Coworking oasis inaugurated at Arlanda

The newly built Office One building close to terminals 4 and 5 includes “tomorrow’s workplaces” at United Spaces.

Airport operator Swedavia is developing what it calls the “airports of the future” and “the most important meeting places in the Nordic region”. With this in mind, an airport city now taking shape at Stockholm Arlanda includes the newly built Office One complex.

Inaugurated on May 15, Office One has 15,000 square metres of space on ten floors, located immediately adjacent to terminals 4 and 5.

One of the tenants there is United Spaces, Sweden’s leading player in the rapidly growing coworking movement.

The inauguration included trend analyses by consultancy Kairos Future and panel discussions on the theme of tomorrow’s workplaces and how companies will need to adapt to people’s new and flexible ways of working.

Airport city
Airport City Stockholm, a collaboration between Swedavia, the municipality of Sigtuna and Arlandastad Holding, “will play a critical role in the growth of the Stockholm region and Sweden”, the airport operator promises. The ambition is to double the number of jobs there from 27,000 today to 50,000 by 2030.

“The development of an Airport City Stockholm will play a critical role in the economic growth of the Stockholm region and Sweden,” said Karl Wistrand, deputy CEO of Swedavia.

“The airport is an optimal place to start up operations for the ways of working of 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 today to have the honour of inaugurating Office One.”

Yvonne Sörensen Björud, CEO of United Spaces, added: “It is a dynamic, growing place with great potential for this kind of format for working and meeting. The premises, which include 2,400 square metres of floor space, [have] interior furnishings inspired by Scandinavian colours and natural materials.”
