Temporary Market

The temporary market hall in Östermalm, Stockholm, is an indoor plaza that connects the surrounding streets and uses low cost and reusable materials for future repositioning.

When the historical Östermalm Market Hall built in 1888 was closed for renovation, the city of Stockholm committed the Swedish architecture firm Tengbom to create a temporary place to carry on the former market’s daily routine. The new structure will be dismantled and rebuilt somewhere else, once renovation is over. 

 

Market stalls, restaurants and storage are located on the ground floor, while kitchens and technical installations are located on the two mezzanines that stretch along the Northern and Southern facades. The market stalls are situated along wide, straight thoroughfares and the main entrance faces that of the old market hall on the edge of the square. With an entrance strategically located opposite, on each of the building’s four facades, the existing flow of pedestrian traffic is able to continue across the square through the Market Hall during opening hours.

The Temporary Market Hall brought new life to the area, even improving the businesses. The large scale structure is designed and built with a modular mounting system of steel brackets that enables quick erection and dismantling with the possibility for subsequent reuse and an alternative function at another location. The temporary building’s facade consists of a lower band clad in vertical untreated pine battens of varying size mounted on ply wood sheets. In the South West corner of the building and along the Eastern facade the wooden wall gives way to glazing, providing views into the Market Hall and views out for restaurant diners. The upper section of the facade is completely clad in a modular system of translucent multiwall polycarbonate sheeting, providing daylight during daytime and lights up during nighttime.
