Live + Work + Innovate

Myran in Einköping is at the turning point from industrial suburb to the lively and productive city district. Plan proposal is based not on zoning of different functions but rather identifying and strengthening areas of different identities. Salavägen in the vest is converted from access road to the main street. Surrounded by highly exposed and easily accessible blocks it offers the perfect location for offices, commercial venues and residences for those who are seeking urban vibe. Eastern side of Myran is dominated by big green area which sips in to the rest of the district in a shape of a network of pocket parks, green alleys and open stormwater ditches. It offers peaceful environment for living, creative thinking and education. Right at the heart of the Myran district lies redeveloped Skälbygatan and Akerbygatan forming the main axis of public spaces for innovation and leisure surrounded by new and existing creative industries, offices, maker spaces together with residences – exploring the future image of the productive city. This approach allows to develop truly mix-use city district that is lively, comfortable and safe around the clock no matter if you are staying in the area or visiting it.
