Wooden Skyscraper in Stockholm, Sweden by C.F. MØlLLER Architects

For the Västerbroplan plot in the Marieberg district, Berg | C.F. Møller has drawn up plans for a 34-floor wooden apartment building. The building is designed around a wooden structure with stabilising concrete cores.

Pillars and beams will be constructed using solid and cross-laminated timber and inside the apartments floors, ceilings and window frames will be made from wood, allowing the material to also be visible from the outside through the large windows. Wood is the natural choice when it comes to materials for innovative residential development: It is an environmentally friendly and durable material which creates a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and, surprisingly enough, also constitutes a very efficient protection against fire.

Each apartment will be equipped with an energy-efficient glass-fronted balcony and the building itself will receive energy from solar panels situated on the roof. At street level there will be a café and a nursery and, in a new neighbourhood building, all residents in the area will be able to enjoy a marketplace, gym and bicycle storage location. A shared winter garden will make allotments possible.
