The summer restaurant in the Pålsjö forest by Sigurd Lewerentz

The Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz  (1885 - 1975) is probably most well known internationally for his Chapel of Resurrection at the Skogskyrkogården cemetery in Stockholm. A relatively little known small scale masterpiece by Lewerentz is the summer restaurant in the Pålsjö forest in Helsingborg. Lewerentz designed the pavilion - which is still in use - in 1914.


The Pålsjö forest is a wonderful recreation area close to the
Helsingborg city centre.
