Skansen, Skanseparken

The Skansen building complex is situated by Skanseparken, where the National Exhibition was held in 1909. The buildings are in red brick on a base of rough-hewn granite stones. On the lowest part of the facade and round the windows there are horizontal bands of rough-hewn granite and red brick. The neo-baroque and art nouveau inspired building has a rather complex character, further emphasised by the 7-storey corner tower, split levels and different balconies, bays and gable attics.
