Mass Timber Infiltration

Abstract [en]

Two concepts, Mass timber construction (the new concrete in architecture for its many benefits) and conversion or Adaptive reuse (the evident necessity in a rapid growing city like Stockholm) are merged to re-purpose and expand on a 5 decade old industrial building located in Slakhusområdet, a meat packing district in the south of Stockholm planned to be repurposed in the next 15 years.

The new mass timber structure infiltrates through the old building from above transforming its interior spaces and structure to allow for new function while supporting the new much needed housing above.  

How can one of the most important aspects of using mass timber - a short assembly period, be utilized in a conversion? How can the inherent large volume of timber elements become useful and enhance the quality of the existing interior spaces?

Can mass timber infiltration be a way to densify an already built urban fabric with modern engineered wood while still preserving its historic value?
