On Wednesday September 8:th Sara kulturhus – a 20-storey building constructed from wood from the forests surrounding Skellefteå., will open to the public. It follows in Skellefteå’s long tradition of constructing buildings in wood.
Also, the use of solar cells and an efficient energy strategy help to minimise the building’s carbon footprint. The raw material of the building is sourced from forests in the region, and the wood frame was produced in Bygdsiljum, located about 60 km from Skellefteå. Architecture by White Arkitekter.
