Moholt 50|50, Trondheim’s latest student accommodation, has been shortlisted for the WAN Wood in Architecture Award 2016. Comprising a total of five buildings, the project is among the largest cross laminated timber (CLT) structures in Europe.
“This project is ambitious in its use of timber, completely utilising timber both internally and externally with real conviction. Beautifully detailed, the rooms seem very sensible, spacious and well-planned. It’s the best of restrained Scandinavian architecture,” comments James Greaves, Partner at Hopkins Architects and member of the jury panel within the WAN Wood in Architecture category.
The WAN Wood in Architecture Award 2016 is a specialist category that showcases the elegant, natural and versatile material that continues to inspiring architects today.
