In a report on P4 Örebro, we share more about our new proposal for the Kornboden block in Örebro. Architecturally, the building aims to serve as a link to the former 1850s structure that has burned down, while also concluding the neighborhood within the scale permitted by the current city plan from 1884. Listen [here].

"Designing architecture and living environments that give back to the place!"
Last week, ArkDes released the report 'Sustainability, quality, and economics' as part of the annual follow-up of Politik för Gestaltad Livsmiljö. We are very happy to be part of this ambitious report. Read it here.


We are really happy to announce that Kv Jakob Mindre is a nominee for Guldstolen 2023!

From the jury’s motivation ”The interior takes its starting point from the existing. The two atriums now share a common hub; entrance and lounge at the bottom, open at the top. The green wall extends along the four floors. Two bridges with wooden interiors connect the upper floors. The exteriors are mirror-like and create a visual illusion where the volumes are emphasized without dominating. It’s ingenious, skillful, and adds excitement. The project is based on close collaboration between the interior designer and architect, who together have created a cohesive whole. Beautifully executed, the interior is elevated to a higher level here.”

Many thanks to Axfast, Boston Consulting Group, Anderwald Studio and everyone else involved in the project. Photo Johan Fowelin.

__Västerås City Library (Children’s Department) is nominated for the ’Architecture Prize in Västmanland 2024’! __From the jury motivation
”With inspiration from the building’s history, the interior designers have decorated the children’s department with textiles, materials, color scheme and site-built furniture and created a magical fairytale forest that awakens a desire to read and stimulates the imagination of both young and old. An accessible and welcoming environment – ​​well worth an architecture award.” Read more here.

Don't miss tomorrow's talk about the aesthetics of re-use and the post-industrial heritage. Through Sveriges Arkitekter Skåne, we look forward to give a perspective on the subject with Hanne Birk from Varvsstaden and explore the opportunities and difficulties we have faced in the project 'Lund University's Art Campus' within the topic. No pre-registration required - welcome! More info here.


Kungsparken care home won Vårdbyggnadspriset 2023 in the category 'Room for care'. We are so happy and proud. Many thanks to Forum Vårdbyggnad. Many thanks to Länsgården fastigheter, Kumla kommun, SP Landskapsarkitekter och OBK Sverige for a good collaboration.


Green Roof Park with a View of Stockholm! The project we have designed together with Karavan Landskapsarkitekter is completed. Thank you Johan Fowelin for beautiful photos. Read more about the project here.


Kungsparken is a finalist in Vårdbyggnadspriset 2023! The nominee has an exciting situation plan and fantastic empathy with high ambitions from the client, architect and operator. The site calls for a expressive but clear building and it has got that, with beautiful materials that interacts with the adjacent shoe factory; the brick's masonry pattern and decor take inspiration from slippers made in the factory. The same pattern is taken up in the details of the interior with great care and consistency. The apartments are functional with views and in Kungsparken there is closeness to community, privacy and the opportunity to stay outdoors. An accommodation that is well thought out from the first detail to the last solution." Read more here.

Sergelhuset has been longlisted for the @dezeen awards 2023 in the category “mixed-use projects”.
"In our proposal to redesign the complex, we emphasize visual connectivity and a differentiated program, a mix of housing, retail, restaurants and offices, in an effort to turn today's anonymous Malmskillnadsgatan into an inviting street for the city's residents and visitors."

More info through here.


September sun in our office!

How is the designed environment in care homes used and experienced in relation to the architects original intentions? We are very happy that we can delve into this question among other relevant ones, because we have been granted research funds from ARQ forskning. Above recent images of our project ’the Gardens care home’ which was completed in 2018.


Learn more about our projects the Pavilion, Naturum Trollskogen, Strömkajen and Hjorthägn!

As part of the installation ’Arbete Pågår’ at Arkdes, co-founders Katarina and Pye tell more about the architectural process behind the projects - with the physical model as an important tool. The exhibition is open until 27th of August. Have a visit! Production ArkDes och Ferhango Film & Arts


We came back to the office and our material library looked like this!

Site visit with the office! Our refurbishment and transformation project of Kv Jakob Mindre, a blue- and green-classified building next to Gustav Adolfs Torg, will soon be completed! Always exciting and stimulating to visit a project that so many of us have worked on. More information about the project is coming soon, stay tuned! On behalf of Axfast.


It is very gratifying for us to read about how the Pavilion has been highlighted in Sveriges Arkitekter's post here. We are very proud and happy that our original intentions and visions with the project have been noticed in this way.


We have been granted research funding from Arkus! The designed living environment in care homes has always been of great interest to us. We are very excited and find it important that we now have the opportunity to develop the concept of quality within these environments from an architectural perspective, in collaboration with Lena Rosenberg (Professor of Occupational Therapy, Jönköping University) and other healthcare researchers.


Join us at Arkdes this Sunday! Between 1-2pm, Pye Aurell Ehrström and Katarina Grundsell will lead a tour where they share the process behind the Strömkajen terminal buildings - from idea and model to finished structure. The tour starts in the exhibition hall at Boxen and continues with a walk in the sun down to the completed terminal buildings. At the same time, the museum's new installation "Arbete Pågår" shows some of our other projects, such as Sergelpaviljongen, Naturum Trollskogen and Hjorthägn. We hope to see you there!

More information about the tour and installation here.


New images of Kv Flustret!
In 2013, we won the competition to design a new hotel destination in the area between Svandammen and Stadsträdgården in Uppsala - together with Karavan Landskap. A key idea was to create a new safe entrance to the city park.

Återbrukade offsetplåtar blir fasadmaterial i Vegastadens kvarter 7!
Tidigt i processen inleddes ett samarbete med Stena Recycling för att hitta möjligheter att återanvända något av de material de hanterar. Vi ville undersöka om vi kunde skapa något nytt av en metallprodukt som tagit slut och bedömts som skrot. Det mynnade ut i att delar av fasaden består av återbrukade offset-plåtar, aluminiumplåtar som använts för att trycka tidningar och reklam. De delar av fasaden som inte är av återbrukad plåt består av återvunnen blank aluminiumplåt och för att väva ihop dessa får plåtarna samma sinusformade yta. Trycket på offsetplåtarna, i nyanser som rör sig mellan rött och blått, ligger kvar på plåten och blir en tydlig visuell berättelse om dess förgångna och intentionen om en mer hållbar hantering av jordens resurser. Ovan bild från projektgruppens platsbesök!

Läs gärna mer om projektet i denna artikel eller på vår hemsida här.
På uppdrag av Stena Fastigheter. I samarbete med Stena Recycling AB och plåtkonsult Stefan Lardner


Kv Drevkarlen 9 is nominated for Årets Stockholmsbyggnad / Stockholm's Building of the Year! That our refurbishment project has been noticed by the jury makes us both very happy and proud. Feel free to vote for the project here.
"En robust och flexibel byggnad som visar på möjligheten att återanvända byggnader över tid. Med små medel har äldreboendet fått tillbaka sitt ursprungliga yttre samtidigt som närmiljön utomhus har utvecklat. Ett bra exempel på hur renovering av byggnader kan bidra med utvecklade funktioner som alternativ till rivningar och nyproduktion."


Kv Drevkarlen is nominated for ROT-priset 2023 and we are really proud that the project is competing for the prize of Stockholm's best refurbishment. Thank you to Stockholms Byggmästarförening. Read more about the nominees here.

Marge ♡ Interior
We have always liked to work with the smaller scale and close to the materials. Here are a couple of our interior projects through the years.


Tomorrow the urban development work of Sundbyberg's new city center will be presented at Konstakademien. We have been involved in developing the proposal for the new station building. Come and listen, we will! Lecture here.


Reminiscing about Villa Trångsund from 2008. This two-story brick house from the 60s was transformed into a generous villa through a few large but simple interventions. In the roof of the ground floor and in the façade, the volume and expression of the old house can still be read. The original brick façade is complemented with leca masonry which adds a different scale to the building and the old window openings are bricked in. All coated in a gray-black paint. Learn more about the project here.


So exciting that we are part of developing a hotel on top of Slussen's subway station together with Centria! Read more here.


We think it is very exciting that Villa Sjöberg will be featured in the TV show Grand Designs - House of the Year. Watch the episode "old becomes new" on Thursday here.

Many thanks to Vasakronan for your level of ambition and trust, many thanks to everyone who were involved in the project.

New photos of Uppsala City Library, Children's Department, are soon coming up here on the website. Inspired of scenographic elements. Have a nice weekend everyone!


Marge Arkitekter follows the iniatives from collegues to support Ukraine!
We contribute with 1000kr/employee to UNHCR + additional 1000kr/employee to UNICEF. Children are often extra vulnerable in war and that affects us at Marge a lot. The Akelius foundation doubles all contributions to both UNHCR and UNICEF, so we want to encourage more collegues to do the same.
