Moduler Neubau aus Holz zur Planung von Wohnungsbauprojekten an verschiedenen Standorten in Berlin.

Timber construction set

Densification of a residential quarter in modular timber construction, Berlin

For JOPE Real Estate AG, we developed a modular construction system using wood for housing projects at various locations throughout Germany. The first site to be developed is located in Berlin’s Reinickendorf district, on the corner of Raschdorffstrasse and Herbststrasse. The project involves increasing the density and height of a very distinctive corner building from the 1930s with a rendered façade, loggia parapets with brick facing and a steep gable roof with red roofing. Two storeys are added to the existing building. The new residential buildings are located at the rear and designed in modular timber construction. Whereas the existing building is exclusively dominated by identical two-room flats, the design for the new buildings provides for large family flats, thus ensuring a social mix in the quarter. By exceeding the required proportion of renewable energy, a ‘tiny forest’ in the courtyard, an innovative precipitation management system to cool the urban space and the aforementioned timber construction, the project will comply with the Sehw Sustainability Compass in a special way and will receive certification.
