Eight-storey timber construction house in Bad Aibling, Germany

An eight-storey apartment building, set amidst greenery, has been constructed in Bad Aibling – at almost 25 metres high it is currently the tallest timber-frame house in Germany. This future-oriented project was supported by researchers at the Technical University of Munich, Rosenheim College and ift Rosenheim.

The entire supporting structure of this building is made of wood, with only the stairwell core being made of concrete – for fire protection reasons. The façade is also timber-clad, offset by isolated rendered areas.
