Örebro Market hall: A second chance at a new life

Abstract [en]

How does one restore the original life and program to a building that has been repurposed several times over the preceding decades? In the 1950s, Örebro had a fine market hall with great light and spaces. In the 1970s a supermarket took over the space, and the old roof with its skylights was demolished, but the original construction with its beams and pillars remains today. Reusing the old structure while adding new elements as an addition, I am giving new life to the old market hall and bringing back open spaces and natural light.

My project is a proposal to re-open the old market hall in its old facilities by giving it a new roof to bring back the qualities that was lost in the 70’s. My guidelines during the project have been construction, light transmission and material and I have been focusing on finding a balance between construction and ornament while designing my addition.

Abstract [sv]

Hur kan man ge tillbaka en byggnads ursprungliga liv och program som under decennier omprogrammerats flera gånger? På 50-talet hade Örebro and fin saluhall med fantastiskt ljus och rymliga lokaler. Under 70-talet tog en mataffär över lokalerna och rev då också det vackra sågtandade tak som byggnaden hade, dock står den ursprungliga bärande konstruktionen kvar med sina pelare och balkar.

I mitt projekt återanvänder jag den ursprungliga konstruktionen och väcker på så sätt nytt liv i byggnaden. Jag föreslår ett nytt tak för byggnaden för att återinföra det naturliga ljus som försvann under 70-talet samtidigt som jag skapar nya öppna rumsligheter. Under projektets gång har konstruktion, ljusföring och material varit viktiga element som jag arbetat med. I mitt tillägg har jag fokuserat på att skapa en balans mellan konstruktionen som bär och de ornament som för in ljuset i byggnaden.
