Urban Development with Timber Construction

Since 2016, a model settlement in timber-frame construction has been under construction on the site of a former barracks in Munich (see also page 52 in this issue). Rapp Architekten won housing company GWG's competition for one of the building projects together with Müller­blaustein Holzbauwerke. The ­result: 57 residential units and ­
a building for three crèche and three kindergarten groups. Rapp Architekten divided the building block into four compact structures: a 7-storey residential tower and three 5-storey units. From the first floor upwards, the supporting structure is made of wood. The storey ceilings ­executed as wood-concrete composite constructions with visible wooden undersides lie ­on the massive access core, and the wood-concrete composite girder, which is flush with the ceilings, on the internal, visible wooden columns which transfer the vertical loads floor by floor. Horizontal bracing is provided ­by the continuous concrete slab of the wood-concrete composite ceilings, which are statically ­connected to the staircase cores and the elevator shaft. The load-­bearing interior walls consist of cross laminated timber encased in gypsum plasterboard.
