The new Björnen is structured in five buildings that together shape a small city within the city. The palace of Adelcrantzska is located here – a little gem from late 1600’s that has survived the 1700’s fires and the 1970’s, a period when many buildings where torn down. This government monument called for special care from our antiquarians. The ventilation system, for instance, is benefitting from the tiled stoves and from existing chimneys – but the technique is well concealed in the building original design.
The palace has been giving a meaning part of this area and city, because it is so recognisable from the street – with the Adelcrantzska palace always serving as an orientation reference.
In Adelcrantzska there are some of Sweden’s finest rococo interiors that have now been restored. Details – such as the patterned wooden floors and the stone floors were also used in the new interiors of the 80’s building. There is a feeling of Scaninavian design in the light natural materials.
