a restaurant. We have worked with the entire process, from conceptual design to completed redevelopment. The scope of work included even landscaping, a signage program, outdoor lighting and a new entrance that connects three different levels with a new lobby and restaurant. The site encompasses a total of 46,000 square meters of interior space.
