Serneke has been contracted to convert the former S:t Göran upper secondary school on Kungsholmen in Stockholm into student housing. The reconstruction of the building in the neighborhood Vallgossen is worth approximately 310 million SEK.
S:t Göran upper secondary school was opened in 1960 and is classified as a building with historical importance. It was designed by Léonie and Charles-Edouard Geisendorf and has a unique architecture.
The building has been empty for several years and the school is now rebuilt into 250 apartments, eight preschool departments, offices and garages. It is former classrooms that will be rebuilt into smaller student apartments consisting of one room and kitchenette. An annex on the courtyard will also host student apartments. The project also includes an extensive restoration of parts of the building.
