Welcome to Gnistan in Vallastaden
Right next to Linköping university, you will find Vallastaden, a district developed from a housing and community expo in 2017. Here, traditional ways of building have been challenged, resulting in exciting architecture and a unique neighbourhood in which people, interaction and sustainability are in focus.
In the central square in Vallastaden, Studentbostäder has 183 homes. Some of the homes have been built according to a new concept where architectural students provided the drawings. It is the result of an architectural competition sponsored by Studentbostäder, where the winning submission was given the chance to be translated into reality.
