Fastighets AB Balder: Balders upper secondary school named Stockholm Building of the Year 2019
The Stockholm Building of the Year 2019 is Anna Whitlocks Upper
Secondary School on Kungsholmen, voted as the winner by Stockholmers
themselves. The capital citys largest upper secondary school with
2,500 pupils was created in an extremely short period of time by
Balder in collaboration with the City of Stockholm.
Our goal has been to create a very pleasant environment for both
pupils and teachers. I view the award as a fine recognition that we
succeeded, comments Erik Selin, CEO of Balder.
For the tenth consecutive year, Stockholmers had to vote for their
favourite building in the competition arranged by the City of
Stockholm. Apart from an aesthetic focus, other criteria included
sustainability, innovation and the buildings importance for
Stockholm as a city. Anna Whitlocks Upper Secondary School competed
in an intense contest with nine other buildings, including
Nationalmuseum, Innovationen and 79&Park.
The jurys motivation was as follows: A proud building for proud
pupils. Allowing young people to have access to this building is
fanstastic in every way. A public building has a public content. A
respectful reuse of a robust architecture, carefully accomplished
with a magnificent result. The winner was announced on Wednesday at
a ceremony in Kulturhuset. The award, in the form of an engraved
bronze plaque, was given out by the Chairman of the jury, the Vice
Mayor for City Planning Joakim Larsson.
We feel honoured and delighted that the City of Stockholm has chosen
to locate such an important activity with us. By building this way,
we are saying who we are. We want to do this again in Stockholm or in
other cities, says Erik Selin.
Anna Whitlocks Upper Secondary School - which was opened ahead of the
autumn term in 2018 - is located in the building on Kungsholmen that
previously housed the County Adminstrative Boards operations. The
City of Stockholm rents the entire property via Sisab, which has
entered into a long-term rental relationship with Balder.
