Marievik Stockholm

SeARCH wins urban competition in Stockholm


SeARCH has won the invited, international competition for the urban renewal of ‘Marievik’. The plan is located along one of the main access roads into central Stockholm, opposite the island of Södermalm and facing the new bridge by Norman Foster.

The municipality of Stockholm wants to invest in innovative urban solutions. What will be the shop of the future? What is a sustainable neighbourhood and how do we coexist in a dense and mix-use cityscape? How does this neighbourhood serve us in the best possible way?


SeARCH has proposed a glasshouse or winter garden with an adaptable quality. It opens up completely in summer and gives way to numerous possibilities of use. Inside is the new outside, as an asset to the beautiful public spaces and quays as Marievik already has.

By making a glasshouse we’ve extended ‘the outdoor season’ to almost a full year but when the bay is frozen, the sun is shining and dry cold air makes the winter day, the glasshouse can open up completely as well.

In close cooperation with the real estate agency AMF and the City of Stockholm, SeARCH will start with the urban planning procedures.
