Finally, Liljevalchs + is completed next to Carl Bergsten’s classic pink building from 1916. On August 12 at 11 am there is a public inauguration with fanfare and speeches on the site in front of the extension.

The New Liljevalchs + is “a work of art” and consists of three floors signed architect Gert Wingårdh in collaboration with glass designer Ingegerd Råman. The facility takes up glittering space in its public space with almost 7,000 transparent glass bottoms to facade.

When you enter the facility, a number of halls with spectacular height and rhythm are opened, halls that provide the opportunity to present large and small exhibitions in parallel. 166 rooflanternins create a grid that enables many different room divisions and light input. With absolute climate control and the highest security, Liljevalchs can receive the most expensive and sensitive of art and stay open every day of the week.

Four new exhibitions opens in connection with the inauguration. Gert Wingårdh, Ingegerd Råman and Bea Szenfeld are behind the exhibitions about concrete, glass and paper. In addition, Kajsa Andersö and Tomas Boman have created the film “Your Diary of the Advent of Liljevalchs+” which will be shown until September 12 at Liljevalchs +.

In addition, Stockholmers and the city’s visitors get a new restaurant and a large shop, while they can be pleased that the main building and restaurant Blå Porten has been fundamentally renovated.

On the cordoned-off Falkenbergsgatan, Liljevalch’s manager Mårten Castenfors welcomes the audience and is invited at 11 am on inauguration day. Cultural and urban environment mayor Jonas Naddebo and Housing and Real Estate Mayor Dennis Wedin as well as Stockholm City Property Director Anders Kindberg and architect Gert Wingårdh speak before it’s time for inauguration fanfare.
