Stay a day, months or years in apartments fully furnished by renowned designer Tom Dixon. The concept of micro-living, the combination of living and working under one roof with flexible rental periods, is now being brought to life in Kista.
With inspiration from international cities, new company UNITY is challenging Nordic hotel and office industries. The new concept combines home and work in the one place while offering tenants extremely flexible rental times, where they can opt to rent an apartment for one day, many months, or even years.
UNITY's first micro-living offering opened last autumn in Stockholm’s Hammarby Sjöstad. There, 139 studio apartments and 100 coworking spaces sit alongside facilities like meeting rooms, a cinema, a restaurant, a café, laundry rooms and a gym, creating a feeling of community.

Comfortable vibes and fully furnished
UNITY has chosen to invest in students for the first stage of its concept in Kista. Unlike the pilot project in Hammarby Sjöstad, housed in a former transformer workshop, Kista will be a new construction. This allows the campus to live up to modern sustainability and energy-saving standards.
The move to “Unity Kista Campus” is planned for March 2022. The students will have access to social lounges, common study and activity rooms and a large kitchen that can also be booked for private dinners. All apartments will be fully furnished and include clever storage solutions, like the bed, for example, which can be converted into a sofa complete with built-in storage.
For stage two, "Unity Kista", 136 modern studio apartments will be built. Ready in 2023, the new apartments are for both private individuals and companies to rent apartments to their employees.
Unique design by Mr Dixon himself

Creativity and sustainability permeate everything, from the construction itself to the choice of furniture and materials, such as the rugs made from recycled fishing nets.
