A true classic: the Electrolux vacuum cleaner finds a home in many households.

Dwelling in Tensta 1969

Welcome to the apartment of the Arturssons, one of the first families to move into the new dwellings in suburb Tensta. The apartment has been restored and designed in 60s and 70s style.

Welcome to the year 1969 and the apartment of the Arturssons, one of the first families to move into the new dwellings in Stickelbärsvägen 13. The apartment has been restored and designed in 60s and 70s style to give an example of the million programs initial qualities.

1972 concluded the expansion of Tensta, a building project that was started six years earlier. The result was a well-planned city environment housing 16,000 people which was strongly influenced by The Million Program (Miljonprogrammet), a government program to build a million new dwellings during period of ten years.

Kitchens are a cozy gathering point for families, preferably with a lot of plastic and bold color combinations. Photos on the page: Alexander Mahmoud.

Tensta was planned to meet the housing shortage of the 1960s with conception of a small, closely knit community. The newcomers did not represent the group the planners had envisaged and Tenstas inhabitants today represent many cultures with many different values.

During the past 40 years of debate concerning Tensta there has been very little change in its construction. More recently there are plans for several projects in the framework of the “Stockholm’s outer city program”.

In the 1970 there was a strong conviction that you could create good housing development for the growing population by careful planning and functional flats. The result was the modern suburb.
