About us

Street Monkey Architects is a Stockholm-based architecture studio dedicated to designing stimulating, social and ecologically-balanced habitats for humans. We are located at Åsögatan 186 on Södermalm.

Our work includes hotels, schools and housing, which we have designed for clients such as Turako Skolfastigheter, Friendly Building, Vectura, Wallfast, Svenska Turistforeningen and Byggvesta as well as private clients.

About the name: When I first moved to Stockholm, I trained in Parkour. It was an amazing way in which to get to know the city and a fascinating perspective from which to see the city. We trained like monkeys, running, crawling and jumping everywhere from the city center to the suburbs. I learned to love Stockholm in this way and I also saw people using the city in different ways.

I began to think, “if we see ourselves as animals, without all the trappings of culture and with primal needs for stimulation, movement, light and air, then maybe we can design in a more free and robust way and if we see ourselves as animals, then maybe our dependency on the planet is closer and we can design in that space as well.”

Maybe we are just monkeys, monkeys of the street. Monkeys of the street who happen to be architects.  /Cage
