Counterpoint becomes Malmö’s new cultural centre
May 9, 2010

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Counterpoint Malmo SwedenSchmidt Hammer Lassen architects has won the competition to design a 54,000 sq.m. concert, congress and hotel complex in Malmö, Sweden. The competition, where Snøhetta, Baumschlager Eberle and Daniel Libeskind participated, also included the development of additionally 35,000 sq.m. for housing and commercial use. This is the second competition won by Schmidt Hammer Lassen architects in the southern part of Sweden in 2010.
The new building complex is situated on Universitetsholmen in Malmö. The building consists of a composition of cubic volumes that are mutually twisted and given different sizes to meet the directions and building heights of the surrounding city. The facades are designed with a homogeneous expression to make the composition appear as one architectonic sculpture.
"The idea is to create a 'house of the city' that incorporates the architectonic expressions of Malmö – a building that will contribute to the existing urban life," said partner at Schmidt Hammer Lassen architects Kim Holst Jensen, and he added, "The context has inspired our choice of materials, colours and the various sizes of the building volumes, yet the building design in itself points to the future."
