Sirius 3, Malmö, Sweden
We are building a new city block, Sirius, on Carlsgatan, adjacent to Malmö central station and next door to the Slagthuset property. It will offer space for up to 500 people to work in an inspiring environment in a prime commuter location in one of Malmö’s most exciting areas – Nyhamnen. This is a property that is looking to the future and offers an early taste of the new city district growing around it.
Totally new city district
The proximity to the city centre and the central station has led to the Nyhamnen area sometimes being referred to as southern Sweden’s most central location. Malmö has great ambitions for the area, which is intended to be a compact, green and diverse city district. 6,000 new housing units and 13,000 new workplaces are being created here, along with schools, preschools and parks. There are plans for pedestrian and bicycle bridges over the railway yard to connect Nyhamnen with other parts of the city centre and, in the long-term, a pedestrian bridge is planned to provide a direct connection to the train platforms.
Brick meets glass and metal
The building will have facades of anthracite grey brick with glazed gables framed by metal sections with a brass effect. The idea is to create an exciting contrast between the dark bricks and the glittering metal and glass, with the brick providing a connection to the facades of the older buildings. The light from the roof of the atrium is intended to provide a lighthouse effect that can be seen from the city centre.
The property is designed so the areas are flexible and can be developed in line with tenants’ requirements.
The building will have five storeys and a subterranean garage, with the potential for shops and services on the ground floor. Each floor will have space for up to around 125 workplaces and a shared atrium will connect the two main bodies of the buildings.
