Folkhem's concept building
Folkhem is a company that plan and construct its own buildings. Folkhem has made a conscious decision to always build buildings of wood. One of the main reasons is the environmental aspect in the production phase where the use of wood generates low climate impact. Folkhem collaborates with the provider Martinsons, which constructs the wood-modules of which the buildings largely consistas.
Folkhem's concept building has been designed based on the strategy "apartment buildings in solid wood above ground". The building is located in Stockholm and consists of 10 floors. The bottom level and half of the 2nd floor are below ground level are of concrete, while the other floors above ground level consists mainly of solid wood.
