Project: SKIPARK 360°, SWEDEN
Client: Skipark 360°
Size: 70.000 m²
Address: Bålsta, Stockholm, Sweden
Year: 2013-2015
Architect: C. F. Møller Architects | Berg Arkitektkontor
Collaborators: NCC

The Swedish branch of C. F. Møller Architects, Berg Arkitektkontor, has designed Sweden’s new, spectacular skiing attraction, Skipark 360°, the world’s most complete indoor ski park with e.g. a 700 m long downhill slope and a drop of 160 m, making it the only indoor ski slope in the world to meet the requirements for hosting the World Cup.

At a height of approx. 135 m, it will be one of Sweden’s largest buildings, and will become a landmark in the forest landscape just outside Stockholm. Construction of the ca. 1.5-2 billion Swedish kroner project is expected to start at the turn of 2013/2014.

The idea for the Skipark 360° in Bålsta – 45 minutes outside of Stockholm – came about as this proud skiing nation has experienced reduced snowfall in the last couple of years. With the new facilities, approx. 70.000 m2 in total, both elite and amateur athletes can train and enjoy the skiing season throughout the year.

Sweden’s new icon

The icon for the complex will be its downhill slope, which will rise as a new landmark. The building has a striking appearance, with a simplified silhouette that emphasizes the Swe-dish landscape of forest and lakes. But it is also dramatic in size – at a height of approx. 135 m, it will be one of Sweden’s largest structures, and will possess a visual tension in the vast building’s few support points, which taper downwards and meet the forest floor at an angle.

Self-sufficient in energy

Worldwide there are today approx. 30 indoor ski resorts for alpine use – the probably most well-known is in Dubai.

A newly-developed concept will ensure that the complex is the most eco-friendly of its kind in the world. The complex will thereby be self-sufficient in energy from renewable sources such as geothermal heating, solar power, wind power and hydropower.

Success in Sweden

C. F. Møller Architects has in recent years headed a great number of large construction projects in Sweden. This is the result of a focused effort. To strengthen the company’s position in Sweden, C. F. Møller in 2007 took over the Swedish company Berg Arkitekt-kontor. The Swedish branch of C. F. Møller has since then worked with assignments such as the national stadium of Stockholm, Swedbank Arena, with seating for 57.500 specta-tors. Among the latest big winning projects are the new, 70.000 m2 cutting-edge laboratory building Biomedicum, a unifying power house for research at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and a new ferry terminal for the city of Stockholm for the ferry connections to Finland and the Baltics. At present the Stockholm Branch is also working on a master plan for the re-development of the Lock, Slussen, in central Stockholm and an extension of the Vasa Museum.
