    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...

    Campus Haga Interior

    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...

    Biopalatset

    Our commission involved finding an appropriate location for Sandrew's new multiplex cinema in Gothenburg. A number of different places were examined, and eventually shopping centre which was turning over a poor profit was selected. Removing every other beam allowed the correct geometric conditions for cinemas to be achieved with ease. The large, glazed courtyard of the shopping centre was turned into a big, beautiful foyer as part of the project, a feature which would have been difficult to...

    Zelenogorsk

    The ambition of the principal for this project was to give the residents of the little spa town of Zelenogorsk a wonderful gift; a building that could benefit everyone and could stand for years without going over the top in terms of style or materials. After lots of trips with the programme, together with the opportunities offered by this site in its central location, a concept was formulated which involved shops, a supermarket, parking, cinemas and a restaurant, with a winter garden on the...

    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...

    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...

    Park Ostrowska

    Park Ostrowska is being constructed on a plateau just outside central Szczecin. This area will offer modern, exclusive apartments, a restaurant and a spa. Stage I, comprising 127 apartments, is already complete and most of the apartments are already sold. Semrén & Månsson have been commissioned to design and develop Stages II and III, involving the surrounding land and infrastructure. This commission will involve some 300 apartments in three and four-storey buildings.

    Gårda terrass

    Gårda Terrass is situated in an open location next to the Mölndalsån river. The nature of this area bears traces of the industrial era of Gothenburg. Over the last few decades, industry in the area has been replaced mainly by offices, but also with homes to an extent. The plan from the 1980s specified homes nearest to the Mölndalsån river and a row of blocks of offices and car parks as a screen against the traffic route. The housing situation of the 1980s, with surplus apartments and the...

An urban environment with a combination of homes, shops, a specialist centre and a new bus terminal will bring...

    Porslinsfabriken

    There was extensive discussion on how best to utilise the old porcelain factory in the future. A number of proposals have been compiled for the building and the rest of the site. The factory is of value as a industrial relic, and so the proposals have been based on preservation of the building to varying extents. The location in the city is attractive, close to Hjalmar Brantingplatsen and its services, shops and range of cultural features. The area is also directly next to Kvillebäcken. After...

    Kv Tennet

    Halfway between Lilla Bommen and Gasklockan is Gullbergsvass, an area which was originally an old sea bed. Quays and jetties were constructed over the years, and later on buildings appeared as well. The site on which this office block was constructed was underutilised previously, with a building on part of the site which was low in relation to the rest of the surrounding buildings. The new building is adapted to suit flexible office solutions. On occupation, however, one major tenant took up...

    Hageby Centrum

    Hageby Centrum is situated in the district of Hageby in the southern part of Norrköping. This centre was built in 1966 and was one of Sweden's first shopping centres. Hageby Centrum is owned by Steen & Ström Sverige AB. 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...

    Medicinareberget

    This project is a study for expansion of Medicinarberget's university-linked buildings down on Linnéplatsen. This will resolve part of the stalemate currently prevailing at Medicinarberget and permit a link down towards Linnéplatsen, Övre Husargatan, the School of Business, Economics and Law and other central university functions. There are major level differences on this particular site, which is why we are suggesting a "climbing" building with glazed spaces. These level differences can be...

    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...

    Östra Sannegården

    Östra Sannegården is a newly constructed residential area to the west of Lindholmen. The old quay is now mainly home to condominiums. We designed rented apartments for Familjebostäder in this area. These apartments have an open floor plan, with good contact with the outside world. In most of the apartments, the kitchen, dining area, living room and outdoor area form a single unit, with glass sections from floor to ceiling providing a minimal barrier to balconies and terraces. In most cases,...

    Brf Klätterträdet

    Semrén & Månsson continues its collaboration with Veidekke in the brown field area of Gothenburg called Kvillebäcken. The site of this project is in the best position of the entire area, adjacent to the creek park and very close to the center of Backaplan and all its communications. To give the residents of the house a unique feature we chose to design a building with a large, open terrace. Approx. half of the roof of the building is planned as a green terrace where the residents can...

    Blåsenhus

    In 2009, Akademiska hus and Uppsala University invited four offices to participate in a parallel commission for a new office and training building in Uppsala. One office from each Nordic country was invited. Semrén & Månsson was given the honour of representing Sweden. Our proposal is based on a semiotic analysis of the urban structure of Uppsala and will provide us with the foundation and revenue to build a tall structure, as tall as Carolina Rediviva nearby. The administration building...
