LDS reveals Stockholm offices makeover

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has revealed the first images of its competition-winning scheme to overhaul an iconic office block in Stockholm

The studio won the high-profile scheme, its first major job in Sweden, in an international contest last summer. Benoy and RIBA Gold Medal-winner David Chipperfield were both invited to compete for the job.

The practice – supported by local architect Tema – has mooted initial plans for the mixed-use retrofit and extension of the Claes Mellin and Willy Hermansson-designed 1983 Göta Ark building.

Located in Stockholm’s fashionable Södermalm district, the 22,000m² building with concrete facade features a landmark 50m-tall ventilation tower for an underground road tunnel. Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ project for client DTZ Sweden extends the 1980s structure upwards to create a 39,000m² mixed-use office, residential and retail complex.
