White Arkitekter has designed the Sara Culture Centre in Skellefteå, Sweden.
This project sits just below the Arctic Circle in northern Sweden in Skellefteå; a city with traditions rooted in timber buildings, which became the primary inspiration behind the winning design of the international competition for the Sara Culture Centre.
Fostering community and a place to contemplate the possibilities of a more harmonious future with our environment, the building houses four art, performance and literary organisations.
Additionally, a hotel ascends from the base, making the building a 20-storey high-rise, entirely out of timber. At the time of its inauguration in September 2021, the Sara Culture Centre is one of the world’s tallest timber buildings.
