Project: MAX IV
Architect: Greger Dahlström
MAX IV is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists with the most brilliant X-rays for research. When organising and designing the facility we focused on the researchers’ functional requirements and the characteristics of the location. The aim is that the high technology process of the facility is reflected by the exterior as well as the interior design. The brushed aluminium of the large experiment hall, the white clad office building with its sun shading device, the white concrete facades and the waving landscape constitute a clear and lasting image for the facility. Sweden’s first office building classed with BREEAM-SE – Level Excellent, EU Green Building – Level Gold and Miljöbyggnad Guld.
