Competition

1. prize in architectural competition. 2002

The new educational facilities for the Swedish National Defence College and the Swedish Institute of International Affairs are located in shared premises on the campus of the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm.

The building radiates a sense of architectural openness and belonging towards its surroundings and the campus area. The fundamental concept is of dedicated office wings which meander vertically and horizontally, thereby creating intervening spaces of various sizes in which common areas and larger halls are located.

The project includes a new building and the rebuilding of an existing, adjoining building. The program is tailor-made for the organisations, and includes a library, auditorium, teaching rooms, relaxation areas and offices.
