Slakthus – office building
Slakthuset (the Slaughterhouse) is an office building located in what was formerly an industrial and warehousing site some four kilometres from the centre of Gothenburg in Sweden.
Ruukki supplied the building’s façades, for which, based on the architect’s recommendation, Cor-Ten S7 design profiles were chosen.
“Cor-Ten enabled us to create a multiform façade with windows and steel profiles of different sizes. Cor-Ten lends itself to the area and respects its history and character,” says Lars Backman, a project manager from Klövern.
The building is owned by real estate company Klövern and has eight tenants. The entire area is currently being transformed into a vibrant urban hub, which apart from the office building is now home to two restaurants, and a local traffic hub Gamlestadstorget station has also been opened.
