About Us

In 2012, the wholly owned limited liability company Nobelhuset AB was established by the Nobel Foundation Rights Association for the purpose of creating a Nobel Center. The objective of the company Nobelhuset AB is to plan, construct, own, manage and develop the Nobel Center, a building for cultural and scientific activities on the Blasieholmen peninsula in central Stockholm, and to carry out related activities.

During the autumn of 2012 a process for selecting an architect for Nobel Center was initiated. For this purpose an international architectural competition was launched during 2013, led by an appointed jury and a competition secretariat within Nobelhuset AB. Since the completion of the competition and the winner (David Chipperfield and Christoph Felger from David Chipperfield Architects Berlin) was announced on April 9, 2014, the project is now proceeding with further programming, planning and business planning regarding the future content of the Nobel Center. We are also pursuing a close dialogue with the City of Stockholm concerning the development of a new local plan for the Nobel Center on the Blasieholmen peninsula.
