Buildings based on rational modules both large and small in scale are now being put up all over the country at considerable speed. Catalogue houses, a chapter of their own in the history of Swedish wood – represent an area in which we are currently seeing new advances and fresh innovation. Leading architects are now engaged in creating turnkey, prefabricated homes of the highest architectural quality.
The first kit houses in Sweden appeared in the first half of the 19th century. These were easy to assemble and light to transport. Swedes have been experimenting with modular housing ever since. Producing a prefabricated house in a dry and well-lit factory is the best way to guarantee quality and ensure greater construction safety.
