The creative industries’ centre for innovation and development

OUR TWO HOUSES

Media Evolution City and the neighboring Media Evolution City Gängtappen are the hubs for the digital and creative industries in Malmö. Both of the spaces were created by the member organization Media Evolution. The main purpose of these two houses is to featherbed the conditions for growth and development among the involved industries by bringing them together. The concept is based on knowledge exchange and an adamantine “united we are strong” culture.

MEDIA EVOLUTION CITY – Stora Varvsgatan 6, Malmö

At Media Evolution City, both small and large businesses meet. We have a beautiful mix of architects, productions studios, freelancers, technologists, food manufacturers and more. The diversity is fundamental, and we really value the fact that the business world can meet the academy and public sector in a natural way here. Together with Wihlborgs Fastigheter, the owner of the house, we offer a wide range of offices, conference rooms and meeting points.

Before building Media Evolution City, we really wanted to factor in the wants and wishes of our members. Therefore, we sent out a survey where everyone got to answer what they wanted from their dream workplace. From the answers we could gather three components that sort of became the catchwords for the entire transformation: flexibility, simplicity and low thresholds.

MEDIA EVOLUTION CITY GÄNGTAPPEN – Stora Varvsgatan 11, Malmö

Media Evolution City Gängtappen is our newest space. It’s located in Gängtappen, the old Kockums headquarters, a mere 180 meters from the “original” Media Evolution City. At the time it was built in 1958, this was Sweden’s highest office building. With its 15 stories and unique triangular design, this seemed like an obvious move when Wihlborgs Fastigheter asked us if we would be interested in expanding our successful concept to another, second space in the neighborhood.

Our two floors of Gängtappen are placed in the bottom of the building, making us the welcoming entry point of this historic skyscraper. Upon moving in, we did a complete renovation of both the interior and the exterior – again taking into consideration our members’ desire for flexibility, simplicity and low thresholds. Here, too, you’ll find plenty of offices, conference rooms and meeting points, as well as a coming wooden deck (!) and a contemporary park with beautiful plane trees (!!).

 

Book a meeting room!

We’ve got eight unique meeting rooms in our Meeting Point area at Media Evolution City and six at Media Evolution City Gängtappen. There are smaller rooms for close encounters, some larger ones for workshops and group meetings, and really big ones for lectures, exhibitions and conferences.

All our rooms are flexibly furnished to meet the needs of your specific meeting. They are fully equipped with wi-fi and modern technology.

Your office here?

Our co-working spaces are conveniently located in the harbor of Malmö. We offer a great variety of office solutions in all different sizes, both at Media Evolution City and at Media Evolution City Gängtappen. Give us a call or send us an email and we will be happy to help you find what you’re looking for.
