LOCATION. Örebro, Sweden
In central east Sweden, in the city of Örebro, we are building the worlds largest CLT (cross laminated timber) building it is also the worlds largest cellulose based building (and one of the first) where everything from the frame and insulation to the cladding and biochemical oilpaint is proposed as timber based. After years of UFO's research and development around the emerging industrialization of engineered timber, this large scale project will prove the efficiency, maintenance and cost saving, and the positive ecological footprint that this type of construction and design process offers. The residential block will also aim for a zero energy rating by returning excess heat to the city grid.
