Jerusalem : Sweden

Jerusalem quarter

A roof garden full of light

When a roof garden in the oldest medieval parts of Malmö were built it needed lighting that could create a smooth feeling. The result? A much appreciated roof garden full of light.


The Jerusalem quarter was 200 years ago one of the poorest in Malmö in the south of Sweden.Today there is nothing left of the old buildings. Instead, you will find residential areas and a shopping mall built in the early 1970's.

 When the property owner Stena Fastigheter wanted to create a roof garden for their tenants, both greenery, light and imaginations played equally great parts. The aim was to create a pleasant space between the buildings.

 Fagerhult contributed with both lighting design and product knowledge. The result has been very well received by both the property owner as well as the residents.

It's amazing to see how much difference greenery and light can do for a dark and previously unused area, says Mats Schain, sales representative at Fagerhult.


The products used in this project are from our partner Simes. Most of them are equipped with energy-efficient LED.

Continuous line is an in-ground luminaire which can provide perfectly homogeneous light with glowing lines on the ground. The product has the ability to make any environment exciting and different.

Rotating LED Tube is an adjustable fixture that provides great opportunities for lighting large surfaces. Its transparent ends also prevent shadowing between fixtures, providing a smooth and comfortable light in the roof garden.

Microfocus is a projector with great lighting performance. Minizip and Compact are two in-ground luminaires with the ability to create magical effects when placed under trees and by facades. 

Minizip allows urfaces and objects to adopt completely different looks - from a soft and uniform light to a more dramatic effect. Minizip easy to both install and maintain.


Products from Simes are distributed via Fagerhult in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Australia and Russia.
