Projektbeschrieb
The housing estate consists of two five-storey elongated buildings with 155 apartments and commercial premises. Connected by two walls at the ends, the buildings enclose an inner courtyard. The entire building is constructed in wood. This is not apparent in the interior, as all wooden elements have been clad for fire protection reasons. Insulation and energy supply are designed to comply with the Minergie P label. This means that incidental costs can be kept low and the building structure well preserved.
