Showcasing the country’s resources and traditions, the building uses building materials and systems used in Sweden. The building is a glass design interspersed with a framework of wood. Inside, the structure has a large wooden component, and the outer walls are largely glass to allow for significant daylight to flood the complex. At night, the lighted panels appear to glow, like a golden sail docked on the river walk.

The House of Sweden architects focused highly on sustainable strategies, including using renewable building materials, construction recycling, and alternative heating and cooling systems that substantially reduce energy and equipment lifecycle costs. Another key to sustainability, aside from the maximizing of daylight, is the green roof which helps the building absorb and filter storm water runoff, while simultaneously reducing interior building temperatures and extending the life of the roof membrane.
