Coworking in Gothenburg
An experiential coworking space
Arena Platinan—Vasakronan's latest coworking office—is located on the 12th floor of Platinan, near the southern end of the new Hisingsbron bridge in Gothenburg. Kanozi has developed the concept and interior design for the 2500 square meter area with flexible workplaces, meeting rooms and generous social areas.
The location near Göta Älv inspired the concept. Gullbergsvass has steadily grown from a wetland landscape along the river, to a busy dry dock for large ships, to the area as we know it today.
There is a calmness with beautiful Scandinavian tones drawn from nature, from the calm river to Gothenburg's changing weather. Platinan will be an important part of the future development of the district, and the Arena will be the core, the focal point that ties everything together.
Greenery is a natural part of the terraces, mirroring the natural material choices of the interior. Many of the materials are repurposed from Kromet, the building that previously stood on the site. The tiles below the roof have been manipulated to get a new pattern, the concrete base has become a bar counter and the reception desk is covered in the facade sheet of the previous building. A project with a strong focus on the environment and sustainable material choices.
We see the Arena Platina as a canvas for its members and its surroundings, an enhancement of the site and the stunning views. Platinum is a durable, timeless and malleable material, just like Arena Platinan.
