high rise buildings

Treet or "The Tree" in Norwegian proves that sustainable solutions for buildings in an urban context can indeed be achieved by working across different sectors to create a cost-efficient, modular high-rise building using a prefabrication process. Finding inspiration in the long history of wood construction in Norway and, in particular timber bridge building, the decision to build a tall wood high-rise in Bergen was definitely appropriate. Along the way, Treet has also set a new record for being one of the tallest timber buildings to date.
