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.


This year Marge was turning 20 and last Friday we got the chance to celebrate this in our soon to be new office space (under construction). Thank you so much to everyone who came to talk, laugh and dance with us. It was magical!

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.

Read more about UNHCR's work in Ukraine here and see how UNICEF is helping the children here.

#embassyofsweden Ljura on behalf of Conlega.


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.
