NOTE Design Studio and Koncept Stockholm are building Mono from scratch by means of a joint creative process that brings together each individual element, from façade cladding to interior design, into a unified whole.

From the architect: Mono by Glommen & Lindberg is a housing concept situated at the centre of the designer-dense south-central Stockholm district of Södermalm. Mono stands out, in Sweden as a whole and in Södermalm, not only in terms of design and atmosphere, but also in the way it was conceived. The construction company Glommen & Lindberg have commissioned Note Design Studio and the architect firm Koncept Stockholm to design an entirely unique and select block of flats that makes the most of the space available in this listed part of Södermalm.
"Södermalm is a densely developed area. There is virtually no available land to build on. Mono is one of a select few innovative construction projects that will be realised over the coming period. This is an inspiring and unique opportunity" - JAN ÅKE
Glommen & Lindberg’s vision is to build desirable housing in attractive locations. Through this pioneering project they have encouraged architects and designers to jointly come up with a strong housing concept. Glommen & Lindberg collaborate with Note Design Studio and other major Scandinavian design firms that are now participating in a major construction project for the first time with the objective of providing cutting edge housing for an increasingly demanding Scandinavian market.
"Mono is completely unique – the construction of a small, detached block of flats on Södermalm is an unusual venture and a major responsibility. Being part of a small cutting edge team together with Glommen & Lindberg and Note is incredibly inspiring." – HANNA
"This building is a positive contribution to urban densification. One of the challenges has been to make the interior solution as sustainable and captivating as the innovative façade and to collaborate with others on an integrated building with a distinct character." - DANIEL
This part of Södermalm is recognised by its impressive industrial, modernist architecture. Mono is firmly planted in the surrounding urban, industrial landscape. It has a Scandinavian feel in terms of functionality while playful solutions and colourful details gives it a continental touch.
The interior design appears entirely functional at first glance. However, the apparent simplicity is complemented by superior-quality design features supplied by, for example, Mutina and Vola. The aim is to further enhance the architects’ vision and balance the strict exterior with an upbeat interior. Note Design Studio have combined a wide range of different materials in a distinct colour palette that is normally not associated with mainstream Scandinavian interiors.
