Bröderna olssons elektriska

A New-York-style bistro-brasserie merged with a pair of ingenious brothers who once ran a electrical-shop-cum-inventors’-workshop at the same address.

PREPHASE

From aug 2013 to july 2014 I was an Architectural Assistant at Stylt Trampoli. However, bringing knowledge with me combined with a steep learning curve I quickly gained greater responsibilities. In the first assigned project, I got to create a stand-alone coffee bar and by the time I was 3 moths in, I was trusted to lead my own project, the legendary restaurant La Gondola Trattoria. Situated in Gothenburg’s main street Avenyn it got to continue it’s legacy.

MY ROLE

My first assignment as an Architectural Assistant at Stylt, assisting the head architect with drawings of mainly furniture and bar fronts. However, I was soon trusted to create the coffee bar mentioned above. Planned to be placed in the staircase’s entrance, it soon became one of the most popular ideas by the client and property owner.

THE CONCEPT

With a New-York-style bistro-brasserie inspired by a pair of ingenious brothers who once ran a electrical-shop-cum-inventors’-workshop at the same address, Bröderna Olssons Elektriska switched on a new current in Karlstad, Sweden. Filled with vintage electronics, machine blueprints, electrical contraptions, laid-back atmosphere and excellent food, Bröderna Olssons Elektriska’s electro-technical nostalgia was bound to become the next big thing in Karlstad even before it launched.
