Woodscraper - closing the circle.
Innovative living space with a view to the future
through healty, sustainable materials
The time has come for two innovative timber high-rise buildings in Germany. Situated in the technology-oriented city of Wolfsburg, a core team of exceptionally competent and experienced professionals is applying all their determination and energy in collaboration with authorities, specialists and fabricators to design one of the city’s most modern buildings:
The WOODSCRAPER is a high-rise building type employing pre-fabricated solid timber elements combined with minimised, low-maintenance service technology, Timber Reimagined will stand in the centre of the Blue-Tech-Tower development.
Hardly any other building material has experienced as much innovation in recent years as timber and the WOODSCRAPER takes advantage of this progress. The ecological potential for healthy living space without additional cost will be realized using state-of-the-art materials employing hybrid timber construction such as homogeneous jointing technology.
Based on this holistic concept, the WOODSCRAPER is a pioneering project describing a sustainable economic route to the future, a new exemplar that will be globally imitated.
through value-added design and optimal use of resources
through optimised construction techniques and heating technology
MORE CO2 Storage
through timber construction as a resource store
through reduced floor-builld profiles
increase in habitable space through reduced element dimensions
electrical services through intelligent planning and technology
shorter site time
EXPLOIT POSITIVE SYNERGIES
Through a holistic re-examination of build processes,
the WOODSCRAPER creates living space which is both innovative and affordable
Added value without added cost
Increased floor area through thinner walls and ceilings, drastic reduction in construction time, reduced building technology, as well as reduced maintenance and operating costs..
INNOVATIVE and PRAGMATIC
The design of the WOODSCRAPER is tailored to the innovative materials and products employed, while at the same time creating a building designed to maximize comfort and well-being.
PROGRESS with a SOCIAL INTEREST
With its holistic building concept and construction methods, the WOODSCRAPER already points the way to a better future.
SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO COMPLEX CHALLENGES
The WOODSCRAPERS provide simple solutions to answer the complex challenges in the construction sector for healthy housing with lasting value.
SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY WITH REDUCED MAINTENANCE
The significant reduction of technology in the WOODSCRAPERS reduces investment costs and saves maintenance and servicing costs during building operation.
RESOURCE STORAGE FOR ASSET SECURITY
Natural, pollutant-free building materials and demountable elements, enable adaptable re-configuration according to changing needs and therefore maintenance of the value of invested resources.
POLLUTION-FREE AND ECOLOGICAL
Renewable building materials are used where appropriate and possible in the WOODSCRAPERS. The energy for the construction is almost entirely compensated by the energy contained in the renewable building materials employed.
HEALTHY LIVING SPACE with LOW EMISSIONS for ALL NEEDS
The indoor climate is controlled through employment breathable building materials. Timber is hypoallergenic and has a radiation-shielding effect, and the innovative heating and electrical engineering reduces electrosmog in the building.
CONSTRUCTION TIME REDUCTION THROUGH INDUSTRIAL PRE-FABRICATION
Independent of the weather, the individual components are pre-assembled and set up on site within a very short time.
LIVING SPACE OF THE FUTURE
The WOODSCRAPER creates healthy and ecological living space. The resources employed can be safely reused at the end of the building’s lifespan. The WOODSCRAPER is housing with a future.
