Dungen, Malmö, Sweden

Directly adjacent to the Hyllie railway station, Wihlborgs is building the Dungen office building, which has a fantastic signage location facing both Arenagatan and Hyllie Allé. The property will be green in several senses — it is being certified in line with Sweden Green Building Council Gold and the entrance floor’s atrium is being planted with trees to provide a living, green environment. 

The verdant garden of the farm previously located on the site has been used for inspiration with the tree planting. The atrium will be the glowing heart of the building and cast a warm light through the night. Sustainable, hard-wearing materials that age elegantly will be used throughout the interior. The walls of the atrium will be clad with slim strips of wood, as will the open spiral staircase, and polished cobblestones will be laid in the entrance floor to amplify the outdoor feel. Wooden elements will also be used in the office environments to create a warm, natural feel.

The property has six floors and an underground car park on two floors. Space will be created on the ground floor for stores, restaurants and services and the tenants will be provided with generous terraces on the third and fifth floors.

The facade will be given two different pleated forms. A glass facade will face Hyllie Allé in the north generously allowing light to penetrate and the other facades will be clad in a light sheet metal.

The property will be certified to Sweden Green Building Council Gold standard and occupancy is scheduled for Q1, 2019.
