Gustavian Architecture


Alright, so a bit of context might be needed before we start...
The Gustavian Style became popular in Sweden in the 1770s and is
named after the then ruling king Gustav III. It would continue to be
used during the reigns of Gustav IV Adolph and Charles XIII until it
was replaced by the Empire Style in the 1810s. Strictly speaking
the Gustavian style can be divided into two groups: the older "High Gustavian",
basically the equivalent of Louis Seize, and the "Late Gustavian Style",
corresponding to Neo-Classicism. What differentiates it from it's contemporaries is that
it's more toned-down, less opulent.


Also, anyone can post here, and you don't have to
do any of this fancy centered text and stuff, do
whatever floats you boat!



I'll start with a representative of the High Gustavian Style
(with elements of Rococo remaining):



Heby Castle

Gnesta Municipality, Södermanland

Built: c. 1780

Commissioned by: Sven Liljencrantz

Architect: Erik Palmstedt

And here's an example of non-manor architecture,
note that most of modern day Finland was part
of Sweden at the time:

The Hereditary Prince's Palace

The palace was built on the site of the Torstensonian Palace,
from 1651. The current building was made for Princess Sophia Albertina,
and only became the residence of the hereditary prince after her death in 1829.

The Stockholm Pantheon

Stockholm

Built: Never

Commissioned by: Gustav III

Architect: Erik Palmstedt


The Stockholm Pantheon was one of Gustav III's many ambitious
building projects. It was intended to serve as a more "worthy"
royal burial church, and would most likely have been built on
the site of the Riddarholm Church, where kings had previously
been buried. The proposal was put forward in 1791, but just a
year later the king was assassinated, and thus the project was
never completed. Unfortunately I couldn't find any drawings
of the exterior.

Very smooth and quiet architecture with cosy and subtly rich interiors.

Stunning architecture. The heating structures (stoves, I guess?) are amazingly beautiful.

Yeah they are. I think that they're a Swedish invention actually. Or at least we improved on the design somehow. Also, thanks Eaglesword for posting the pavillion, I couldn't find any good pictures of it. Anyway, here's another building:

Gunnebo Castle

Mölndal, near Gothenburg

Built: 1784-1796

Commissioned by: John Hall the Elder

Architect: Carl Wilhelm Carlberg
























The orangery has long been demolished,
but luckily there remains lots of original drawings of the castle and its surrounding buildings,
and it is therefore being faithfully reconstructed at the moment. This picture was taken in 2015:




Here you can see the orangery to the right:

Korsholm Church

Vasa, Finland

Built: 1776-1786

Architect: Carl Axel Setterberg


Korsholm Church (Swedish: Korsholms kyrka, Finnish: Mustasaaren kirkko) is a church building in the city of Vaasa, in the region of Österbotten in Finland.
Originally the building was built for the Court of Appeal between 1776 and 1786, and designed by Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz. After the city, including the church, burnt down in 1852, the building was rebuilt as a church under the direction of Carl Axel Setterberg, who worked as a county architect for the county of Vasa. Much of the actual reconstruction on the inside of the building was designed and completed by Johan Lillros, a local builder, and a number of local carpenters.
