Farsta is a planned mixed-use community laid out in the 1950's to encourage migration away from Stockholm's city center. Farsta was built on the Swedish concept of planned Folkhemmet (Peoples' Home) suburbs where everything that a community needs is located in close proximity while preserving a high quality of life. Each community is built around a centrum (or community center). Each centrum has a Tunnelbanan and/or Pendeltåg station and serves as a hub for the local bus routes. Shops, medical facilities, public services (i.e. libraries, adult education programs, recreation facilities) and schools are all located in close proximity to the centrum. Typically, several high-rise apartments are built around each centrum - especially the major centrums such as Farsta and Farsta Strand. Smaller buildings containing apartment flats, row houses, and single family homes are built in the surrounding area. Each residential area typically has a playground for children as well as local daycare facilities. Recreation and wildlife reserves are also maintained throughout the community. Farsta is surrounded by large natural woodlands and lakes with abundant wildlife. Roe deer, hedgehogs, hares, and wild birds are common sights. Farsta also has many historical sites dating back to the Viking and mediaeval ages. Camping, swimming, boating, cycling, and walking are popular activities along the numerous public trails - most of which are paved. Farsta Strand has convenient rail service to Stockholm City Center (approximately 14 minutes by Pendeltåg and 25 minutes by Tunnelbanan). The Farsta community also has an excellent network of modern highways and well planned roads. Current commuter traffic is heaviest along highway 271 between Farsta Strand and Älvsjö (which is small elf lake in old Swedish - älv "elf" and sjö "small lake") where the Stockholmsmässan complex is located.
Auldenfire Sweden offices are a short walk from Farsta Strand. Meetings, seminars, workshops, and training sessions are held at the Morgana Hotel and Conference Center located at Farstakrossen (Farsta Industriby) in Larsboda. The Telia Huvudkontor complex is located within five minutes walking distance to the northwest along Mårbackagatan.
