The Town Hall is one of the most visited buildings in Stockholm, with more than 300.000 visitors per year.
Our assignment was to solve the accessibility to the building so that the entrance is accessible for All - from Noble Prize winners to children and disabled. The building is designed by architect Ragnar Östberg in 1923 and is an architectural masterpiece of its time. The new design solution is a built-in ramp that make as little interference with original design of the stair as possible. The design work is done in close collaboration with architect Håkan Langseth.
