These timber towers are proposed by Anders Berensson Architects and the project is a direct move for sustainability in Sweden's housing market.
As a construction material, wood is known to meet industry standards and release the least carbon dioxide. Hence, the "wooden skyscraper city" is conceived with reference to the highest degree of eco-consciousness. In addition, Anders Berensson Architects envisions gardens that cover the roofs of the lower-set timber towers. These vegetative systems will be connected through bridges, ultimately creating a social space for the public, where individuals can interact and be active. Moreover, the Stockholm-based architectural studio is contributing to the housing market with its timber towers by adding "5,000 new homes to the central docklands area of Masthammen."
