Polestar HQ coming up on Volvo ground

By CARSIFU | 12 February 2018

TORSLANDA (Sweden): Polestar has started building its new headquarters here on the same campus as the main Volvo Cars head offices and factory.

Construction of the new headquarters will be completed this September.

The design of the interior and exterior has been completed by the renowned Swedish architects, Bornstein & Lyckefors, in close co-operation with Polestar. The new Polestar head office building consists of three levels and offers 3,800 square metres of office space and development area for up to 200 employees, up from 110 Polestar employees today in Sweden, as well as exhibition and display areas for a number of cars.


”The new Polestar headquarters will be the heart and home of our growing team,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.

“The open layout will serve as an inspiring and creative workspace for our rapidly-developing team of skilled co-workers. Moving to the Volvo Cars’ campus in Torslanda, in close proximity to our parent company, is also a key part of our close cooperation with them.

“We have created an uncompromising and minimalistic ‘cube’ as the main feature of the building that, with its technical solutions and details, creates a clear link between architecture and modern product design,” said Per Bornstein of Bornstein & Lyckefors. “One of its unique design features is a white facade made entirely in glass that lets around 60% of the light through, a first in Sweden and a challenge both in terms of design and engineering, but completely in line with Polestar’s progressive approach.”
