The Frihamnen RiverCity is the largest urban development project in Scandinavia. The proposed 16 500m2 transformation and extension of the existing warehouse located on the riverfront will contribute to a more inclusive and vibrant area of the city. The site occupies the edge of an existing public square with Magasin 113 itself located in a historic warehouse structure. The proposal will offer flexible offices, an art center, pop-up spaces, a café, tourist information, shops, a restaurant, and studios. Gothenburg-based advertising agency Forsman & Bodenfors and Göteborgs Konsthall have plans to establish their offices in the building.
The current brick façade and interiors of the warehouse will be restored and repaired with the existing concrete frame adapted to support three new levels of timber-framed floors above. These new levels will allow for additional programs and for the experience of diverse atmospheres across all levels.
