Abstract [en]

Gnesta community center is located at the main square, right next to the railway station. As the city grows, a new center block is planned where the community center would be located on the eastern end of the block. My ambition was to create a building that reflects the small-town character found in Gnestaby working with materials from the site, intimate rooms and meetings with the citizen. By making use of the material from the old station house across the street, the buildings create a portico to the city. The meeting between the railway, the station building, the main square and the community center becomes a clear centerpiece in the city and a representative place for Gnesta.

Abstract [sv]

Medborgarhuset i Gnesta är placerat vid det stora torget, precis i anslutning till järnvägsstationen. Då staden växer planeras ett nytt centrumkvarter där medborgarhuset skulle bli beläget på kvarterets östra gavel. Min ambition var att skapa en byggnad som reflekterar småstadskaraktären som finns i Gnestagenom att arbeta med material från platsen, intima rum och mötet med medborgaren. Genom att plocka upp materialiteten från det gamla stationshuset på andra sidan gatan skapar byggnaderna en portik till staden. Mötet mellan järnvägen, stationshuset, stora torget och medborgarhuset blir en tydlig mittpunkti staden och en representativ plats för Gnesta.
