Boxen, a new gallery space at ArkDes in Stockholm, is a robust machine for fast-changing, experimental exhibitions that the firm Dehlin Brattgård Arkitekter has designed.
The project provides a new piece of utilitarian architecture within the museum’s configuration of spaces. It is at the center of a temporary exhibition hall adjacent to the permanent exhibition, and announces itself ahead, from the main foyer.
The gallery-within-a-gallery is built with a steel structure that exposes itself externally, and a ramp skirts it in a cantilever, enabling visitors to contemplate the exhibits around from different vantage points. By means of this ramp, people become an integral part of Boxen’s external image. It begins at the main opening, passes by a viewing platform at a large circular opening to peer in through, and ends in a balcony that stretches the entire length of one of Boxen’s sides. From there, a hidden staircase leads back down to the surrounding preexisting hall.
