Stockholms Auktionsverk commits to Sickla - Atrium Ljungberg

Stockholms Auktionsverk commits to Sickla

Atrium Ljungberg has signed a lease contract with Stockholms Auktionsverk, which is moving its operations to Sickla. The contract comprises more than 1,700 m[2] in the old EXPO building in the heart of Sickla. This move further strengthens Sickla's position within sustainability and reuse.

Stockholms Auktionsverk is the oldest auction house in the world. In 2024, it will celebrate its 350th anniversary – which also means that the auction house has been selling Baroque, Rococo and Gustavian items since they were contemporary. Its list of customers features names such as King Karl XI, King Gustav III, Carl Michael Bellman, August Strindberg and Selma Lagerlöf.

Today, Stockholms Auktionsverk arranges both hammer and online auctions – as one of the leading auction houses in the Nordics for art, design, applied art, antiques and books. With ten branches in Sweden, Finland and Germany, over 60 experienced specialists, and more than 700,000 registered buyers in 180 countries, the company continues to serve as a stock exchange trading floor for Swedish and international cultural history – today as a leading Nordic marketplace for art, applied art and antiques. Stockholms Auktionsverk has been owned by Auctionet since 2021.

“After a long search, we have now landed in Sickla, a location that perfectly suits us and our business. This is a design and culture district where our clientèle are highly present, and our operations will now even more come into their own. Not to mention in a beautiful setting where the property owner Atrium Ljungberg cared for and preserved many of the architecture’s original character and details. On this point we and our new landlord find strong common ground,” says Stockholms Auktionsverk’s Head of Operations Johanna Casselbrant.

Stockholms Auktionsverk has ten branches in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Helsingborg, Helsinki, Hamburg, Cologne and Düsseldorf. In conjunction with the move, Stockholms Auktionsverk Globen will change its name to Stockholms Auktionsverk Sickla. It will open its doors in Sickla at the beginning of 2024 in the historical EXPO building where Atlas Copco once exhibited its innovations to the world. 

“We are very pleased that Stockholms Auktionsverk is choosing Sickla and Atrium Ljungberg. This marks a fantastic addition to Sickla’s already broad offering, where design, history, sustainability and reuse now take on an entirely new dimension,” says Property Manager Mikael Gillerlöv from Atrium Ljungberg in Sickla.

Atrium Ljungberg has transformed Sickla over a period of twenty years from an industrial area to a vibrant city district through a mix of workplaces, housing, schools, retail, culture and health. Sickla is already today host to 400 companies and 8,000 workers. The next step in the area’s development will begin in 2025 with Stockholm Wood City, which will be the largest urban development project in wood in the world. Covering 250,000 m2, 25 blocks and 30 buildings, Stockholm Wood City will offer an additional 7,000 office workplaces and 2,000 apartments just in time for the planned completion of the new metro line to Sickla.
