Stockholm 01

Sauerbruch Hutton 

A work of the Berlin practice of Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton, this construction is located in a former harbor area of Stockholm, in the Hammarby Sjöstad district. Containing offices and retail spaces, the complex consists of a tower and a small building – 100 and 25 meters tall, respectively. Between them, a wide flight of steps expands the local pedestrian network by providing an additional route to the underground train station nearby. Geometrically the tower is a conical star that gradually pushes its perimeter outward as it rises, thus minimizing its footprint on the ground.
