#21 Malmö Market hall

The old freight depot from 1898 was no more than a roofless shell when the developer decided to turn it into a market hall.

Extract from our publication News in Nordic Architecture

“A gap in the roof between the new and existing building allows daylight into the old brick facade, while the facade cladding of weathered corrugated steel echoes the industrial environment which has historically dominated the district.”

Extracts from our latest publication News in Nordic Architecture
