About the house

Markeliushuset (Markelius' Collective House) at John Ericssonsgatan 6 in Stockholm, Sweden, was planned and designed by architect Sven Markelius in collaboration with the politician Alva Myrdal and built in 1935. It is internationally famous, both from an architectural-, social- and cultural historical point of view. Many articles and book chapters have been written about the house.

Markeliushuset's tenant's association owns and operates the building. 
It underwent extensive restoration in 1990-91 and was declared 

a historical building monument in 1992.


On the ground floor there are two premises:

•  Restaurant, Pétite France AB.    



•  Preschool, Parent Association Sebran.

During the summer of 2023 Markeliushuset became part of the Iconic Houses Network, an international non-profit network connecting architecturally significant houses and artist’s homes and studios from the 20th century.
