Sustainable Forest Management: Best Practice Sweden
HSB Trädgården Housing Cooperative in Luleå, Sweden
Located just two kilometres from central Luleå in the northern part of Sweden, a tenant-owned housing cooperative is under construction. Great care has been taken to make the new houses fit in with the surroundings.
In the centre of the houses a garden will be planted with fruit trees and berries and the children will have a playground with natural materials. The apartments are built from a both practical and personal perspective in an environment that encourages a sense of community.
Made from FSC-certified timber, the houses are built using an industrial technique that minimises construction time on-site.
The housing cooperative consists of 41 apartments that vary in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms, 64-120 square meters.
