• Cederhuset—high rise housing in solid wood

  • The world’s tallest building constructed entirely from wood is planned for the new district Hagastaden in Stockholm. Structure made from pre-fabricated solid timber elements of Swedish spruce.

    The architecture refer to a classical tradition, and is composed with a well-defined base as well as distinct cornices that crest the towers. The facades are covered in cedar wood shingles and the wooden structure will be visible in the ground floor.
