Cederhusen in Hagastaden will be Stockholm's first large apartment building in solid wood, and will be one of the largest wooden house projects in the world in an inner-city environment. It is a real wooden house that stands firmly on a concrete foundation.
Cederhusen are designed by General Architecture with strong influences and inspiration from Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Cederhusen's architecture is a modern interpretation of the classic stone town's details, consistently executed in wood and where the cedar chip facade gives the house a beautiful and calm feeling. It is a modern, beautiful residence, which takes both people and the environment into account.
We have supplied water-borne underfloor heating and a layer that dampens sound from steps. We have delivered around 100 prefabricated Integrals in cabinets, a customized solution with a special integrated thermostat and balancing valve on the primary side to get a good function based on the project's conditions, as well as room regulation.
The house is built in KL wood, i.e. large prefabricated "plywood boards", and the installation has taken place in a double casting and we have delivered the insulation and a layer that dampens sound from steps between the frame and the heat-emitting layer (approx. 5,400 sq.m. Tacker system).
