Grönlandet, formerly known as the Riksförsäkringsanstalten, is not only a functional and inspiring office space but also a remarkable architectural gem designed by Sigurd Lewerentz. Since 1992, it has been designated as a protected historical building under the Cultural Heritage Act, showcasing its immense cultural significance. This classification as a protected building provides the strongest level of historical preservation a structure can receive. Additionally, the building has been classified by the Stockholm City Museum as a site of exceptional cultural value.
Today, Grönlandet is preserving the unique character of this historic building. We have taken great care to maintain and showcase the architectural integrity of the former Riksförsäkringsanstalten. Grönlandet has also trained several staff members who offer guided tours to interested groups, many of which comprise international visitors eager to explore this architectural masterpiece.
While honoring the building's historical significance, Grönlandet has undergone extensive renovations to accommodate modern-day activities. The renovations have been carried out with utmost respect for the original design and environment, ensuring that the unique architectural features are preserved. Special custom-designed furniture, a new graphic profile, and carefully chosen color schemes pay tribute to Lewerentz's original vision.
Grönlandet stands as a testament to the harmonious coexistence of functionality and architectural legacy. Its transformation into a contemporary office space has been executed with great sensitivity, emphasizing the importance of preserving its historical and cultural value. Experience the beauty and historical significance of Grönlandet as it continues to serve as a distinguished landmark that seamlessly blends the past and the present.
