The Rosersberg Palace Park in Sweden now holds a new weather shelter for the Swedish Police Force’s K-9 Unit , providing a protected space for canine training on the listed heritage site.

 The Dressyrhallen Training Hall is constructed of cross-laminated timber mounted on a standard glulam frame (All images are credited to Peder Lindbom)

The surrounding site has a long tradition of education and training, from the 1860s with the Infantry's shooting school and then the Civil Defense Academy and the Rescue Administration. For two years, the Police Office in Stockholm County has established itself in the area.

The starting point for the proposed hall was to use massive wooden elements of cross-laminated timber mounted on a standard glulam frame resulting in an economical and rational construction.. The woodworking elements was developed together with the contractor.

With an exterior roof of dark grey roofing felt and a yellow ochre sliding door as the only colour accent,  the building has an architectural edge.
