The plan is located along one of the main access roads into central Stockholm, opposite the island of Södermalm and facing the new bridge by Norman Foster.

SeARCH has proposed a glasshouse or winter garden with an adaptable quality. It opens up completely in summer and gives way to numerous possibilities of use.

Inside is the new outside, as an asset to the beautiful public spaces and quays as Marievik already has.

By making a glasshouse we’ve extended ‘the outdoor season’ to almost a full year but when the bay is frozen, the sun is shining and dry cold air makes the winter day, the glasshouse can open up completely as well.
