Danish architecture firm schmidt hammer lassen architects has won a competition to design the congress and hotel centre on the central harbour front of Helsingborg in Sweden.

The practice won the competition in conjunction with Swedish developer Midroc and engineering / architecture consultants Sweco.

The scheme includes a 16,900m² congress and hotel facility and 17,100m of housing, which complements the ongoing development of the promenade running the length of the city waterfront.

The building is characterised by a deformation of the grid into a crystalline expression that has coined the nick name “The Salt Crystals”.

The congress and hotel centre joins to meet the apartment blocks which is separated by a small pedestrian street.

The apartments feature the salt crystal grid pattern, while the façades have a rectangular pattern to emphasise their open and light structure.

The two new structures also house cafes, shops, and several squares and green spaces.

The hotel’s façade is extended across the pavement of the plaza to the water’s edge connecting the vertical and horizontal surfaces.
