New Gaming and Music Center Space Stockholm.

Contemporary digital culture center Space has announced its first-ever location at Sergels Torg in Stockholm. Set to open in 2021, Space is a new concept combining music, gaming and content creation under one roof.

Space Stockholm will feature games on ultra-modern gaming stations, music in the live arena, social gatherings and areas to create music, games, podcasts and more.

“At Space we strive to inspire and uplift communities, motivating the next generation. We aim to create a place for digital culture that connects human beings, a world where everyone can thrive in their creativity and have a stronger sense of belonging,” said CEO and co-founder of Space Gustav Käll.

The components of the Space concept include a gaming center, a multi-purpose arena, content creation and music studios, restaurants and cafes. The purpose of the venue is to enable high-profile events in the music, gaming and video creation community such as music performances, esports tournaments, game launch events and conferences.

Co-working space will be built into the concept over time, allowing for start-up companies to develop business models in close proximity to the audience.

“Space Stockholm, with its unique location at the heart of Sweden’s capital, is poised to become a cultural landmark -- not only for the city, but for the entire country. It promises a bright future for Sergels Torg by creating a modern, progressive hub for digital culture,” said Stockholm Mayor Anna König Jerlmyr in a release.

Space was founded by Käll, Lars Blomberg and former Universal Sweden executive Per Sundin, who collectively bring years of experience in gaming, music and media industries. The main investor is Pop House Sweden, where Swedish financier Conni Jonsson and ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus are majority owners.

“Sweden has a long history in leading tech and music innovations and providing a vibrant scene for the next generation. Space will serve as a leeway to transform culture and society at large, a place where beliefs, ideas and attitudes collide in a unifying force that will reset the status quo and transform tomorrow for generations to come,” said Sundin, who is also Pop House CEO, in a statement.
