GWG München – Badgasteiner-/Fernpaßstraße

Category: multi-storey building
Build time: construction phase II: new replacement building: 2014

The use of wood as a construction material for the energy-performance modernization of floors and the addition of floors to basic residential buildings constructed in the 1950s self-assuredly develops a new exemplary type of architecture.

Challenge:

The residential accommodation in Badgasteiner Straße was built during the 1950s and had to be brought into line with modern living conditions. The proposal was to construct model timber-framed housing meeting both cost-efficiency and environmental requirements.

Innovation:

During the preparatory stage of the project, the construction task was fleshed out in cooperation with the Chair for Timber Structures at the TU München as a student seminar design project. The formation of the architectural and specialist planning team at the start of the project enabled the definition of a joint list of implementable objectives.

Solution:

The new replacement building was completely constructed using the timber-frame method in line with the latest standardization requirements and research developments.

Result:

The building was awarded the “Holzbaupreis Bayern 2014“ (2014 Bavarian Timber Construction Prize).

Transfer:

In the reasons for their decision, the judges indicated that both the significant qualitative improvement of the apartments and the major increase in planning density represented a successful solution to current issues in growing cities.
