Martin blended his previous experience designing schools and office interiors to create a cohesive building showcasing Scandinavian design. The openness of each floor allows us to use the space flexibly and comfortably, welcoming different groups of people for diverse purposes.   

The main idea of the building renovation was to create the most flexible building with light, warmth and comfortable interior. Nature is an important part of both interiors and exteriors. All materials and colors were selected to give people a welcoming atmosphere and a sense of Scandinavian design in many of the details. With the use of natural materials we bring back nature to the middle of the city.
