danish architectural practice 3XN has finalized the 45,000 square meter headquarters of banking group swedbank. located five kilometers from stockhlom’s city center, in the suburb of sundbyberg, the architecture of the office building focuses on scandinavian simplicity, creating a range of integrated social environments.

the building’s program is housed within an unconventional triple-V structure, meaning that employees are located closer to each other when compared to traditional office wings, resulting in more efficient internal communication and knowledge sharing between departments. the large volume is further broken down in order to create manageable spaces that function on a human scale. centered around two spiral staircases, a clear and efficient circulation route connects the building with stairs and bridges ensuring an active variation among the scheme’s eight levels.

semi-public areas are located at ground floor level, offering dining and conference facilities, with the trading floor positioned directly above. other floors contain open-plan offices with common rooms arranged around this central axis, providing a natural transportation path. kitchens, wardrobes and lounges placed along this route create non-defined areas which encourage informal meetings.
