Modemet 1, house 10


The project, in short

Vasakronan’s “Modemet 1” building has been chosen to represent Swedish environmental assessment systems at the SB Challenge SB11 Conference in Helsinki in 2011. The building combines advanced modern architecture and technology with well planned environmental adaptations. The building is part of the new Kista Terrass city district of the Kista Science City. This is a dynamic growth area with a focus on IT, technology and development.

The building was completed in the summer of 2010 and accommodates working areas for around 1500 people, distributed over eight floors. It has environmental certification, in part in accordance with the new Swedish “Miljöbyggnad” rating system and in part in accordance with the EU Green Building certification system. In the “Miljöbyggnad” rating system the building has achieved a GOLD rating, which is the best rating possible.
