Since their Stockholm opening in 2010, Fotografiska has established itself as a haven of innovation and free expression. Guided by the brand pillars of inclusion, inspiration, innovation, sustainability and relevance.
This historic landmark building was constructed originally as the Church Missions House in 1894 and has been transformed by award-winning architecture and interior design firm CetraRuddy who is leading the design and renovation of the building, with a view to bring life to Fotografiska’s core value of inspiring a more conscious world.
The design studio Roman and Williams will conceive the interior concept for the second-floor restaurant.
Technology consultancy Linq will be developing a tech-enhanced, multi-sensory journey for visitors to experience throughout the space. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners are consulting on the preservation and restoration elements of the historic property, such as the stained-glass windows on the second floor and the intricate limestone and granite façade.
When visiting and exploring the museum you will agree, that the architecture and design environment captures not only the spirit of Fotografiska but very strongly the character of New York City.
