Polestar is a new brand based on electricity combined with thoughtful design. They have established a new headquarters in Gothenburg’s Hisingen district for the company’s administration, design, and development teams.

Our brief was to be an independent project leader that could openly marshal a team of strong-willed players toward a shared goal that serves the interests of all stakeholders.
