    Filmhuset Facklan Interior

    The authentic wooden buildings around Stortorget in Kungsbacka were supplemented in 1964 with a modern, yellow brick building with large glass panels – the Domus department store. When Domus moved in the 1980s, the building was renovated and extended so that the Post Office could move in. The building was plastered, and the expanses of glass facing the square were reduced. The Post Office has now moved as well, and we are filling the premises with a cinema and a café. The building has now...

    Ullstorp

    Ullstorp is situated to the north-west of Kungälv. This area is characterised by open agricultural land surrounded by dense forest. The most important foundation was to consolidate the natural values, even after development, and to use the new community structure to develop the identity of Ullstorp. We have formulated four basic principles for this commission: - For the primary traffic system to be laid in a traditional manner at the edge of the forest. - For the new garden town to focus on...

They are now investing in renovation and extension work to make Hageby Centrum the biggest, most modern shopping centre in Östergötland, with more than 100 shops. This is twice the current number. This shopping centre is in a very strategic location at the point where...

    Ateljéhus Klippan

    The Klippan Cultural Reserve is situated to the west, adjacent to the bridgehead of the Älvsborgsbron bridge. This area is utilitarian in nature, with tall brick buildings and steep tiled roofs. Klippan is part of a walking and recreation route extended from Nya Varvet to the west, via Rosenlund and on to Lilla Bommen in the city centre. These condominiums have been designed for Klippans Kulturfastigheter and are situated between the ruins of the old Älvsborg fortress and Oscarsleden. These...

    Nynäshamn

    We are working on behalf of the municipality of Nynäshamn to compile a proposal for a new structural plan for central Nynäshamn. At the heart of this project is the establishment of a central route through the centre and on down towards the water which will provide spaces for town squares, businesses and a new station building for commuter rail services. Putting residential and public buildings closer together in a clear yet also broken fractured district structure will bring the town closer...

    Pedagogen Park

    Pedagogen, the old teacher training college in Mölndal, has been standing empty since the college moved to new premises in central Gothenburg. Semrén & Månsson was commissioned to adapt the building both inside and out in order to accommodate various activities, such as educational activities, services and offices. This building, which is now a single large-scale building, will be divided up into two blocks with a new entrance corridor between the blocks. New entrances will be...

    Landvetter air hotel

    A four-star hotel project involving around 170 hotel rooms is being designed in close cooperation with LV Landvetter Airport. This building will mark the entrance to the site and is intended to function as an effective landmark, regardless of whether people arrive by air or by road. With its direct proximity to the terminals, the hotel is intended to provide an international meeting point as well as acting as a place to stay. This hotel will also be home to modern conference facilities and a...

    Magasinet

    Ever since the beginning of the 21th century, Semrén & Månsson has been working with the area called Juvelkvarnen where old buildings from the mill industry were about to be transformed to host apartments. The warehouse Magasinet, drawn by city architect Per Lennart Håkansson, from the beginning of the 20th century, was the last of three historical buildings to be transformed. Originally, the idea was to maintain the existing building and repair and refurbish the facades. However, this...

    Brf Götheborg

    Brf Götheborg is a small housing cooperative surrounded by water on three sides, at the far end of Eriksberg Dock. The counterpart of this six-storey tower block is situated on the other side of the dock, and these two buildings are referred to as "the port buildings" in the design programme for the City Planning Department. Walled gardens next to the water can also be found here. The garden at Brf Götheborg has a Chinese theme and still includes plants from the original garden that was in...

    Neva Park

    When we were commissioned to create an urban plan for the 10 ha of space in Rybatskoe on the banks of the Neva river, we wanted to create an area with lots of variation despite its large scale, and with a theme indicating that everyone could enjoy the good life. It was all a matter of building a new way of life here! There is major emphasis on people and clear qualities in the local area. People enter the area via a magnificent gateway between tall character buildings and then enter the large...

    Clarion Hotel Post Interior

    The transformation of Centralposthuset into a major high-class hotel will develop the area around Drottningtorget in a positive and substantial way in future. This project came into being as a result of a discussion with construction company PEAB, which in turn had been asked to assist in the establishment of a major new Choice group hotel. When asked what an appropriate location would be, the central station was mentioned – "but there's no space free round there". We were working on Hotel...

    Mölndals accident & emergency department

    The Mölndal Accident & Emergency Department specialises in orthopaedics and medicine and operates 24 hours a day. This commission involved complete renovation while the department continued to operate, which placed considerable demands on planning and execution. Our approach worked so well that it has become a model which other accident and emergency departments are emulating. An increase in patient numbers demanded greater capacity and efficiency in order to bring down waiting times. Our...

    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...

    Coreworkers

    Coreworkers is a communication and media agency that works with Employer Branding, Employee Engagement, and Talent Sourcing. Therefore, it was important to focus on the needs of Coreworkers' employees when Semrén & Månsson got the commission to come up with the tenant improvements in Coreworkers' office in the area of Östermalm in Stockholm. Since the project had a small budget, it was crucial to concentrate on the most important things. The demand for quiet rooms and smaller-sized...

    Mölnlycke Centrum

    Mölnlycke Centrum is in an outstanding location in the municipality of Härryda, between Gothenburg and Landvetter. This area has undergone very rapid development of late, and its growth is expected to continue in years to come as well. Semrén & Månsson has devised a proposal for consolidation of Mölnlycke Centrum via a parallel contract. In the first phase, a route in a north-south direction will be devised which passes through central Mölnlycke, with buildings at either end for...

    Department of Psychology

    The Department of Psychology is set in a beautiful location at the slope down towards Linnéplatsen, where thousands of Gothenburg residents encounter the inner city every morning. The role of this building is to provide the department with plenty of space for its undergraduate programmes, research, some clinical activities, a library and administration, as well to create a social context for activities. In the centre of the building is a very large, unifying "living room" with a rest area and...

    Sigtuna Stadshotell

    Sigtuna Stadshotell was built in 1909, with an architecture considered to be modern and forward-thinking in those days. Our commission for the project was to resolve the complex task for designing the exterior of a new building in a complex historical and cultural situation. We have chosen to approach this complex task on the basis of modern, contemporary architecture. This new building is over two floors towards the Museum, but there is an extra floor towards the water, where the topography...
