Palatial office space dating from the late 1960s in a fine location close to the sports field at Gärdet is being transformed into 109 delightfully modern homes after comprehensive renovation and expansion. The building at Sandhamnsgatan 55 is divided into wings with a long entrance building in the middle. We took all the qualities of the existing building and designed extensions to produce an apartment block with the impression of a cohesive whole. The office character has been dispensed with and replaced by a monumental simplicity: urban modernism that merges into the surrounding architecture. Quite simply, homes that are a delight to live in that you’ll feel proud to own. With an eye on the quiet location close to the wide-ranging greenery of Gärdet, it was natural to give the building spacious new balconies. We also added large glazed sections that not only deliver plenty of natural light, they also reinforce the feeling of house and home.
