C.F. møller presents plans for a timber town in örnsro, sweden

 

 

 

C.F. møller has been chosen to design a residential quarter in sweden made entirely out of wood. held by the municipality of örebro, together with the swedish association of architects, the competition called for proposals that detailed plans for a new vibrant quarter of the city, with a clear idea of ‘how to enrich the city’s social networks by integrating nature into the urban landscape’. named ‘örnsro trästad’ (meaning ‘örnsro timber town’), the contest was won in collaboration with slättö förvaltning.

in C.F. møller’s scheme residential buildings are set within an adjacent park that includes a variety of activities and plazas for social meetings and recreation. as timber is a renewable material, with low energy consumption and a limited carbon footprint, the scheme is beneficial from a sustainability perspective. thus, solid timber framed structures contribute to the overall lifecycle of the project. the plan includes several apartment buildings of varying heights, while an pedestrian active route connects to the existing promenade.

we wish to create an including urban quarter in which the city’s urban and social qualities interact with the park’s organic structures. the proposal illustrates a vision with the objective to create an exciting place in örebro, of unique value, with innovative architecture,’ says ola jonsson, project architect at C.F. møller. ‘for us, it is an obvious choice to choose solid wood for structure as well as façades of wood. in addition to contributing positively to the environment, wood gives us new opportunities to create innovative and value-creating architecture.’
