Stockholm Wood City, the largest wooden construction project in the world. Sustainability and advanced technology in one place

The future of timber construction has never looked brighter, and Sweden is ready to lead the way.

The “Stockholm Wood City” project, considered the further development in the world, it will house not only 2.000 homes, but also office and commercial spaces. And, as the name suggests, it will be the Swedish capital's new green neighborhood.

More than just urban development

Although “city” is in its name, Stockholm Wood City looks more like a contemporary neighborhood, filled with homes, shops, restaurants, offices and public spaces. What will really be impressive is its architectural diversity: buildings of different shapes and heights that will highlight the aesthetics of wood.

A sustainable approach

In addition to its commitment to wood as a sustainable construction resource, the project goes further. With solar panels on its roofs and batteries to reduce dependence on the electricity grid, Stockholm Wood City makes an ecological difference. Furthermore, the vegetation will adorn terraces and rooftops, bringing an extra green touch to the urban landscape.

Atrium Ljungberg, the developer company, makes it clear: “The real estate sector has a vital role in the ecological transition, as buildings represent almost 40% of global CO2 emissions.” With a space of 250.000 m², this development will not only provide 2.000 homes and 7.000 office spaces in Sickla, south of Stockholm, but will also represent a new era in architecture and sustainable urban development.

Safety in wooden construction

For those who associate wood with the risk of fires, technology has advanced a lot. Modern engineered wood, such as cross-laminate and glued laminate, has proven to be fire resistant. An example is the Mjøstårnet tower, designed to self-extinguish in the event of a fire, even without human intervention.

Project schedule and collaborators

Construction on Stockholm Wood City is expected to begin in 2025, and the first buildings are expected to be ready in 2027. While official confirmation is still awaited, reliable sources including Dezeen indicate that White Arkitekter and Henning Larsen Architects are behind this ambitious design.

Stockholm Wood City is not only a demonstration of what wooden architecture can achieve, but also a beacon of sustainability for the world.
