Just to the west of Linköping’s town centre lies Vallastaden, a new district in Linköping. The vision has been to create a varying residential environment with people in focus. Over five years, the first 1000 homes were built by 40 stakeholders. The overall purpose of Vallastaden has been to create an attractive Linköping and at the same time contribute to the development of Swedish social structure. The means to create this vibrant neighbourhood was to have a heterogenous, diverse townscape and good material choices. OrganoWood® can be found on several buildings, constructions and parks around the neighbourhood.
The project iValla in Vallastaden has won the “Architect Award 2017 in Östergötland”. In this project OrganoWood® decking timber has been used in the entrances, on the balconies, entrance terraces and roof terraces.
