Woodlife Sweden at Archtober | Where people can thrive. Botanikern, housing complex – Meet the architect

Botanikern is part of a new neighbourhood in Uppsala, Rosendal, developed according to a high sustainability standard.

This newly built housing complex literally breathes wood, with a CLT frame and a wooden façade. The natural material is further emphasized by greenery – on the façade, in the courtyard and on the rooftop with its own biotope landscape. Social interaction is also at the projects core, as are circular systems and biodiversity, and living spaces to share, for all.

Presentation by Maria Axelsson & Andreas Lönnroth, Axeloth architects and Claes Larsson, Stadsarkitekt, Uppsala
