Dalén Apartments

New construction / hotel / completed 2016
AGA, Lidingö / for Defigo

In 1912 the inventor Gustaf Dalén was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics and in the same year his company AGA set up shop on Lidingö. In 1914 he was the promoter behind the South Lidingö light railway, which will now have a depot in AGA’s grounds.

The Dalén Apartments Hotel has been built in this historic industrial setting. Altogether it offers 103 hotel rooms that are primarily intended for long-term rentals to companies.

The materials are robust and invoke industry and railways: hard-fired Black Beauty bricks, Corten steel and rust-tinted Otta Rust slate. The building is constructed from prefabricated concrete.
