Abstract (Summary)
This report presents an investigation and a new design of Habo Ullspinneris old industrial premises. It is based on the owners visions and wishes, two questionnaires and also considering of the historical value.Habo Ullspinneri was founded in 1882 by Frans August Johansson and was moved to the location it has today, near Hökån in Habo, three years later. The electricity that the machines in the industry needed was extracted from the small river that is placed under the building. In 1960 there was a fire and the result became the end of the industrial activity that had taken place in the building.There is no steady activity in the building at the moment. It is nowadays temporarily used as an agriculture museum and as a store room. Based on the costs of the restoring that the building needs for future maintenance it is in need of new activities that can bring economic stability.Based on literature studies, interviews, questionnaires, and personal visiting,sketches for the new activities have been done. The work has three main focuses: identification of the new activities and the target group, the possibility of technical design combined with the building’s cultural values.Several solutions were investigated and two of those are more detailed. Based on these results one proposition has been designed.
