Architecture in wood

Architecture in wood

Sweden is the best in the world at building with wood and has a long and proud tradition to draw on. Wood is natural, renewable and 100 % recyclable. It is a healthy and versatile material with a minimal footprint. By increasing the proportion of wood, we can reduce the use of other building materials and we are not dependent on long-distance transportation - Swedish sustainable forestry provides locally produced raw materials.

It is therefore natural for us to participate in the development of the wooden architecture of the future.

Trummens Strand in Växjö is one of Europe's largest wooden house projects. Here, FOJAB has developed a wooden architecture that combines the possibilities of solid wood with the unique characteristics of the site. You can think of it as FOJAB's answer to how contemporary residential architecture in wood can take shape. Trummens Strand was awarded Växjö Kommuns Träbyggnadspris in 2019.
