Transformatorverkstaden, originally a 1940s industrial building, will be converted into microliving and coworking office space.
“This is an exciting project in a characteristic Hammarby sjöstad building. We are now working along several parallel tracks to ensure that the property is long-term sustainable,” says Christian Schjødt-Eriksen from the investment company Aberdeen Standard Investments and Jacob Cronstedt from the property developer Ailon.
“We appreciate being entrusted with the conversion of Transformatorverkstaden. We have extensive experience from similar conversions and are very excited to contribute to creating this new microliving/coworking concept,” says Hans Karlsson, project development at Arcona.
Transformatorverkstaden is located in a growth area of Stockholm – a lively neighbourhood with new homes and offices, restaurants, cafes, school, grocery shops, hotel and good public transportation. The old factory will retain its industrial character, with tall windows, ceilings and beams, providing the building with a characteristic look and identity. The architect for the project is +Rolf.
