The Swedish Armed Forces are in the process of expanding their capacity with new premises of 24,500 m² for military facilities on the Baltic island of Gotland.

New offices, training and fitness facilities, a military restaurant and guard building are on their way for the Swedish Armed Forces. The new facilities are a part of a new unit on Gotland consisting of two companies specializing within engineering and tanks.

The objective of the design proposal was to create a simple, highly visible structure taking into consideration the surroundings and existing cultural heritage of the location. The aesthetics are based on the concept of camouflage, as the buildings reflect and imitate their surroundings.

Light plays a key role in the buildings. Daylight and close contact to nature are intended to ensure pleasant conditions for the staff and visitors. Acoustics and a healthy working environment are very much in focus, with meeting areas and space for social interaction given high priority by the client. Flexibility is also important, and the choice of materials makes the flexible use of available space to allow the buildings to adapt to changing requirements over time.
