In the heart of Malmö stands Sweden’s first skyscraper Gängtappen, or the Threaded Pin. The building has also become known for its characteristic triangular form. It was once home to the headquarters for Kockums shipyard, and recently Media Evolutions City moved in.

When Malmö’s creative hub, Media Evolution City, sought more space to expand operations, they discovered the potential in reopening the previously closed building known as Gängtappen, or the Threaded Pin.

On two of the building’s fifteen floors, the Wingårdhs interior design team has created a colorful co-working office. The two levels are linked together by an atrium and a staircase whose green color descends directly from artist Tor Hörlin’s wall mosaic, which has adorned the building since it first opened in 1958.

Pink walls, plywood, and bare concrete recur throughout the design, balancing one another in a way that complements the building’s 1950s atmosphere.

“We are proud that the Threaded Pin and Media Evolution City can now invite people to take part in the future of meetings inside Sweden’s first skyscraper,” says Joakim Lyth, an architect at Wingårdhs. “It’s a sustainable building with style and vitality that’s been given new life and will now be useful for many more years.”

The offices are located on the upper level and have flexible walls that can be moved and adapted to meet changing demands. Internal conference rooms and pantry occupy the triangular point, and a vertical flow has been created on the opposite side of the building by cutting two openings in the floor. Front desk, restaurant, and conference rooms are planned for the entrance level to facilitate meetings.

The Threaded Pin is in competition for the title of Sweden’s Best-Looking Offices.
