High-rise buildings made of wood
The BauWerke / WIEHAG duo combines a high level of technical expertise, a passion for timber construction, and forward-looking, sustainable architecture. The result was the prototype of a 7-story building that can be erected as a product of equally high quality and cost-efficiency for a variety of uses in an individual design and layout.
Design, functional, technical, economic and building physics factors were intensively coordinated between the teams. This concerned, among other things, the floor plan layout with its high flexibility and variability, both in planning, in use and in subsequent use (third party use), the choice of storage masses, the dimensional, load-bearing and construction system, the production methods through to construction logistics.
The prototype, which was designed once as a residential building and once as an office building, shows that the many advantages of timber construction can be fully exploited with professional interaction between design, planning and production, without having to compromise on economy, functionality or comfort.
