In its previous life the RAG building functioned as a pumping station, supplying the surrounding factories with compressed air and vacuum, among other things. The industrial buildings around the RAG have now made way for newly built homes, so that the building has gradually become the centre of a residential area. The RAG itself has also been allocated with a residential status. By accepting and cherishing uniqueness and what was already there, instead of trying to achieve uniformity, it was possible to build efficiently and naturally. In particular light, space, views and privacy were added to the building in a logical way. The RAG building was completed and put to use in the autumn of 2015.
