Renovation of Rental Apartments in Skarpan

Creating social acceptance through sustainability.

Stockholm, Sweden


Through redevelopment, older buildings can be renewed to become more durable and meet today’s environmental requirements. Riksbyggen has initiated a gentle rebuilding and extension of the residential area Skarpan in Linköping, built in 1965, which has now passed the requirements to be certified in accordance with Miljöbyggnad Silver. The area has undergone extensive but careful renovation and densification. The 282 original apartments have been completely renovated and 150 new apartments have been added by the addition of a fourth floor. Elevator goes to all floors and basements, where apartment stores are located.
