Can Kalejdohill become a positive force for action in society?
Kalejdohill is a two year research and communcation initiative on urban planning and social research, directly linked to the area Kvarnbacken in central Jakobsberg, Järfälla Municipality.
The object is to investigate and generate ideas on architecture, design and social sustainabilty. The project is thus based on communication with residents and visitors as well as inspired by national and international experts from the fields listed above.
The project was initiated by Håkan Berg, CEO at HSB Norra Storstockholm, and is managed in cooperation with Veidekke Bostad and Einar Mattsson. The objective is clear: to develop the area in dialogue with its inhabitants, while at the same time helping to develop Järfälla as a destination during the present sharp expansion and extension of Järfälla municipality.
The starting signal for the Kalejdohill project came about when Järfälla municipality and HSB Norra Storstockholm signed an agreement on 600 - 800 new dwellings around Kvarnbacken in the centre of Jakobsberg. Together, the municipality and HSB wanted to create a multi-functional destination and an attractive meeting place – built around architecture, design and art.
Over a period of two years, Kalejdohill will help develop Järfälla as a locality, focusing on central Jakobsberg and Kvarnbacken in particular. Kalejdohill is the project that will turn Järfälla and Jakobsberg into a locality for social progress, architecture and design. A locality that many people would like to visit, invest in, take an active part in and make their home.
The work is based on a few guiding premises or principles, and our vision is to create the opportunity to establish a new design and architecture centre, adapted to today’s need for meeting places, housing, communication and lifestyles.
- Kalejdohill makes a start at Kvarnbacken locality and examines and communicates new locality and destination development forms.
- Kalejdohill’s cornerstone is commitment today for social sustainability in the future.
- Kalejdohill employs architecture, design, art and communication to fill Kvarnbacken with content and life – long before the houses are built.

Kalejdohill builds on the engagement and ideas from many individuals. This is how we initiate and manage projects and fill Kvarnbacken with exciting content.
Basically, destinations and cities are built on two components: their place on the map and their network. For Kalejdohill, the network has been a cornerstone. HSB Norra Storstockholm launched the initiative, and soon brought with them Veidekke Bostad and Einar Mattsson. Järfälla municipality has been part of the project from the very start. We are always open to interesting collaborations. Most importantly, in addition to the investors and strategic partners listed below, we continue to work together with the inhabitants of Järfälla. We organise workshops, offer young people summer jobs at Kvarnbacken and much more. Keep an eye on our news page for more information on what’s going on.
