Today, the jury for the Swedish Wood Award 2024 paid a visit to Kajstaden Tall Timber Building in Västerås, Sweden.

When constructed, Kajstaden proudly held the title of the tallest, solid wood residential building in Sweden. The project was commissioned by Slättö and carried out along with the property owner Trenum and the property manager Fastighets AB Balder.

The Swedish Wood Awards, presented by Swedish Wood, is an honorary prize awarded by Swedish Wood every four years. It is an award for good architecture in wood that reflects and develops our contemporary architecture.

Kajstaden Tall Timber Building has progressed to the second round for the Swedish Wood Award 2024. Among the 145 selected buildings, Kajstaden is one of 28 projects the jury will visit and evaluate. We eagerly await the final results!
