Moholt 50|50 - Trondheim’s new student village
Moholt 50|50, Trondheim’s latest student accommodation, is set to become Europe’s largest cross laminated timber structure. The sleek and stylish development has a sustainable Kebony façade and will comprise five blocks housing up to 632 students at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
Dagfinn Sagen, MDH Arkitekter commented: ‘This is an incredibly ambitious project, and once completed it will be the largest cross laminated timber (CLT) construction project in Europe. We chose Kebony for the build as it requires no treatment throughout its whole life cycle, and is the perfect choice when you need a cladding material that is maintenance free. Over time, it also naturally develops an attractive silver grey patina, an aesthetic that we believe really works for this project."
