This gallery is devoted to illustrating projects from Sweden, the home of Sioo Wood Protection AB.
SiOO:X has been specified over many years by well known Swedish architects, such as the esteemed Gert Wingårdh, on projects across the country. The buildings are positioned in cities, towns and rural environments, many in demanding coastal locations and alongside forests and lakes. Some of these are in sensitive and protected environments.
Samples are shown below:

The Villa Moelven, architect Widejal Racki, made from Thermowood Fir ⬇︎
The Villa Moelven is a showpiece project of Moelven, the biggest wood manufacturing company of Norway (Design: Klas Holm, Architect: Widjedal Racki). The project is a homage to the raw material wood and was built in a traditional way of timber construction. It shows that there do not need to be compromises in design or comfort when building a green and energy-efficient house.

The new main building serves as a link between the old and the new, and is key to the design. The main building has become a meeting place and serves as a hub for the entire school area, in addition to which it ties the various academic programmes together.
The building comprises two volumes: one tall hexagonal tower and another building wrapped around the tower that resembles a band-shaped necklace. The design of the school was inspired by the famous Ållebergskragen, a thick golden necklace from the Iron Age that was found on the site.
