From a large parking lot and a desolate backside to a public transport hub with vibrant city life in a cultural-historical environment. FOJAB has built a brand new city block in central Malmö with 190 apartments, 200 workplaces and commercial activities on the ground floors.

At street level is a two-storey shopping mall, linked to the existing shopping center. A further five floors facing the surrounding streets are residential and office buildings. From this building rises a 19-storey residential building. In the interior of the block there are further residential units and green gardens at different levels, while the car parks are two levels below ground.

In Triangelgallerian, FOJAB created a square to enhance the environment for the many commuters who move in traffic, but also to provide a harmonious place for relaxation in a small-scale, dense and intense environment. To create variety and enhance the urban feel, the shops are accessed through three portals in winding aisles at street level. The square, which is located in the center and opens up through both floors, is formed by playfully placed shop boxes.

The office is located on four levels on top of the mall, two to five steps up. The main entrance is located on Rådmansgatan. Outdoor spaces in the form of roof terraces are available both in connection with the lowest floor of the office and at the top of the recessed penthouse. Secure bicycle parking is available in a raised courtyard between the new and old Triangeln. The office's tenants have a nice view of S:t Johannesplan and also visual contact with the lush inner courtyard.

At the top, both street and high-rise buildings are crowned with sections of golden brass plate. The courtyard environments are built on the roof of the mall, on three different levels with a wide range of spaces and experiences. The character and composition of the plant material provides greenery and beauty throughout much of the year and highlights the changing seasons. There are sheltered places in the shade of the pergola's creepers, offering seating via integrated benches and special play areas for children. There are also spacious grassy areas and several wooden decks to accommodate larger groups.
