Södertälje / for AstraZeneca
This building contains laboratories, processing facilities, offices and support functions such as a library, video-conference room and lecture theatre. A centre of expertise for the entire group that maintains contacts with various operations all over the world, it marked the start of AstraZeneca’s focus on biotech research.
A few stories taller than most buildings in the Gärtuna site, this building soars like a white diamond. Smaller glazed exteriors and timber cladding have been added. The detailed interior planning provides daylight from an atrium with a Japanese garden. The main planning of the building and its interiors was undertaken within what was then HJS Architecture.
