Congratulations Liljewall — Winners of Best Architecture 2021


We want to congratulate our friends at Liljewall Architects for being awarded Best Architecture 2021 at the Swedish Design Awards by RUM for their work at Kunskapshuset in Gällivare!

The building of Kunskapshuset is an essential part of the vast structural transformation in Gällivare, Sweden, and the result is a visually strong building that stands out but at the same time does not disrupt the architectural integrity of the city.

As a part of the project, Liljewall Architects designed the Gällivare bench, a modular bench system that Nola proudly developed. The bench will soon be a part of Nolas ordinary assortment of furniture.

Read more about the project on Liljewall’s website.
