  • The Nurban StoryYour Space. Full of Life.“Nature is norm” + Tactical Urbanism + “Rethinking Happiness”.Nature acts as a source of ideas and materials. Wooden cities in all Nordic countries (Aarhus (DK), Vejle (DK), Växjö (SWE), Skellefteå (SWE), Bergen (NOR), Trondheim (NOR), Kouvola (FIN), Esbo (FIN) + Stavanger (NOR)) have come to stay. Wood as a building material has its new innovative breath.Nearness to nature as well as being a natural part of living spaces in general is the essence of Nurban. Nordic quality and wood as a basic material and standardized modules are all basic parts in the picture. Conceptual solutions of Nurban are well-considered and thoroughly planned. Its aspirations and dreams take into account the character of a community and keep the balance of the environment to achieve the best quality in all possible aspects. The sensitivity towards nature helps to find, create and design the space and shape the environment around us instead of breaking it. Nurban strives for a better quality of life, happy and healthy lifestyles, to find and develop more fulfilling ways of existence where rural surroundings meet with urban beat; rural values are seen in the new perspective. It means the capacity to design and shape places using the resources available to us and maintain the integrity. Wise use of wood as a building material combined with other materials, smart technological systems plus aesthetic value of the houses. It is urbanism with a rural touch in tasteful proportions. It is important to examine the unique features of each place and community to create the best. So that it feels “your space” eventually. Full of life.
