The original flight control tower at Stockholm Arlanda Airport has been transformed into a luxury apartment.

The obsolete tower has now been converted to a roomy, luminous space which overlooks the runways.

This is the result of the partnership between Arlanda and vacation rental company HomeAway and Swedavia. The 80-meter-high tower has been reinvented into a destination that’ll appeal to aviation geeks, design freaks- the general public nonetheless.

The Scandi-cool, minimalistic looking apartment is the brainchild of Swedish multimedia artist Cilla Ramnek.

Ramnek has designed a 1960s gray-scale color scheme. The chic design is complemented by pops of color and blue skies glimpsed through the floor to ceiling windows.

“This is by far among the most fun environment I have ever worked with,” says Ramnek. “I am inspired by the place itself with its special conditions and then the furnishing comes naturally.”

Stays in Arlanda’s tower are being offered as competition prizes.

Five winners — and their guests — will get to spend a night in the apartment, followed by a further three nights at a HomeAway rental of their choice.

Winners will also get to a take a trip up to the balcony of the airport’s new flight tower and enjoy a meal at airport restaurant Pontus in the Air, owned by acclaimed Swedish chef Pontus Frithiof.

HomeAway are renowned for making use of inventive spaces — in 2016, the company transformed the Eiffel Tower’s unused conference room into a luxury apartment.

Most of the products incorporated into the apartment are available for purchase inside Arlanda.
