This entirely wooden building in Bergen, southwestern Norway can house up to 62 apartments.
The Treet, as this residential tower is called, is nearly 53 meters high and has 14 floors. Until 2015 it was the tallest wooden building in the world.
The Treet, designed by Artec AS, proposed a pioneering and innovative use of wood, through prefabricated modules of cross-laminated timber and Glulam, which were stacked on top of the concrete garage and on top of the strengthened levels. Thus, these modules are stacked four stories high, to be anchored, supported and reinforced by Glulam lattice beams 3 meters high, set in columns and diagonally.
