Future-Proof Office Building for Creative Companies
This future-proof office building has been primarily built to attract creative companies: it has a colourful façade and unique shape, and its interior is characterised by flexibility and abundance of natural light. The building is located near supermarkets, a cinema, a gym, outdoor pools, mountain biking trails, hotels and restaurants. On the top floor, occupants can have drinks and food at the ‘Sky Bar’ and enjoy one of the best views of the city.
Designed around flexibility, tenants can choose between open space and closed offices and can change the indoor layout to meet future needs. The level of natural light inside the building is maximised using floor to ceiling windows.
As structural engineers, our biggest challenges were the foundation design, which needed to take into consideration new subway tunnels, and the complex concrete core which stabilises the 100 m high office building. Tension rods were used to anchor the core foundation into the bedrock, and to some extent, these have had to be coordinated with the subway tunnels. In addition, we are designing a new subway station inside one of the buildings.
We are responsible for structural engineering of Sthlm 01 and 04 (a 12-storey office building of 24 000 m2 adjacent to Sthlm 01), both of which aim to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
