Abstract [en]

The process where people move from rural areas to cities is called urbanization. This has been ongoing in Sweden for a long time. About 200 years ago, 90% of the population lived in rural areas, today 85% live in cities (SCB, 2015).While new buildings are being added, older buildings are taken out of service and this affects the conditions for the preservation of older buildings (Boverket 2007, 15). This will have consequences for how we in the future can relate and understandour history (Sveriges miljömål, 2017). But one of the Swedish parliaments goals is to create a sustainable development, which has made the cultural environment to a usefulresource. It can become an important part of sustainable developmentin both an ecological, social and economic perspective (RAÄ [a], u.å.).The municipality of Kramfors,together with neighboring municipalities,runs a development projectcalled “The tourismindustry of the High Coast -a journey in spaceand time"where the purpose is to tell theindustrial and cultural history of the area and increase tourism in the High Coast and Ådalen. One of the purposes with this master thesiswas topresenta conceptual design proposal for therebuilding and extension of an old harborofficebuildingfrom 1900, located by the river in Öds kaj, Kramfors. Öds kajis one of the nodes inthe development project and the historical harbor buildingcan become the attraction ofthe area.The main purpose of the thesis was to investigate, from a sustainability perspective, how a culture-historicalbuilding, by gaining a new function, can strengthen the socialidentity and contribute to tourism industry in a smaller town. This while respectingthe cultural-historical aspects of the building.Initially, a literature study was made from which information about cultural historical valuation was obtained. With Axel Unnerbäck's (2002) model as support, an analysis was made of the harboroffice's cultural-historical values. The building-historical andsocial-historical values were considered to be the main motive for preserving the building. They were strengthened by the basic motives: architectural value, identity value, industrial history value, patina and social-historical value.Asite analysis and a needs study were conducted in order to mapconditions and needs. In the next step, Peña and Parshall's (2001) method Problem Seekingwasused, where the purposewasto identifyfactors that wouldaffectthe designprocess.Before designing the proposal, a general description of possible future functions/ businesseswas made to decidethe most suitable for the buildingand the area. Based on needsacafé and restaurantbusinesseswas chosen.Beforedevelopingthefinaldesign proposal, a consequence analysiswasmade of three early sketches toexamine the impacton thecultural history values. The final result includesabuilding extension that, through a glass link, marks and respectsthe volume, materials and colorsof the original building.The conclusion of this thesis is that the aspects identity value, tourismindustry and sustainability are strongly interconnected. Sustainability involves the preservation of our cultural-historical heritage, which in a first step is made possible through cultural-historical valuation. The inheritance is in turn important for local identity valuesand tourismindustry, and thus crucialfor anotherpart of sustainability.Furthermore, the conclusion isthat processesand methodsusedin this master thesisare applicable to similar projects where a cultural-historical building willget a new function or business.
