The Stockholm Globe Arena (Sweden) is being modernized to offer better event experiences and business opportunities. The C.F. Møller Architects has been commissioned to provide architectural services for the development of SGAF’s property portfolio over the next four years.

A ‘LinkedIn’ post and the ‘C.F. Møller Architects’ stated that the main mission of the real estate company SGA Fastigheter, owned by Stockholms stad, is to own, manage and develop the stadiums in area around the Stockholm Globe Arena, which include the 40,000-capacity Tele2 Arena (multipurpose stadium in Stockholm) and The Globe (16,000-capacity Avicii Arena), as well as SkyView (tourist attraction in Stockholm), the 8,094-capacity Hovet (an arena located in the Johanneshov district of Stockholm), the 3,950-capacity Annexet (sports venue in Stockholm), and the entertainment destination Tolv Stockholm.

The 16,000-capacity Avicii Arena has, since its inauguration in 1989, been one of Stockholm’s most iconic buildings. With a volume of 605, 000 cubic meters (approximately 2 136 540 cubic feet), this is the world’s largest spherical building. The arena serves as Sweden’s national hockey arena but also hosts a variety of other events and concerts. The Avicii Arena has been announced as host for the final of the 2025 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship.

The Stockholm Globe Arena Fastigheter AB (SGAF) is a real estate company owned by the City of Stockholm and it owns, manages and develops the arenas in the Globe area, providing premises and facilities and actively participates in collaborations with other actors to increase the area’s attractiveness.

Maintained Mårten Leringe, Partner and Architect at C.F. Møller Architects, “To once again be entrusted with the task of helping to develop this part of Stockholm as an adviser and architect is something we are both proud of and see as an extremely important assignment. Sports and events will play a major role in our future societies and require a high focus in the aftermath of a pandemic.”

The ‘LinkedIn’ post and the ‘C.F. Møller Architects’ further stated that the biggest changes in the coming years will be the integration of the arena area into the new Slakthus area, which is one of Stockholm’s largest development projects. The Annexet and The Globe will be rebuilt and together with Tele2 Arena, Stockholm will have a modern and competitive arena for all types of indoor and outdoor events in music, sports and culture.

Under the proposal, to be presented to the City Council for a decision in Spring 2022, The Globe’s stadium space will be developed to offer a quality experience regardless of the type of event and audience size. The unique spherical feel will remain for events that fit that environment, and for more intimate events it will be possible to scale down the arena space. The redevelopment is due to be completed in Spring 2025.

The concept for the modernization of the arena space has been developed by HOK, which together with the premium experiences company Legends and schlaich bergermann partner sbp has been commissioned by SGAF. In the project, C.F. Møller Architects is assisting with its expertise and knowledge of the unique building as client support to SGAF, and in the design as local architect for HOK.
