WEATHER PROTECTION - NIGHT & DAY
As the bearer of the Region Stockholm brand, nationally and internationally, we want the shelter to not only meet expectations but also communicate a clear visual identity.
Our ambition is to design a shelter which is completely different compared to those delivered today from well-known suppliers but also in harmony with any other built on-site project in Sweden or the world.
It was important to find a form of the roof that holds the modular system together but at the same time on a larger scale, shares the language with the City of Stockholm’s imaginative roof silhouette, the region’s sacred spruce forest edges and the waves in the water. On a small scale, it flirts in a humorous way with the city’s coat of arms whilst the characteristic folding roofs create what is the very core of how we interpret the task - a room that the user should be within, anticipating and awaiting Region Stockholm’s local traffic.
