The tower will be situated on Lindholmen, and with its 73 floors, it will estimate a total height of 245 meters.

    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....

Tradetech offers expertise and tailored services within the financial sector and wanted a work environment with focus on functionality and transparency with possibilities for privacy.

    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...

The hotel will be right next door to The Nordic Watercolor Museum and is planned to include a spa, conference facilities, and a restaurant.

The design is inspired by the history of Skärhamn and its...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Villa Beyer

    Work on Villa Beyer provides Semrén & Månsson with a fantastic opportunity to bring back to life a unique Gothenburg building from its long sleep. We are recreating a classic villa in the "Lorensberg villa town" literally a stone's throw from Götaplatsen. 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...

    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...

    Klippan offices

    Near the southern bridgehead of the Älvsborgsbron bridge lies the district of Klippan, an area characterised by old industrial buildings which have now been converted into offices, homes and hotels to a greater or a lesser extent. Although this area is a cultural reserve, Klippan kulturfastigheter – owner of the buildings – wanted to continue developing and consolidating the area. Semrén & Månsson was commissioned to design an office block which was also intended to act as a point of...

    New Hovås

    In September 2010, Semrén & Månsson was invited to attend a workshop relating to the development of the area around Brottkärrsmotet. The proposal focuses on the express ambition of the in-depth overview plan to develop the area around the Origo building – what used to be the Kodak building – to provide a new local centre for the districts of Askim and Hovås. The conditions are favourable as effective trading is already established in the area. Adding new types of homes which are not...

    Kv Masten

    The Masten housing cooperative is located in Eriksberg but is just 200 metres from the edge of the quay. The buildings are austere yet playful. The two buildings are in contrasting colours and have irregular window placements. The balconies with their transparent fronts are freely located and face the mountain. The coloured tones are derived from the surrounding area. This building has a welcoming entrance which resembles a kind of lobby. People can meet their neighbours, pick up their post and...

Ecologically, socially and economically. This is a historically significant environment which can bring a new, unique dimension to Mölnlycke and its residents. This vision has three interacting main elements. The Mölnlycke fabriker factory environment will be refined, developed and supplemented with homes,...

    Akademiska hus

    The group executive of Akademiska Hus has been renting premises in a central location at Polhemsplatsen in Gothenburg for a long time. The need for expansion plus a desire to refurbish the public areas heralded the start of the office's proposals for renovation. With a relatively tight budgetary framework as one of our starting points, we focused on creating new spaces for meetings, both customer-related meetings and also spontaneous office meetings. White walls in the offices contrast with the...

    Earth Science Centre

    The Earth Science Centre is a project for which we have been responsible from detailed planning through to construction follow-up. This project is characterised by sharp differences in levels, which has led to the building having three entrances on three different levels. These have been combined by an internal, climate-protected zone populated by both staff and students. The buildings are organised so that elementary education takes place on the lower floor, with research and administration...

Once completed the hospital will include modern care facilities focusing on geriatric and other specialized somatic care, as well as a specialist center designed to support the geriatric care unit. The main thought with the design is for the hospital to blend in with the surrounding nature, with...

    Brf Sjöhamnen

    Klippan is a very special area of Gothenburg that has several qualities for both residents and visitors. Recently a number of interesting new construction projects have contributed to making Klippan a good, modern and attractive residential area. We hope and believe that this project for KB Majorna can further develop and enhance this development. Fundamental preconditions of the project have been to create a large number of apartments, of different sizes and types, to reach a mixed composition...
