With the extensive conversion and addition, great care and consideration has been given to this historically valuable environment, both in terms of the building itself and its surroundings – the town, the square, and the garden. Because the present day is allowed to make a mark, to take a place in the archive that Bruksgården constitutes as a building, a program and a site, all of the layers of time are clarified and respected.

The extension, an interpretation of the Skanian longhouse, has been deliberately designed for a contemporary impression. The addition is a coherent sculptural structure in brick and cast concrete, with obvious impressed and protruding sections. The project is based on tactile materials that are possible to work with in a sculptural way. The dark brick, used for both the walls and roof, are bound together with mortar. The mortar presses into the inner spaces where it, in the interaction with the inner materials, concrete and plaster, is redefined in order to shape the inner rooms.

A central aspect of the project is the art, which integrates the inner and outer sequence of the rooms, floorplan and organisation in a conscious way. The art can, like another layer, define place, room, connection, as well as program and organisation in a way that corresponds to the human act of laying claim to a place, or inhabiting a space.
