Woodlife Sweden | Meet the Architects: Trikåfabriken, Stockholm

A timber-on-top extension with new workspaces. Join the virtual seminar during Archtober! Breakfast in New York or Fika in Stockholm.

Visit the building Trikåfabriken (the Textile Factory), where an extension using “timber-on-top” technique has transformed an old industrial landmark in the center of Stockholm. Four old factory buildings and cultural landmarks have been converted to form a new hub and active center in a new area of the Swedish capital.

The timber-on-top technique allows for the preservation of old buildings. To extend them by adding floors on top also allows for a quick establishment of the worksite and an easier handling of goods at the premises. The new workspaces result in comfortable and healthy office environments for many.

Speakers:

Matthew Eastwood, Lead Architect A/MSA, Tengbom
Ivana Kildsgaard, Director of Sustainability and Quality, Tengbom
Moderator: Mark Isitt, Journalist and Architecture critic
