About GotlandsHem HQ
An international collaboration between Waugh Thistleton Architects, In Praise of Shadows, and Land Arkitektur has won a 2020 competition to design the new head office for GotlandsHem, the national housing association of the Swedish island of Gotland. The HQ will be a multifunctional place that provides a peaceful hub accessible not only to businesses but the whole community.
