A globally connected culture house developed by its members

In a beautiful industrial building in Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm, on Heliosgatan 11-13 a unique culture house is about to be developed. It will accommodate a mix of public activities, creative working and meeting spaces. Behind the idea are well-established, Stockholm-based organizations from the creative and cultural sector, with wide global networks offering cutting edge of contemporary expressions.

The plan for the area is out for consultation until the 12th of February. It suggests that 39 condominiums be built in the house. If instead, 15 of these would become spaces for public activities, Hammarby Sjöstad and Stockholm would have a unique, public cultural house which would link the suburbs with downtown, Stockholm and Sweden with the world.
