Tengbom is preparing to break ground on their competition-winning proposal “Kotten” (The Pinecone) in the Fontin area of Kungälv municipality. Following the destruction of the old trail centre in a fire in 2013, Kungälv municipality arranged an architectural competition for a new, modern trail centre in the Fontin area.

Tengbom’s oval-shaped Kotten is designed with an "expressive facade and sedum roof which blends in with the surroundings." It's exterior will be constructed of wood that will naturally grey over time, while the interior is a contrast in warm birch plywood. Programs will include a café, meeting room, changing rooms and sauna.
