Initial position

A single family dwelling erected in 1920 was considered unworthy of restoration. A new building was designed to make better use of the plot and simultaneously serve as an investment option for the building owners.  

Type of construction

Whilst the external wall elements were created as conventional timber frame walls with local reinforcements and a rear-ventilated facade, the storey ceilings feature the revolutionary Timber Structures 3.0 technology. This technology makes it possible to form a flush and very shallow ceiling by bonding the faces of timber building components together. It radically simplifies the design process and makes installation both fast and economical. The ceiling is immediately dry and loadable as no concrete is used. Construction began at the beginning of February 2015 and the building was ready for occupation five months later in July 2015.
