House of Sweden opens a store in Washington D.C. and simultaneously launches a new website: www.houseofsweden.com.
The first House of Sweden, or Sverigehus, has been opened abroad, with the Swedish embassy and The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise all under the same roof. The building houses a new Swedish arena in USA - a different kind of embassy building with offices, 19 apartments and an Event Center in the same building. The House of Sweden was opened October 23, 2006, by senior members of the Swedish Royal family.
The house has a new online presence with its website www.houseofsweden.com. The website has been built by Funka Nu in cooperation with the design house, Volt. The website was commissioned by the Swedish National Property Board (SFV), who also owns the building. It was important for SFV to unite the strict look and feel from Volt with good accessibility.
"It was natural for us that the website should be accessible and built according to modern standards. It also reflects how we work with our properties. We opted for Funka Nu, as we knew that they were competent in the field of accessibility. We had previously had a good experience with them when working on our own website", says Sofia Meurk at SFV.
