Brotorget stands at the city’s heart, a place that caters both to the everyday and special events. Brotorget features an open and flexible area that hosts activities such as streetside markets, ice skating, performances, and events. The square is styled after aspects of the surrounding areas with a floor patterned in modern designs derived from regional traditions. It’s a floor that represents an identity and reflects the square’s significance as an important meeting place. The red stage is a crucial aspect of Brotorget and becomes a strong reference point. The stage is designed without a backside framed with graceful birch trees. The walls and roof are made of red tar in a shape that draws from the rolling mountainscape of Hälsingland. The timber floor of the stage works also as a sheltered place to sit. Integrated in the stage is a music system that can be controlled from your phone so that the stage can be a place to dance or hold spontaneous performances. The south side of the stage presents a sunny stairway where many can sit together. The stage is accessed from two points
