Swedish architect. Much influenced by the English Arts-and-Crafts movement, especially the work of William Morris and R. N. Shaw, he also derived aspects of his work from Berlage, Nyrop, and H. H. Richardson's designs, as well as from German Jugendstil. Drawing especially on vernacular architecture, he became celebrated as a designer of houses and churches, and his buildings were important influences on National Romantics such as Östberg. His most celebrated religious work is the powerful Engelbrekt Parish Church, Stockholm (1906–14), and among his houses Tjolöholm Castle (1897–1906) and Villa Widmark, Lysekil (1902–4), are good examples of his work.
