Transformatorverkstaden – Unity Hammarby

Nestled in a renovated turbine hall, Unity Hammarby Sjöstad offers a seamless blend of living and working space, perfect for professionals and business travellers alike.

A modern oasis in a historic turbine hall

Originally used as a welding shop and school by Asea in the 1940s, the building is one of the few surviving structures in Hammarby Sjöstad, an area bustling with new development.

Unity’s project includes a mix of short and long-term apartments and co-working spaces. Common areas include a stylish lobby, a well-equipped gym and the stunning old transformer hall, which retains its industrial charm.

The co-working space, located in the grand turbine hall with its 10-metre high ceiling, offers workstations and meeting rooms, complemented by a lobby bar and a spacious rooftop terrace.

The project encompasses approximately 160 rooms across 7,000 square metres. Accommodation options range from compact studios of around 18 square metres for one or two people to larger apartments of up to 40 square metres for four people. The high-ceilinged ground and first floors feature chic loft apartments for two to four people, with elegant steel and wood lofts.

The new micro-housing concepts for hybrid living were developed through a collaboration between Design Research Studio, the design and innovations agency at the heart of Tom Dixon Studio, and UNITY.

Experience the unique blend of history and modernity at Unity Hammarby Sjöstad, where life and work harmoniously intertwine.
