Conversion of university buildings previously belonging to the Old Technical University (Gamla tekniska Högskolan.) This residential project in central Stockholm involved creating a new master plan and a careful renovation of three former university buildings – each with a different character. The site is a part of the original Stockholm University campus with the main renaissance-style building designed in 1860 by Fredrik Wilhelm Scholander. The project is guided by respect for the history of the listed buildings and is comprised of both renovation of existing staircases, entrances and facades, as well as the addition of new apartment floor plan layouts within the former university premises. The Pharmaceutical Institute, originally designed by Gustaf Dahl in 1896 has been converted to 39 new apartments with 4.3m ceiling heights, lofts and kitchens inspired by the former laboratory interior and fume cupboards. Six new loft apartments have been inserted into the previously undeveloped attic.
