HOTEL AND SPA
FRÖSÖ PARK Hotel, 115 rooms, Östersund (2012-15, built)
The project has two parts, one re-use and one new-build. The architectural principles in the two parts are different. In the transformation of the old building the aim was to make an ambiguous whole, where the additions and transformations are not to be seen as 'new'. In the addition, the facades are clad with prefabricated sheet metal panels whose ordering indicate a tectonic subdivision, expressed in a shallow bas-relief, that is not indicative of the underlying structure but rather strives to order the facade into a harmonious whole.
