STPLN is housed in an old slipway where dry-docked large ships were once built and repaired.

The two-storey concrete structure is the last remaining of the seven original slipways in the Kockums industry area.  The house is divided into 2,000m2 of studios, workshop and event spaces between the main floor and basement. Since opening in 2011, STPLN has hosted thousands of events from small, intimate gatherings to vibrant live concerts. The house was designed to be constantly changing and modularly flexible, making it adaptable to countless kinds of settings and activities.
