The demand for housing in the Swedish municipality of Årjäng is growing. Therefore, in the fall of 2019, PEAB commenced construction of the new Solängen neighborhood in Töcksfors, commissioned by Årjängs Bostads AB. And in the spring of 2020, the 27 apartments were ready for occupancy. The apartments are divided into three building blocks. All facades were clad with Rockpanel facade boards, which creates a beautiful play of colours in different shades of red, and is also a durable and firesafe facade solution.
Creative freedom for architects
Örjan Nässlander, CEO of Årjängs Bostads AB: “We see that there’s a big need for more housing the area and therefore we must build new residential blocks to be able to meet a brighter future. When we were selecting building materials for the project, we had a long-term ambition. We wanted to go for materials that are durable over a long period of time and that give the architect creative freedom to design and allow for adaptations in the feature. That was one of the reasons the choice fell on Rockpanel facade boards. They can be repainted in the future, which was something the client wanted.”
