Groundbreaking for KNG

In early September, the groundbreaking ceremony for Kristianstad Nya Galleria, designed by FOJAB Arkitekter, took place.

The mall is being built on the site of the current Domushuset and is part of the transformation of Kristianstad's city center. Parallel to the mall, both parking lots and housing will be built. The neighborhood feeling is maintained by giving the illusion of several separate buildings, and the color and shape of the facade will harmonize with the surrounding buildings. The mall will have space for shops, restaurants and cafés.

- "The interesting thing about Kristianstad Nya Galleria is that it is located right in the city center. This makes it attractive and strengthens the inner city as opposed to a more peripheral location," says Charlotte Kristensson, project responsible architect at FOJAB.

The mall is expected to be completed in the fall of 2014.
