Sustainable and CO2 neutral building in timber

White is driven by Sustainability in their creative and innovative process to create better architecture. By putting sustainability first, they create unique buildings and an equal society with humans in focus.

Sara Kulturhus is a carbon-neutral wooden building that do good for both the environment and for the people that will use it. The 20-storey house is mainly produced by timber that has grown in the regional boreal forests. Solar cells and efficient energy sysmtes further contribute to minimizing the house's climate footprint.

The wood used for the culture house comes from sustainable forestry so the harvested trees get replaced. The planted trees capture CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow, while the carbon dioxide stored within the refined timber products is locked into the building.

Sara Kulturhus contributes to the long tradition of wood construction in Skellefteå with the latest engineering, which has made the building a model in sustainable design and construction.
