White arkitekter and Sprunt | Stockholm WaterfrontStockholm Waterfront is now giving Stockholm a boost in the world of international conferences. The congress facilities with innovative solutions provide Sweden with a venue that will be unique in Europe. Stockholm Waterfront lies adjacent to Stockholm’s Central Station, with thousands of train passengers passing by every day – its position on the Riddarfjärden bay and its proximity to Stockholm’s City Hall also make it an ideal location.

However, it was not possible to accommodate the requirement for a 3,000-seat congress hall and a 2,000-seat dining room, within the triangular plot.

The equation was solved with moveable seating dual-use spaces and a large section of the congress hall suspended beyond the confines of the site, like an enormous canopy over the entrance. Altering the Stockholm skyline also required the confidence of the client and the authorities.

The upper seating assemblies seat 1700 people and allow rapid conversion into two separate halls. The lower section of the hall can add a similar number of visitors in cinema-style seating. Alternatively, the lower seating assemblies can quite simply be retracted to provide space for 2,000 banquet guests.
