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.

In the heart of Neu-Anspach near Frankfurt am Main, on a hill, the Hochtaunus-Stift is located, one of the longest-serving old people’s and nursing homes in the district. Where tradition is preserved, there is also room for new, modern concepts. The property of the Hochtaunussift is now being sustainably revitalized. For this purpose, BauWerke was commissioned to prepare a feasibility study for the development with a gross floor area of ​​approx. 9,000 square meters. The concept is based on a sustainable mixed use of inpatient care, day care, assisted living and other supplementary uses.

Better Together

BauWerke and WIEHAG Holding have entered into a pioneering innovation partnership. As one of the world’s leading companies in the field of sophisticated structural timber construction, the Austrian group stands for climate-friendly project implementation. WIEHAG Holding supplies the construction for the world’s tallest wooden building in Milwaukee, USA as well as the largest wooden building in Asia (NTU, Singapore). Outstanding projects have been implemented worldwide with important architects (including Sir Norman Foster, Kengo Kuma). The common goal is to create a synergy between the design and planning competence (BauWerke) and the technical competence in demanding timber construction (WIEHAG). The cooperation works on cmbining form and function and thus to redefine the limits of what is feasible in the industry.

The Spirit of Berlin

AAGIN starts operations

The listed industrial building located at Aroser Allee was built in 1908. It enchants with its historical charm. This is where the idea for AAGIN was born – a unique GIN composition that reflects the charismatic location of its foundation and history as a homage to the splendid Berlin Belle Époque in its internal and external aesthetics. AAGIN was honored with the Meininger’s International Spirits Award as a high-quality distillate. BauWerke is responsible for planning the integration of gin production into the historic industrial building.

BauWerke was commissioned with the renovation of the area at Lake Bogensee in accordance with the listed building standards. The extraordinary building ensemble in the style of socialist classicism consists of a plenary hall building, a culture house and four bed houses. It was created in the early 1950s. The historic buildings on the site are currently being refurbished in accordance with historical monuments, and new usage concepts are being developed.
