Space, Science Village, Lund

A new city district, Science Village Scandinavia, is being built between the research facilities MAX IV and ESS in Brunnshög in northeast Lund. Wihlborgs won a competition for land allocation for the area’s iconic building “Space”.

Science Village Scandinavia is being planned primarily for companies and research institutes that complement the research facilities but the area will also contain support functions, service, recreation facilities and housing.

In 2015, Wihlborgs participated in a competition for land allocation together with FOJAB Arkitekter led by chief architect Greger Dahlström, and the joint proposal — Space — was declared the winner. The building will house a research hotel and conference space, among other things.

Earlier this autumn, the detailed development plan for the area was passed and Wihlborgs is now acquiring the land where “Space” is to be built as well as an adjacent site with the opportunity to build an additional 5,900 m² of commercial space.
