Looking for a room with a view and near all the action? Look no further than this former airport control tower that has been turned into a unique high-rise apartment. This old control tower in Sweden's Arlanda Airport sat vacant after the airport built a new one. SOUNDBITE: Lena Rokaas, Head of Operations and Deputy Director of Arlanda Airport, saying (English): "It's been empty for some years now so they came up with the idea to do something nice with it and I think they succeeded actually." The studio space - featuring floor to ceiling windows - comes with all the comforts of home, but only a few lucky people will get to stay here. SOUNDBITE: Lena Rokaas, Head of Operations and Deputy Director of Arlanda Airport, saying (English): "We've made this up as an apartment and worked together with our partner HomeAway to create an absolutely unique apartment up here where you can compete be able to win a 24-hour experience here at Stockholm Arlanda Airport." The airport and HomeAway will pick five winners when the contest ends in July.
