The Canopy

The public building offers space for expositions, a communal center and a library. The exposition spaces on the ground and first floor are characterized by a curved laminated timber structure. The curved columns on the ground floor seamlessly merge into the laminated timber canopy. The canopy establishes a transition zone between the sheltered interior spaces and exposed exterior spaces. The possibilities of the application of this structural system have been explored with the development of a physical model.

The upper floors of the public building and apartment complex both use a structural system based on the German construction system CREE. The apartment complex facilitates residences ranging from single bedroom apartments up to three bedroom family apartments. The apartments all have direct access to an sheltered outdoor space provided by the balconies surrounding the structure. In total the building offers 168 apartments spread across 14 floors.
