After seven years of planning, Stockholm’s largest ever construction project is now underway, and is worth SEK 12 billion. The project will transform and modernise Slussen’s existing transport infrastructure and reduce the risk of flooding with the expansion of the lock.

Having previously won the bid in 2009, Foster & Partners will ensure the city’s vibrancy and historical charm is maintained whilst developing its public spaces. Foster and Partners will maintain pedestrian areas, designed alongside the City of Stockholm by deepening links between Södermalm and the closely packed buildings of Gamla stan. 

Spencer de Grey, Head of Design at Foster and Partners said: “The City of Stockholm has truly embraced a wonderful opportunity to re-establish and reinforce the vital link between Stockholm’s central islands of Södermalm and the heritage site of Gamla stan, rehabilitating the historic fabric of the city while creating a lively new urban destination for all. This is a once in a life time undertaking in a uniquely significant and spectacular setting. We are honoured and very proud to be a part of this incredible and visionary project.”

Within the plans are new commercial and social spaces, such as restaurants, bars and shopping outlets to enjoy. A water plaza will incorporate a mix of private and public buildings, alongside a new cycle  bridge, pedestrian and cycle routes.
