At the architecture firm Kjellander Sjöberg, shipyard ruins are converted into modern office spaces and London’s derelict industrial areas into waterfront neighbourhoods with social ambitions. One of the founders is Stefan Sjöberg, who designs tomorrow’s rooms and cities with demolition metal, a ruler and dreams.
Which of your projects that represent sustainability and design are you most proud of?
– We’re converting a foundry in the old Kockums area of Varvsstaden in Malmö into a modern workplace for 300 people. An industrial ruin meets the future of work with a creative hub, a cafe and businesses opening up to the city life. We work a lot with sustainable materials and use bricks and metal from demolished buildings around the area.
Kjellander Sjöberg is one of eight appointed flag-bearers by the Swedish Design Movement.
