Örnsro Trästad will be a destina­tion and a vibrant quarter of Örebro, with a clear idea of how to enrich the city’s social networks by integrating nature into the urban landscape.

The residential buildings interact with an urban city park including a variety of activities and plazas for social meetings and recreation. The buildings in the district will be created with solid timber frame structures, and will contribute positively to the overall lifecycle perspective of the project. Timber is a renewable material, with low energy consumption and a limited carbon footprint.

The new urban quarter comprises several apartment buildings of varying heights.

The activity route, or thoroughfare, through the area interconnects the existing promenade sections along Svartån creek with the surrounding quarter. Ängen, a generous public city park, gives the area an unexpected meeting between city and wild nature.
