Rosersberg Palace, House architect.

Project (2017-01-01)

Rosersberg Palace is situated on Lake Mälaren south of the Stockholm suburb of Märsta. Construction was started by Gabriel Bengtsson Oxenstierna in 1630. In the 1680s, Gabriel’s son Bengt Gabrielsson Oxenstierna undertook major alterations to the buildings and park, redesigning them in the Baroque style to a design by Nicodemus Tessin the Younger. The palace was acquired by the crown in 1762 and, in the 1770s, the king commissioned architect Jean Eric Rehn to modernize the palace in the Gustavian style that we see today.

Mod Architects was 2017—20, through architect Lars Johan Tengnér, the house architect at Rosersberg. The assignment included looking after the heritage of the palace and, together with a selected group of experts, undertaking necessary projects. Mod Architects were also looking for developmental possibilities for the premises.

Rosersbergs Palace, Märsta, Sweden

2017 – ongoing

When Jean Baptiste Bernadotte became king of Sweden as Karl XIV he also came into ownership of Rosersberg Palace where he and his wife, Queen Desideria felt very much at home. Desideria lived at Rosersberg until her death in 1860. The royal apartments in the palace have not been altered since and have been little used, making them one of Sweden’s best preserved royal interiors from the period.

From 1874 to 2006 the wings of the palace were housed an infantry training school and civil defence school, as well as the Swedish Rescue Services Agency. Since 2008 it has also housed Rosersbergs Slottshotell. The crown still has a right of disposal, which means that the king has the right to make use of the palace and can influence its usage. Rosersberg Palace and its grounds have been listed for preservation since 1935.
