Temporary building gets a new life
Wallenstam is a Swedish real estate company with one million square metres of rental property. The company develops, constructs and manages facilities for sustainable housing and business in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Uppsala. When the renovation of the grand Östermalmshallen began in 2016, a temporary building was erected to enable businesses to continue their operations. The temporary market hall was built with wood elements using materials such as Metsä Wood’s Kerto LVL. After the renovation, Wallenstam purchased the building to find a new purpose for it.
“This reuse project is one of a kind in Sweden. We disassembled a fully functioning market hall in Stockholm, moved it to a new location 500 kilometres away and reassembled the building to fulfil its new purpose as a padel hall. It really is unique,” says Johan Wuollet, project manager for Wallenstam.
