    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. This, combined with the effervescent city life inside the moat, makes these premises entirely unique....

    Swedish Match

     Staff who enjoy their jobs feel great and stay in their jobs. This was particularly important to Swedish Match when its increased its production of snus (Swedish "snuff") required larger premises and it transferred its manufacturing arm from Gothenburg to Kungälv. A completely new facility gave the company the opportunity to create the perfect workplace, with high standards of hygiene, cleanliness and – last but not least – wellbeing. Each production unit was given its own colour and...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Juvelkvarnen

    The Juvelkvarnen area at the old Eriksberg shipyard is part of the municipality's conservation programme. Semrén & Månsson has been working on this project since the early 2000s, when the mill was shut down and a transformation began, turning the factory into homes. This initiative resulted in exciting apartments with thick walls made of solid brick. The mill began in 1914, when AB Mårten Perssons Valsqvarn constructed the first three buildings. These were taken over in 1925 by KF, which...

    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...

    Vintergatan

    The buildings in the new city block will make for an exciting new addition to the central parts of the picturesque and historically interesting stone-city Sundbyberg. The elevated and hilly plot is located to the East in a quiet area towards the end of Vintergatan. The mountainous landscape has been an asset since the terraced courtyards, and the pliable levelled buildings integrate the area's scale into a dynamic cityscape. Vintergatan merges the pulse of the city with the small town's charm...

    Kv Tullen 8

    The Tullen block is in a central location on the north side of Stortorget in Kungsbacka. The "Brända Tomten" (or Burnt Site), as it is known, has remained empty since the traditional old timber building "Gamla Gästis" burned down in 2006. After the fire, the office participated in a parallel commission for the private developer and since then has developed a detailed plan for the site. Building at Kungsbacka torg is a task which is both interesting and entails responsibility. We approached...

    Pagoden

    A protected tobacco warehouse and characteristic landmark was to be renovated to create modern offices covering a total area of 12 000 sq m. The original character of the building had to be retained while also allowing more light in and applying general sustainability features. In 2012, the renovated Pagoden was named one of the top two buildings in Gothenburg. Pagoden, which was originally designed by Cyrillus Johansson, is a clear example of 1920s building technology. This is a monumental...

    Avalon Hotel

    The detailed plan was formulated and the guidelines were drawn up in close cooperation with the City Construction Office for what would become Avalon Hotel. Semrén & Månsson participated from detailed planning to detailed design. Right from the outset, the goal was to create an extrovert and experimental building that united public content with an expressive exterior. The asymmetry of the tapered plot was picked up and can be seen throughout the entire hotel in the form of a "broken...
