Sara Cultural Centre – one of the world’s tallest timber building is located in Skellefteå, just below the Artic Circel in the northern Sweden. The building will be housing venues for arts, performance and meetings as well as a hotel.
In 2021, the gates will open to a unique and dynamic meeting point combining culture and entertainment with meetings, in direct connection with a new premium hotel, culinary experiences, spa and different scenes for events. Sara Cultural Centre will be known for its hospitality, its activities and its desire to think differently.
Skellefteå´s new cultural centre is a wood-constructed, climate-smart building that is good for both the environment and for those people using the venue. The 20-storey building is built largely from timber sourced from local forest reserves. Solar power cells and efficient energy use further help to minimize the house’s climate footprint.
Sara Cultural Centre will be a transformative building where open spaces inspire meetings between people. Here you are offered a unique meeting place in modern premises that exudes creativity and innovation. Social and cultural activities with a clear connection to the cultural centre are offered as a natural part of the meeting. The day can end with a relaxing break in the premium hotel’s spa, dinner in the restaurant with a panoramic view of Skellefteå and first-class accommodation.
