In the heart of Lidköping’s central grid layout stands this Falu red “warehouse”. This housing block, where the apartments on the upper floor project out over the garage on the lower floor, have a unique and modern look, while at same time sympathetically reflecting the older buildings in the city. Taking its reference from farming tradition, the building is split, with the “functional” part at street level having a different style to the residential level above. The architectural features are restrained, skilfully executed and liberatingly free from elements of pastiche.
