The Hive

From restaurant to holistic experience

On behalf of Volvo Cars, Tengbom has developed and transformed the staff restaurant in Torslanda to become a contemporary place for meetings between people, food cultures, and landscapes.

The HiveThe interior architects Lisa Wingård, Karin Gullbrantz and Anders Löwander have enabled better utilisation of space, which means that the 2,200 square metres that were previously used a few hours a day are now a crowded place where spontaneous meetings happen continuously throughout the working day.The HiveOne of the challenges with The Hive was to create an interior environment that corresponded and was consistent with the company’s brand and identity. The concept was then interpreted through the various scenes of the Swedish landscape presented. The choice to make a so-called food court for an exclusive group makes the project unique.The HiveThe HiveFor Tengbom, the assignment began by redecorating the catering kitchen inside the restaurant, about 650 square metres of industrial kitchen space.
