Karlastaden is a new city center being developed in Lindholmen, Gothenburg.

What services will the inhabitants of Karlastaden need in their homes, buildings and infrastructure and how will they choose to interact with these services? These were some of the questions to be taken into consideration.

We started off with high level mockups of potential features that we wanted to explore. Designing interactive scenarios into an app allowed users to get hands-on experience with the features and possibilities, provided by these new services. The app was designed with data collection in mind as all parts of the application could easily be liked, rated, or commented on by users.

Karlastaden Utveckling was then able to manage and visualize the collected data to inform their decision making process. The app was developed together with Karlastaden Utveckling, Soft House, and Microsoft; available in the App Store since May 2017.
