3XN behind the new project in central Stockholm

2012.08.29
"Stockholm is a beautiful historic city, and therefore new architecture must be very sensitive to the traditions and characteristics that define the city’s architectural traditions", explains 3XN's Principal and Creative Director Kim Herforth Nielsen, on the starting point for the design of 'Stockholm City' Station.

The multifunctional 'Stockholm City Station’ is divided into four smaller volumes, each of which, through height and scale, adapts to the streets and buildings that they are adjacent to. "Our analysis showed that Stockholm has an architectural tradition of marking corners with towers. It is, for example the case of historic buildings such as the Kung Towers in the Norrmalm district, and we have chosen to continue these characteristics in 'Stockholm City Station’”, says Kim Herforth Nielsen.

The client for the project is the Swedish Jernhusen, a property development company specializing in the development of railway areas, including stations. 'Stockholm City Station’ has a total area of 28,000 m2 and is expected to be completed in 2017.
