About the Uni3 Campus and the Lindholmen area – a vibrant home for innovators
Step into in the Uni3 campus, a dynamic hub at Lindholmen for innovators and visionaries. This unique campus is a melting pot of the industry’s brightest, offering a comprehensive suite of office amenities and services. In addition to office space and co-working areas, Uni3 serves as a destination for dining and relaxation, offering a diverse selection of restaurants, venues for events, and a hotel.
Nestled in the heart of Gothenburg’s Lindholmen area, Uni3 stands as a testament to the area’s dynamic transformation. Once an old shipyard, Lindholmen is now a bustling innovation hub, often likened to an engineering Silicon Valley. As part of this evolution, Uni3 champions the spirit of openness and collaboration.

After Geely Holding’s acquisition of Volvo Cars in 2010, the Geely footprint expanded significantly in Gothenburg and the need for dedicated office space grew. As a result, the initiative for a corporate campus emerged in 2016-2017 under the project name “Geely Innovation Centre”. Construction began in 2018, 2019 the brand concept for Uni3 was born, and by 2020, the first building was completed. Four additional buildings were completed between 2020 and 2023, with the final sixth building set to be complete in 2024.
Inspired by nature, designed in a beautiful symbiosis of function and form. The Uni3 Campus breathes openness and innovation.

A fusion of heritage and innovation
Drawing from rich cultural inspirations, the design concept for Uni3 intertwines the essence of two great traditions. The five Chinese elements – wood, fire, earth, metal, and water – are harmoniously integrated with Sweden’s centuries-old glass heritage. The result is a collection of stunning buildings, each enveloped in different colored glass, all standing on a solid foundation of bricks symbolizing the earth.

Legacy & partnership: bridging centuries of collaboration
China and Sweden share a rich history of collaboration. As early as 1731, ships set sail from Gothenburg to China, initiating centuries of trade and partnership. Initially, the focus was on prized goods such as silk, tea, and porcelain. Over time, our ties expanded into areas like research, development, and cultural exchanges.
Uni3 represents the latest chapter in this shared journey, bridging Gothenburg and China through entrepreneurship and innovation. It is a testament to our combined legacy, spanning from the vibrant trade of the 18th century to today’s advanced automotive industry. Truly, a blend of Eastern and Western heritage.
