Sparbankshuset, Stockholm, Sweden

Carl Nyren
Date Built
1973 - 1975 (reconstructed 2002 - 2004
Sparbankshuset is a mixed use building with retail outlets at street level and offices above.  It is home to Stockholm’s Stads Sparbank, now called Swedbank. The facade on Hamngatan is covered with green-painted aluminum sheet and features sharp steel roof beams.   The building underwent  reconstruction in 2002 - 2004 by NyrĂ©ns Arkitektkontor to install a new ventilation system below ground level thereby freeing up space on the top floor for more offices. 

Apparently, the building was classified in 2007 as one of the most valuable properties in the district, and that the building meets the criteria for historic buildings in the Cultural Heritage Act.
