Project Description


Örnsro Trästad ["Örnsro Timber Town"] will be a destination and a vibrant quarter of Örebro, with a clear idea of how to enrich the city's social networks by integrating nature into the urban landscape.

The residential buildings interact with an urban city park including a variety of activities and plazas for social meetings and recreation. The buildings in the district will be created with solid timber frame structures, and will contribute positively to the overall lifecycle perspective of the project. Timber is a renewable material, with low energy consumption and a limited carbon footprint.

The new urban quarter comprises several apartment buildings of varying heights. The activity route, or thoroughfare, through the area interconnects the existing promenade sections along Svartån creek with the surrounding quarter. Ängen, a generous public city park, gives the area an unexpected meeting between city and wild nature.

"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, the 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. "
