Abstract [en]

Alsike convent, located in the countryside between Stockholm and Uppsala, has existed since the 1960’s and has been active as a sanctuary for refugees who are in the process of waiting to get their residence permit or who are paperless, since the 1990’s.The existing convent consists of a group of buildings around a courtyard, located in close connection to a church. The main building is a typical Swedish vernacular, red painted house, with bow windows protruding from the roof. The diploma project is an extension to the convent. A project that lead to an exploration of the landscape, materiality versus abstraction; about the combination of the poetic with the pragmatic.

Abstract [sv]

Aliske kloster är lokaliserat i naturskön miljö mellan Stockholm och Uppsala, och har funnits sedan 1960-taet. Klostret har även sedan 80-talet verkat som ett flyktinghärbärge. Det existerande klostret är inhyst i en traditonell svensk landsbygdstypologi, ett falurött hus som tidigare var en by-skola, brevid klosterbyggnaden finns en medeltida tegel-kyrka. Examensarbetet handlar om en tillbyggnad av det befintliga klostret och handlar om hur det byggda förhåller sig till landskapet. Ääven den ovanliga mixen av arkitektonisk programering som kombinationen av boende, kyrka, flyktinghärbärge och andlig retreat innebär undersöks. Slutligen undersöker arbetet materaliteten och abstraktionen i tegel.
