From carp ponds to modern residential facilities

The name Zinkensdamm comes from a man named Frantz Zink who in the 17th century owned afarm house with gardens and large carp ponds here in the neighborhood. The farm house Zinkensdamm was demolished in 1934 and replaced with wooden barracks which during the 1940s, 50s and 60s were used as homes for women who came to Stockholm to work. In these barracks we started our business in 1975, ie over 40 years ago. Since then, the barracks have been demolished and replaced with the modern building which today constitutes a hotel, conference and restaurant.
