Sustainable and CO2 neutral building in timber
Sustainability is White's driving force for creativity, innovation, increased participation and better architecture. By putting sustainability first, they create buildings and an equal society with people in focus.
Sara Kulturhus is a climate-smart and carbon-neutral building in wood that is good for both the environment and for the people who will be staying in it. The 20-storey house is largely produced locally by the forest in the area. Solar cells and efficient energy use further help to minimize the house's climate footprint. The wood used for the culture house comes from sustainable forestry so the trees that are felled are replaced. The newly planted trees capture CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow, while the carbon dioxide in the felled trees is locked into the building. Sara Kulturhus also weaves together the city's long tradition in wood construction with the latest engineering, which has made the building a model in sustainable design and construction.
Sara Kulturhus has the label Miljöbyggnad Guld, which is the highest label at Miljöbyggnad. Miljöbyggnad is a Swedish system for environmental certification of buildings and today more than 1500 buildings are certified in Miljöbyggnad. Environmental certification of a building means that the environmental work and the building's environmental performance are reviewed by third parties.
