“The new Polestar headquarters will be the heart and home of our growing team,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer of Polestar. “It is an architectural translation of what our brand stands for – it is pure and uncompromised. The open layout will serve as an inspiring and creative workspace for our rapidly-developing team of skilled co-workers. Moving to the Volvo Cars’ campus in Torslanda, in close proximity to our parent company, is also a key part of our close cooperation with them.”
The design of the interior and exterior has been completed by the renowned Swedish architects, Bornstein & Lyckefors, in close co-operation with Polestar.
“We have created an uncompromising and minimalistic ‘cube’ as the main feature of the building that, with its technical solutions and details, creates a clear link between architecture and modern product design,” said Per Bornstein of Bornstein & Lyckefors. “One of its unique design features is a white facade made entirely in glass that lets around 60% of the light through, a first in Sweden and a challenge both in terms of design and engineering, but completely in line with Polestar’s progressive approach.”
The new Polestar head office building consists of three levels and offers 3,800 square meters of office space and development area. It is suitable for up to 200 employees, allowing Polestar to grow from the 110 employees currently in Sweden. The new HQ will also have exhibition and display areas for a number of cars.
Construction is set for completion in September 2018.
