One of the most beautiful houses in Malmö
On Östra Rönneholmsvägen, there's one of the most beautiful houses in Malmö. It was built in 1903 in the park that once housed Frans Henrik Kockum's summer house. The courtyard still has a cast iron carousel manufactured at Kockums in the 1840s and is now used as a gazebo.
On October 15, 1838, Frans Henrik Kockum purchased a plot of land called Holmen. In the area, there was a small artificial lake with an islet. The following year, F. H. Kockum had a neoclassical villa built in the southern part, and in the northern part, Kockums Mekaniska Verkstad was located. Around the summer villa was arranged a distinguished park accessible to the public. A funfair was opened in the park, the main attraction of which was a cast-iron carousel—one of the products of that time from Kockums.
Holmen's summer villa was demolished in 1902 and provided space for a residential building, and the large workshop plot was sold in 1909 to a real estate company, and the company's move to the harbor could begin. Around 1913, Kockums had wholly left the area, and before the Baltic exhibition in 1914, the wasteland was hidden along Fersen's road with a plank. When the First World War broke out in 1914, the exploitation of the former industrial area ended. Erik Bülow Hübe, the first city engineer in Malmö from 1921 to 1946, had the area planned for residential and public buildings.
In 1985, the then property owners, Länsförsäkringar i Skåne and director Isak Fischbein had the old farms along Rönneholmsvägen renovated, which in their time replaced the Kockumseran on the site. Then, based on an idea by property manager Benny Ringberg and interpreted by architect Carsten Andersson, a promenade was built through the block, between Jörgen Ankersgatan and Rönngatan, with the name Kockumsgången.
