Originally built in 1874, Astoriahuset stands directly next to the new Nybrogatan 17. The building, which previously housed offices and a cinema, has undergone a transformation that has brought the building back to its original function – residential apartments.
The new Nybrogatan 17 office building connects to the renovated Astoriahuset, located in Stockholm’s historic city district, Östermalm. The surrounding area played a crucial role in the design and choice of materials for the new building, as elements from local buildings were a significant source of inspiration.
Astoriahuset’s roof connects seamlessly to Nybrogatan 17 and emphasises the connection between the two buildings. It is a modern interpretation of the classic saddle roof, where the slope runs from a 45-degree angle into a vertical gable, adding a dynamic and distinctive motif to the new building.
Creating a flexible office environment that can be adapted to future needs was one of the design team’s main focuses. Nybrogatan 17 offers both traditional office space and inspiring co-working environments that help promote communication and innovation, provide space for different ways of working and opportunities for spontaneous meetings.
