Aggerudsvikarna

Inspired by the traditional Swedish villas, we have designed 33 modern wooden terraced houses in the center of Karlskoga. With the idyllic Möckeln Lake in the front garden and the city in the backyard, Aggerudvikarna will form an optimal and unique setting for an eventful everyday life filled with light, air, and life. Reinterprets the traditional villaWith Aggerudvirkarna, we are developing 33 terraced houses in varying scales and shapes. With its green wood panels and sloping metal roofs, Aggerudvikarna reinterprets the city's traditional residential areas in a new and modern silhouette. Deliberate displacements and indented terraces give the terraced houses a dynamic structure that at the same time creates niches where the resident... More

A Swedish square’s award-winning transformation

Eslöv’s central square is quite large (115 x 65 metres) for a Swedish town of just 30,000 inhabitants. Once perceived as rather empty and desolate, the square recently underwent a complete transformation. Thanks to the playful design and layout by Sydväst arkitektur och landskap, Stora Torg (Main Square) now exudes a welcoming and pleasant ambience while retaining sufficient space for markets and events.In autumn 2017, the Malmö-based landscape architecture firm Sydväst won the Eslöv municipal tender for the redesign of this important city square. In the spring of 2021, the new Stora Torg was officially opened.Eslöv’s rural setting and historic heritage have been directly referenced in the design. T... More

Clarion Hotel Post

Architects Semrén & Månsson’s deceptively simple strategy in designing the Clarion Hotel Post was to close up the gap in the original building’s horseshoe-shaped plan with a new intervention. This comprises of one wing clad in patinated copper, the other slate – both materials used on the old Post Office roof. Where the wings meet, they rise up together as a pair of monolithic forms separated by a vertical sliver of glass. The resulting 13-storey tower creates a new landmark for the city. The architects selected three different copper surfaces. As well as the solid patina colour, ‘living’ surfaces provide various intensities of patina flecks revealing some of the dark oxidised background... More

Royal Design

Within its shopping centre location the ‘Royal Design’ project is insular but surrounded by many larger and taller buildings. Our design concept aims to create contrast and respond powerfully to these surroundings. Because of the central location of the building, the key consideration was that all sides of the scheme matter: walking around the building will reveal different architectural experiences, ranging from minimalistic façades to complex architectural forms. The parking lot frontage is open with extensive glazing in black frames following the sharp angles. The side elevations are calmer but still exciting with irregular windows continuing the black edged theme. All the facades and sloping roofs are clad in golden... More

We have also focused on highlighting the county´s  tile manufacturing heritage, expressed in the use of locally connected CC Höganäs tiles in the building´s bathrooms. The Lärkgatan preschool project meets the standards of Swedish environmental certification Miljöbyggnad Silver, calling for high performance solutions in ventilation and... More

STADSHAGEN - housing IN SOLID WOOD FOR FOLKHEM

WAN Future Projects Residential Award, 1st prize.Stadshagen, StockholmIn Stadshagen, close to one of the highest points in Stockholm, the existing built environment is to be supplemented and a new district developed. The new district ends in a steep slope down towards Karlbergskanalen. At the edge of this slope we have designed two buildings for Folkhem, which in many respects exists on the boundary between city and nature.The buildings are clearly divided into two parts, with a base of light concrete and an upper massive wooden volume. Along the new street, the buildings stand in an urban context. In the buildings' ground floors the concrete plinth is modeled and creates generous storefronts that open onto small square formations, which be... More

From the floor a constellation of solid volumes rise up to lift the room underneath the massive, reed-covered roof just above the horizon.The interstitial spaces created between the floor, the roof and the volumes open onto the surrounding nature, transmit light and provide visibility through towards the horizon. The activity of the marine educational center unfold for anyone who dwells on the shore, while at the same time this activity fr... More
