KAJ 16

Kromet is a mixed-use project on the banks of the riverfront in Gothenburg, the second-largest city in Sweden. 

The project will be one of the tallest wooden buildings in the world, with its 83.1m in height, Kromet will be the tallest timber structure in Sweden. 

The high-rise design will feature a remarkable design, meant to create an association to a tree; the building will have a glazed façade, enveloping a structural grid with timber beam, columns and pockets with integrated plant boxes in all the balconies, symbolizing the leaves in a tree crown. The columns and beam will be made of glulam and floors and walls will be made of cross-laminated timber (CLT). It is a 37,500-square-metre mixed-use project, which will be used for a mix of condos, rental apartments, student housing, and co-living apartments as well as offices, auditorium, and cultural activities.
