Architect: White Arkitekter | Client: ACC Glasrådgivare
Location: Skellefteå, Sweden
The Skellefteå Kulturhus is a timber-frame tower complex that places art, performance and literary organizations alongside each other in a spectacular setting. Skellefteå Cultural Centre will be a new home for the Västerbotten Regional Theatre, Anna Nordlander Museum, Skellefteå Art Gallery, as well as the City Library. The complex will also contain a new hotel to accommodate the growing numbers of tourists to the city, as well as to provide a source of revenue for the local authority.
The glass façade wrapping the building reflects the sky while revealing the spectacular exposed timber-framed ceiling inside.
