Wrapped entirely in a cloak of glass, Victoria Tower stands like a lighthouse along the road between downtown Stockholm and the city’s airport. The 117.6-meter tower is marker for the Kista IT office park and for the conference center at the base of the tower, and a manifestation of the area’s high-tech profile.

At the base of the slender tower is a broad podium that includes a restaurant, conference area, and more. The parallelogram form of the tower is topped by a rectangular parallelepiped, so that the upper floors project out beyond the shaft below. An irregular arrangement of metal-colored triangular panes of glass gives the façade its character.

It incorporates eight different types of glass distributed randomly over the surface so that no regular pattern can be detected. Thin layers of metal oxide have been used to give the panes the insulating and solar shading attributes the situation demands.

With thirty-four stories, Victoria Tower is one of the tallest buildings in Stockholm. Twenty-two of its floors are occupied by a 229-room hotel, the rest by offices, conference facilities, and a sky bar. In response to a request from the client, Arthur Buchard, the lobby, conferences spaces, sky bar, and hotel rooms have all been designed with furniture from Vitra.
