It is named after 16th century King Gustav I of Sweden. The church was designed in the Baroque Revival style by architect Agi Lindegren. The church is located between two busy avenues partially lined with trees. The dome of the church rises 60 metres (200 ft) above the nearby Odenplan plaza. The floor plan is in the shape of a Greek cross. The church seats 1,500 people. The seating capacity makes it one of the larger churches in Stockholm.
