KISTA CENTRE

Kista Centre is Sweden’s largest concen-
tration of high-tech jobs. The existing commercial centre has been complemented with new office buildings, which are thought to function as landmarks of the area. New ecological construction principles have played a major role in the design of the buildings.

The planned office building is located in the eastern part of the Centre. Its outer shape is determined on the one hand by the sculptural sharp and curved shape of the subway viaduct. On the other hand it reflects the new ecological building solutions. The building is surrounded throughout by a glass mantle covering the building and the courtyards. In the dark hours, when the buildings are illuminated, they form an interesting entity.
