The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Gothenburg has relocated to a new site in Näckrosparken. The new campus makes it possible to centralise the Faculty of Humanities’ operations, which have previously been spread over several different sites. The project includedrenovating and extending the pre-existing building and preparing it for student life. The move can be seen as a first step in making the campus at Näckrosen a unique and creative meeting place for art, culture and the humanities in Gothenburg.

A new concourse for student meetings and study time was created which opens up to the beautiful campus grounds outside. There is time and space for learning, and easy access to secure bicycle parking onsite. Products by Nola feature in the new development, including the Parco armchair with tabletop and the Blenda bicycle bollard.
