Text description provided by the architects. Stockholms most noticeable logistics company Ryska Posten gave Vida arkitektkontor the assignment to help them find and shape their new home. On approx 2000 sq m in the Frihamnen area an existing concrete floor laid the foundation for an office complex that has the feel and function of a mini village. Closed and open areas interact and interweave to give this young company the possibility to continue evolve, grow and have great fun at work.

Designelements as shelving, cable socks and conference room lighting are designed and produced by Vida arkitektkontor.

The massive square outline of the office made it extra important to work with distinctive sight- and light lines. Transparent materials such as glass wall systems and see-through expanded metal panels were used extensively and with it we reached the prerequisite sense of togetherness for the employees.
