    Klippan homes

    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...

    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...

    Åby Travbana

    Åbytravet is the second biggest trotting track in Sweden. When the old "Stallbacken" was demolished to make way for new homes, this created a completely unique facility for harness racing. The former outdoor gallery has made way for a guest paddock 6800 m2 in area, with associated spaces. As well as stables to accommodate 180 horses, the project included areas such as a stable café, space for A and B-class trainers, sign-on rooms, changing facilities, etc. A large number of exclusive lodges...

    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...

    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...

    Art Clinic

    After winning a parallel assignment to design a private hospital clinic in 2007, the project has moved on to an existing zoning assignment where Semrén & Månsson assist the property owner. The property is located in the district Johanneberg that is of national interest. The corner plot at Eklanda Street/ Gibraltar Street has long been unused and is at the boundary between Johanneberg's classic tall functionalist building and the older residential city. The surrounding area is under...

    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...

    Avalon Hotel Interior

    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...

    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...
