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.

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."


We want to wish Okidoki Arkitekter that have designed the interior in "our project" Sergelpaviljongen a big congratulations for the finalist nomination in this year's Swedish Design Awards (interior architecture). We keep our fingers crossed!

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.


Welcome to Open House Stockholm! This weekend we will, together with Vasakronan and Akademiska Hus, offer guided tours of projects Sergelpaviljongen och Kräftriket. No pre-registration required - hope to see you there! More info here.

We are really happy and proud to announce that Röda Huset / the Pavilion is a nominee for the Kasper Salin-prize 2021! Many thanks to Vasakronan for your level of ambition and trust, many thanks to everyone who were involved in the project. From the jury's motivation "By adding a different and smaller scale, and making room for new lanes and connections, the red house adds a much-needed node in a part of the city that was previously perceived as uniform and to some extent unsafe." Read more here.


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.

Based on the salutogenic perspective, we have strived to design a building that will support the resident’s everyday wellbeing at the carehome of Askersund.

The characteristic brick facades draw inspiration from the region’s age-old history of brick use and, together with the offset buildings, create an intimate, small-scale whole made up of buildings, walkways and courtyards. Learn more at the project page and keep an eye out for spring-photos of this project.
