03 GOTHEN­BURG GO­ING UP

Identity - - PORTFOLIO -

MVRDV and co-ar­chi­tects BSK Arkitek­ter are to trans­form one of the city’s few re­main­ing multi-storey ware­houses into a 16,500-square me­tre mixed-use build­ing. Ma­gasin 113 will of­fer flex­i­ble of­fices, an art cen­tre, pop-up spaces, a café, tourist in­for­ma­tion, shops, a restau­rant and stu­dios. The brick façade and in­te­ri­ors of the ware­house will be re­stored and re­paired, while the scheme also in­cludes the cre­ation of three new lev­els of tim­ber-framed floors and a new pub­lic space. A trans­par­ent glass pro­tec­tive ‘rain­coat’ will be wrapped around the ex­ist­ing ware­house and its new ex­ten­sion.
