Text description provided by the architects. Magasinet is a cultural center in Falun situated in an old storage hall for the railroad. On behalf of Kulturföreningen Magasinet, Sweco's architects in Falun were given the opportunity to design a new extension. The vision was to exhibit the entrance and provide space for the wardrobe, which had previously taken an overly large area. The building has got a modern design language, which is in line with the multifaceted cultural activities that are currently being conducted in the magazine. Form plays with the old buildings roof landscape and coincides with the roof angle of the building.

Inside, the rooms are filled with light from the skylights and the walls consist of white painted wood paneling with ground concrete flooring. The external material is banded black plate on both walls and ceilings. The new entrance building has been cautiously docked to the magazine, and you clearly see the transition between the new building and the Magasin's hot red brick walls.
