Municipal Office and Workshop

Gatukontorets kontor och verkstad

Lund, 1961

Koistinen & Nyberg

This early project was a utilitarian complex for the city with banal materials and a purposeful aesthetic. The large walls of glass lit the workshops as the light blue painted exterior blended with the sky in the background. This was an early attempt for the architects to experiment with a complex of buildings with intentional spaces created between each building that would later be revisited at the Cemetery Maintenance Complex in Gävle and the nursing home for the Mentally Ill in Eslöv. The project currently sits in a state of extreme decay.
