Tensta Torn

Tensta Torn - a studenthousing tower

An 18-floor building with studenthousing in Tensta, outside Stockholm, providing a total of 243 housing units.

From here students can reach faculties in Kista by means of bicycle or reach the rest of the city with the subway, conveniently located just outside the door.

The facades shift in greens and blues echoing the green fields and the blue sky.
