Swedavia has inaugurated the Office One complex, a 10-story, 15,000m2 (161,460m2) building adjacent to Terminals 4 and 5.
Designed by Sandellsandberg and built by contractor NCC, the new building is certified under BREEAM standards as Excellent, with interior furnishings inspired by Scandinavian colors and natural materials. Co-working space and meeting venues under the management of United Spaces account for 2,400m2 (25,840ft2) of the total floor space.
The inauguration included trend analyses from Kairos Future and panel discussions on the theme of tomorrow’s workplaces and how companies will need to adapt to new, flexible ways of working.
“The airport is an optimal place to start up operations for the ways of working in the future: open, international, flexible and with a focus on meetings between people. Through our partnership with United Spaces, we can offer modern co-working solutions at Stockholm Arlanda, and I am proud to have the honour of inaugurating Office One,” said Karl Wistrand, deputy CEO of Swedavia and acting director of the Facilities and Systems corporate unit.
“It is fantastic that United Spaces can now offer opportunities for co-working and meeting venues at Stockholm Arlanda. It is a dynamic, growing place with great potential for this kind of format for working and meeting. The premises, which include 2,400m2 of floor space, are located between Terminals 4 and 5, and the interior furnishings are inspired by Scandinavian colors and natural materials. We look forward to seeing that development here,” says Yvonne Sörensen Björud, CEO of United Spaces.
Airport City Stockholm, which is a collaboration between Swedavia, the Municipality of Sigtuna and Arlandastad Holding, is expected to play a critical role in the growth of the Stockholm region and Sweden. The plan is to double the number of jobs there, to 50,000, by 2030.
