Abstract [en]

In my thesis project Wood as Skeleton and Space, I have worked with creating a system for wooden apartment buildings with a focus on the wooden skeleton, both being the structure of the building, and an exposed element for visual and tactile relation within your apartment. Provoking memories of the texture and sound of an old wooden floor, the massive, yet so detailed wooden door at your summerhouse, the warmth and beauty of a living material, a breathing material.  

How can we make these somewhat lost atmospheres be part of our homes again? Instead of hiding this material away behind layers of plaster, trying to protect the material, and us, I wonder, is there another way to build apartment buildings in wood where we really use the possibilities it could give us?

Abstract [sv]

I examensarbetet Wood as skeleton and space, har jag arbetat med att skapa ett system för flerbostadshus i trä. Fokus har varit på trämaterialet, både som konstruktion och hur det kan få en större närvaro i själva rumsligheterna. Hur materialet kan väcka minnen; texturen och ljudet i ett gammalt trägolv, den massiva men ändå så detaljerade trädörren i ett sommarhus, värmen och skönheten i ett levande material.

Hur kan de här nästan bortglömda atmosfärerna återfå en betydande roll i våra hem? Istället för att dölja träet bakom lager av gipsskivor, som skydd för både konstruktionen och oss, undersöker jag de möjligheter som trämaterialet kan ge oss i utvecklingen av dagens flerbostadshus.
