Opening ceremony for Båtsmanskasernen in Karlskrona

Hyper Island celebrated the opening of newly renovated facility Båtsmanskasernen on Stumholmen in Karlskrona earlier this week. An extensive renovation of the old bosuns lodging building, originally built in 1847, has been in the works for some time. We're proud to have turned the building into a place for modern technology while conserving its history and environment.
Starting fall 2009, students will be able to work in the premises.

Blekinge county govenor Gunvor Engström was present, plugging in the cord to the first computer being used since the completion of the renovation. Here she is with Hyper Island CEO Mattias Hansson.

We are also proud of our other education facilities, including Kronohäktet (a former military prison) and Ångpannecentralen in Karlskrona, as well as our premises in the old Ericsson headquarters on Telefonplan in Stockholm.
