Project

Rundhusen Lövstabruk


Size: 235 m2 LOA
Client: Statens Fastighetsverk
Year: 2012

In collaboration with slottsarkitekt Dick Sandberg

Rundhusflyglarna was built around 1730 and were used to house the staff of the manor. The buildings have undergone numerous alterations internally. Both wings have periodically been used as garages, and large garage doors have been constructed in the façades. The northern parts of rundhusflygeln have in recent years been used for housing.
The proposal presented an interior remodeling of the round buildings to create hotel rooms where the facades and surroundings are restored to resemble their original condition. A photograph taken around 1900 shows Rundhusflyglarna as seen from the mansion. The bridges west of rundhusflyglarna have now been removed and placed in a nearby garden park. The proposal instructed that the bridges would be moved back to their original position, and that the sealed doors in the facade gables would be reopened to revive a more dynamic movement in the courtyard.
The gable rooms were remodelled as wedding suites and obtain an obvious connection to the nearby church which is a popular spot for weddings. The proposal is characterized by fastidious architecture with great detail and consideration of the existing building and its history.
