Imagine a place never before experienced, high, high above the city. Here you wake with an expansive view of Gothenburg. This is where you live in a highly contemporary apartment, designed by some of Sweden’s leading architects. You have access to a gym, pool and a unique level of service – order your evening meal, send your washing down, or get your flat cleaned before the weekend’s dinner party. You can take the lift straight to the cocktail party in the sky bar, the barbeque in the shared garden or drinks in the hotel bar. Welcome up! And welcome to a new way of living.
We are launching the Twist, consisting of 166 unique flats on floors 38-58 with large window sections and extra spacious balconies. The Twist will be included in the 5th stage of sales which takes place in the middle of March.
From Karlatornet you have a clear view to Vinga, Marstrand and the Pater Noster lighthouse. And of course city landmarks such as Älvsborg bridge, Skansen Kronan, the Liseberg theme park, Kämpe bridge and Keiller Park.
The idea of building Karlatornet first emerged a long time ago. Step by step the dream of constructing the tallest building in the Nordic region has become more defined and together with my colleagues and architects, we have finally drafted plans for the building. Occupancy can begin in 2020, and the entire new area with home, offices and businesses will be completed a few years later. The vision that we had in 2005 is now a step closer to coming to fruition.

The heart of Gothenburg is growing. Lindholmen is already one of the city’s most expansive areas, and thanks to Karlastaden, it will grow to include 10 new neighbourhoods of homes, offices, businesses, pre-schools, schools, health centres and everything else that you need to live here. There will also be a large hotel with a restaurant and bar in the lower levels of Karlatornet. This will be an area buzzing with life. You get here easily on public transport, and new transport alternatives are planned, potentially including a cable car that will be a fast and easy way to across the water. In neighbouring Lindholmen Science Park, home to many Swedish and international businesses, perhaps you’ll find your new job here too?

The apartments in Karlatornet are designed by two renowned Swedish architect agencies, Andreas Martin-Löf and KUB. All apartments are based on a contemporary, holistic design, where function, materials, and views are obvious and important elements. Materials are of the highest quality throughout, and the architects have chosen to maximise the view from every room.

Even the smaller apartments have an open and airy feel due to, amongst other things, fantastic views that intensify the experience of each room and apartment's size.

"My vision for the interior of Karlatornet is to create precisely executed designs where international luxury meets Scandinavian restraint and elegance. We use a muted colour palette for the top floor. Dim grey-coloured spheres on the walls and ceiling, and muffled pigmented oak for the floors meets matt Antracita kitchen furniture. A terazzo, which we developed especially for Karlatornet, and a light marble hint at accents in the counters and bathrooms. Faucet and fittings in brushed black chrome create contrast."
Andreas Martin-Löf. Head architect for Karlatornet's interior design
