The Kulturkvarteret Örebro is the cultural heart of Örebro in Sweden.
The five-story building already houses the Örebro City Library, an art gallery, Kulturskolan, multiple stages, rehearsal spaces, and an art school specializing in music, dance and theatre.
Following a substantial audio upgrade, it is also the home to over 80 Genelec 4000 Series loudspeakers, spread throughout the building to complement a host of smart audio-visual technology.
The Kulturkvarteret Örebro is focused on enriching the lives of children and young people in the area through the arts, and is heavily utilized not only by students of the local Örebro University, but by the public as well. Genelec partnered with the systems integrator JML-System AB (now part of the Dustin Group) to elevate the audio experience across the whole development, who says Genelec’s combination of performance and sustainability fit the brief perfectly.
“It’s important to remember we are in an educational environment where the rooms are in constant use – so component quality, which directly affects durability and reliability, was a massive consideration,” explains Johan Ståhlgren, who was JML’s project leader. “Due to the cultural significance of the building to the local community, sustainability was a non-negotiable aspect of the project. Genelec excels in both these departments, making them a natural choice.”
With rooms ranging from large orchestral halls to small studios, the range of models in Genelec’s 4000 series made it easier to tailor to the needs of the room sizes and applications, while their active technology removed the need for external amplifiers, conserving rack space and reducing cabling.

Ståhlgren continues: “Due to its size, the 4010 is extremely versatile and can be integrated seamlessly anywhere. We opted for two of these in each of the smaller music rooms and conference rooms, while in the larger studios, conference rooms and rehearsal rooms, the 4020s made more sense. Six 4030s provide outstanding clarity and definition for the library area and one of the vocal studios, and the large format 4040 model provides impressive power and dynamic range, making it perfect for the dance studios where robust sound with extended low frequency response is essential. We also specified four additional 8050 studio loudspeakers for the largest dance studio.
“Considering the diverse disciplines and their distinct acoustic requirements in each room, the rear panel room compensation switches offer us significant control with just a flick of a switch during installation. This ensures that the loudspeakers are tailored to their environments, delivering pristine audio quality and saving us valuable time.
“All of them deliver exceptional performance, ensuring an immersive audio experience. What’s more, Genelec’s signature aesthetic design looks every bit as good as it sounds, and each cabinet is available in 120 different RAL colors, making it easy to blend with any interior.”
