The construction of multi-storey buildings made of wood is an increasingly popular trend in Europe and North America. In American Portland (Oregon), the construction of a new apartment building, which has become a record breaker of its kind, has ended. The building has 8 floors.

The house, designed by PATH Architecture, was named Carbon12

According to the authors, the choice as the main building material of laminated glued wooden blocks was not accidental. Instead of the usual concrete or brick, the studio's specialists wanted to use a local renewable resource that is convenient in production, installation and, despite its lightness, is highly durable. 

The total area of ​​Carbon12 is 3900 sq. M. m. On eight levels are located 14 apartments. The architects specifically emphasize that the residential building is characterized by increased resistance to earthquakes - a factor that must be constantly taken into account in this region. In addition, the used wood has undergone a special fire treatment.
