Clad in dark grey steel plates, Lecor‘s new HQ emphasizes the function of steel production. A glass box encased in a steel frame protrudes far over the façade. The first floor is dominated by a steel frame colored in pastel colors. The color motif continues on the second floor with a “matkuben” (dining cube) in a clear yellow color adjacent to a staff kitchen and dining area. The main conference bridge is enclosed by large glass partitions along three walls and offers a 270 degree view of the woods of Sweden.

The floor of the entrance hall is lined with black ceramic tiles. Some of the walls are draped in colors – the library is done in a muted shade of pink, while the changing rooms, showers, toilettes, pantries and kitchen are covered with ceramic tiles in pastel blue, green, light gray, pale yellow and white.
