    Stocksund

    At the request of Patriam, Semrén & Månsson has created 36 well-designed apartment, placed on a natural hillside in the middle of the residential district Stocksund, north of Stockholm. The two mirroring buildings are covered in grayish green slate which shades differ depending on weather, light and season. The railings and window sashes create a contrast with a warm, bronzy color that matches the shifting colors of the façade. The spacious stairway receives plenty of daylight, and the...

    KUNGSPORTSPLATSEN - OFFICE BLOCK

    The traditional old Hennigska Huset is situated in the heart of Gothenburg, near to the earlier Kungsporten. This building was erected in 1846 and designed by Carl Georg Brunius, and over the years it has been home to warehouses, shops of various kinds, homes and offices. The location is superb, overlooking the moat, Avenyn and Trädgårdsföreningen and up towards Lorensberg and Vasastaden.

    University of Borås

    This commission was won via a competitive process and a First Prize in 1999. We have worked in participation with MA Arkitekter of Borås during both the competition stage and the detailed design stage. The concept for the project, to link single buildings to form a composite unit, appeared to be successful and simple. This allowed the project to bring about major programmatic changes, such as removing a large auditorium and erecting a large library in its place. The division of the building...

    Kronhusgatan

    A seemingly deserted and fairly ugly blasted rock face used to be visible on Kronhusgatan in Västra Nordstaden. We started thinking about how we could enhance the value of the location from an urban construction standpoint. It would be possible to complete the beautiful urban space around Kronhuset and Kronhusbodarna by placing an angular building around the rock. This idea was developed together with SGS, Stiftelsen Göteborgs Studentbostäder, and the present solution was devised through a...

    Danska vägen

    Few people wanted to build rented apartments after the turn of the millennium, in a time characterised by recession and abolished state subsidies. At that time, Semrén & Månsson took the initiative to develop rented apartments under its own auspices, resulting in land allocation in the district of Lunden in Gothenburg. This land allocation, for around 200 apartments, required the project to be divided over a number of parties and so we looked for and concluded cooperation agreements with...

From the start, the office had been working to find opportunities to optimize the area and create a new expression in the middle of Gothenburg's historical gateway. At the same time as the establishment in the area around Drottningtorget was being discussed, the office was working with hotel Avalon. All...

    Campus Haga

    Campus Haga with the Faculty of Social Sciences is located in two blocks in the district of Haga. These buildings were erected in the early 1990s and designed by what is known as Hagagruppen, with Vallgatan and Wallinders Arkitektkontor. At that time, the buildings were planned with vertical communication, with a stairwell for each institution. As part of the renovation project, this has been altered to provide more horizontal communication between areas. Semrén & Månsson has worked with...

Our aim is to make Villa Beyer into a lively, functioning home by developing this 1920s villa, turning it into a modern place to live where the materials and floor plans meet contemporary requirements. Surrounded by strong stone walls...

    Riksbanken

    The department branch of Riksbanken, with representative bank premises on Hamngatan, was constructed at Hamnkanalen in 1889. The premises underwent extensive renovation over the years until Riksbanken left the building for good in the mid-1990s. Semrén & Månsson began extensive work in which the property was refined and restored in order to regain its original appearance. The outbuildings on Drottninggatan were demolished to make way for a modern office block, which with its open nature...

    Magasinet

    Semrén & Månsson has worked on the city block Juvelkvarnen in Eriksberg since the early 2000’s. A transformational process was initiated when the former industrial site was to be redesigned to residential housing. Two of the grand brick buildings, ’Kvarnen’ and ’Silon,’ originally designed by the city architect Per Lennart Håkansson, has already been re-designed and turned into apartments. The early 1900’s warehouse 'Magasinet' is the final building that is now being...

    Borås University Library

    Sweden offers a course for librarians which is held at the University of Borås. This is why a particularly large amount of time and effort has been devoted to the programmatic and ideological issues relating to this library project. In terms of structure, this library will follow the concept of multiple geometric, well defined buildings linked together. The library will also constitute the façade of Allégatan and the end of it at Högskoleplatsen. The public area will flow into the entrance...
