Wood as a building material has experienced a great renaissance in recent years. So far, it has played a leading role mainly in residential buildings, but thanks to technological advances, we can go much further. Or actually – higher. The first eight-storey office building, built almost exclusively of wood, is being built in Helsinki.
In 2012, Skanska built its first Prague office building to earn LEED international environmental certification. Now, eleven years later, the developer plans to kick off the construction of the Czech Republic’s first climate neutral office complex.
Food connects people. This is the motto of the trendy Spojka Restaurant in Karlín located in the recently completed Praga Studios administrative building. You can eat here whether you are a fan of meat, vegetarian or vegan cuisine.
Atlassian has announced plans to build the world's tallest hybrid timber structure. The 40-story building will be built of wood, glass and steel and will serve as the company's HQ for thousands of employees.
The Skanska company has another ambitious project ahead – the Hyllie Terrass office building. The project is going to be part of a pilot study by the Sweden Green Building Council, which aims to create a network of passive office buildings with zero environmental footprint.
United Therapeutics company came up with probably the most intelligent passive building in the world. “Unisphere” uses an extraordinary combination of modern technologies to enable a zero net energy space even in the city center of Washington (MD).
