A world-class Performing Arts Centre
An old industrial storage facility is being transformed into a state-of-the-art performance centre.
An old warehouse and port district in Stockholm has been undergoing a facelift, and ÅF has been asked to convert the antiquated dome of a gas storage facility into a world-class performing arts centre.
Impressed with the holistic way in which ÅF works, the city of Stockholm has asked them to use this integrated approach for the transformation of Gas Dome 2 from a restricted business area into a performance space for concerts and dance that is open to everyone.
The assignment includes project management, design management and construction management. ÅF is also responsible, in collaboration with the city, for managing the dialogue with all relevant authorities, stakeholders, tenants and other developers in the area.
ÅF's assignment began in 2011 and will be completed with the opening of the new stage in 2018. When completed, Gas Dome 2 will accommodate approximately 900 guests. With its unique, circular stage it will place Stockholm on the global cultural map.
