The firm of Holmberg & Moller had a complex of buildings beside Stockholm's Salt Lake where they operated their milling business.  The name reflects its location on the Salt Lake.  The first building was the red brick structure you see in the images above and below.  In 1923 they added the attractive yellow building with the prominent tower.  This was their semolina mill, apparently the first of its kind in Scandinavia.  When the milling business closed down, some of the buildings on site were demolished leaving these two prominent structures to be preserved and converted to new uses.  The red brick building became a hotel and the Semolina Mill was converted into apartments.
