WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Rådhuset has been converted into a modern upscale fashion department store with a number of famous commercial brand names, and a restaurant and café. Retail brands include Filippa K and Lexington, Scandinavia’s first Club Monaco shop-in-shop, a Denim Library stocking jeans by all from Acne and Nudie to Denim Demon and a Design Corner with hand-picked selections from Dagmar, Rodebjer and Michael Kors among others.

 

The original building had evolved and grown throughout the centuries, of which the oldest parts date from the 1650's and during recent decades, the building had acquired a rather anonymous and closed impression. Rådhuset has considerable cultural and historical value.

 

Several of the 15th-century building’s more venerable features, an ornate mosaic ceiling for one, have been preserved and complimented by a mixture of vintage furniture pieces, art installations and designer décor including an Arne Jacobsen Egg chair and Vivienne Westwood wallpaper. The building’s original qualities and characterful environment have been preserved and integrated in a way that makes Rådhuset a unique Swedish retail hub.

 

A modern, completely transparent extension has been added to the back of the building, along with a new outdoor square and a new main entrance. The incapsulated new functions such as a fan room and escalators transforms the building from latter day extraneous addition and the building's original qualities brought forward.

 

With its new function as fashionable department store with restaurants and cafeterias, the building returns to an open and accessible function within the cities public realm.
