Uppsala University is the oldest university in the Nordic region with 45,000 students and is an international workplace dedicated to world-class research and education. Segerstedthuset by 3XN is a multi-purpose extension to the University. The building is a modern workplace for researchers, university administration and management as well as an integral part of the campus. It is designed to become an obvious meeting place for students and the ground floor holds a restaurant that can be open to the public outside of normal working hours and provide an attractive place for residents of the City of Uppsala, activating the campus all day long.
“The good cooperation between Akademiska Hus, 3XN and NCC has created the right conditions for creating a wonderful building for the university’s administration.”
Ove Eriksson, Project Manager at Akademiska Hus
The location of Segerstedthuset puts high demand on the building’s design and how it relates to its surroundings; the bastion, the castle, the castle park, the botanical garden and the city. It has been extremely important for 3XN and for the Client in the design process to work very thoroughly with analyzing the space and the location of the new building in order to create a building that contributes with a distinct modern form and respectfully adapts to the sensitive area.
The straightforward concept consists of two U-shaped, overlapping office wings resulting in an open atrium that unites the building and optimises views and daylight conditions inside the building. Adapting the new facility to the surrounding historical city was carried out through a rigorous process of adding staggered volumes onto the primary volume and “cutting” corners according to surrounding structures, resulting in a dynamic and edgy volume that “cuts” through the sloping natural landscape.
The building is designed with a particular focus on public spaces and connections. The house spreads out and creates a sequence of three cohesive public spaces; the entrance area in front of the building, an inner space in the building’s ground floor, for exhibitions, information, and events, as well as a park with outdoor seating in the sun that connects the city to the campus. Visitors from all over the city can visit the restaurant on the building’s ground floor, and students and staff can walk through the building on their way to and from the rest of the campus facilities.
“It has been crucial for us and for Akademiska Hus in the design process to work very thoroughly with analyzing the space and the location of the new building to create a structure that contributes to a distinctly modern form and respectfully adapts to the sensitive area.”
Jan Ammundsen, Senior Partner and Head of Design at 3XN Architects
The building is located in the heart of Uppsala’s historic center, and it was critical to both the client and the city that the new facility be integrated into its context in a way that is respectful to the the character and scale of the adjacent bastion, castle, castle park, botanical garden and city. At the same time, it announces the building as a modern and contemporary extension to the context. From a distance, the building takes the shape of a rock formation. The shape is both light and varied due to the displaced volumes, the horizontal lines and a glass band that runs around the building and “separates” the top from the bottom.
Once in the building, one encounters a full-height atrium, bedecked with large windows through which natural light pours in, and with a sculptural four-part beechwood staircase spiraling through the space. The atrium acts as the heart of the building, with the staircase functioning as the main artery and several informal spaces for stay and socializing distributed around the space. The wooden staircase brings not only warmth to the atrium but animates the entire space vertically. A separate staircase connects the two lower levels where the entrances are located, allowing easy passage through the building for passers-by. This is lined with a vertical garden, created by Stockholm specialist Green Fortune, further blurring the boundaries of outer and inner space.
The triangular form of Segerstedthuset provides very efficient and flexible floorplates, and the building is constructed with as few columns as possible to create maximum flexibility. The design of the floorplates gives a dynamic variation to the whole building. The open spaces increase the experience of being a part of the same environment, while the small and large plazas create the feelings of intimacy and community. The design echoes today’s modern and transparent working and research environments with many types of environments suitable for different users and activities.
Some employees work in the large open room alongside others who prefer this kind of working space. Not because they necessarily talk much during the day, but they enjoy the company and the occasional friendly remarks. Others are camped out in a lounge chair with their laptop, smartphone, notes and a bottle of mineral water. Others again are talking in the tiniest meeting room one can imagine; not much bigger than a compartment in a commuter train – but perfect for individual focus and study.
Materials like the façade’s bright natural stone, other coloring and angles play along with and enhance the experience of the materiality of the existing historical buildings, and the color scheme for the facade matches the pavement surrounding the landscape around the building.

Colourful Artwork Donated by Statens Konstråd
综合的艺术装置为建筑创造了强烈的个性，并有助于场所的创造。3XN与瑞典公共艺术机构Statens Konstrad合作，委托美国艺术家斯宾塞·芬奇(Spencer Finch)设计了一种名为“彩轮”(Color Wheel)的旋转门(每个入口各有一扇)。当门转动时，玻璃重叠在一起创造出几乎无限的色彩组合。这是对知识无止境的追求，也是对校园社区和外来游客的一种精彩诱惑。在晚上，彩色入口成为统一校园的当代干预。
The integrated art installation creates a strong identity to the building and contributes to the place making. 3XN worked with Statens Konstråd, Sweden’s public art agency, to commission Color Wheel, a set of revolving doors (one at each entrance) with multicolour glass panels by American artist Spencer Finch. As the doors turn, the glass overlaps to create virtually infinite colour combinations. It is an allusion to the endless quest for knowledge, but also a brilliant lure for the campus community and external visitors alike. In the evening, the coloured entrances become contemporary interventions that unifies the campus.
“There were many changes to the project in the process, which meant that the building was continuously improved. The consultants were good at accommodating the changes during the process, and 3XN architects have made a great effort to meet the evolving requirements. Segerstedthuset has been an incredibly entertaining and educative project to be part of.”Christina Lundberg, Project Manager from the Architektgruppen in Gävle
Indicum was responsible for the interior, and worked really closely with 3XN on all aspects of the design and detailing.
An essential part of Swedish working culture is “Fika” – meaning “to have coffee”. These coffee stations are strategically located all around the building on each floor and is a vital part of the employees social space.
