introduction

The e_3 project in the Esmarch Street in Berlin is the first 7-storie timber structure in an urban context in Europe.

The idea is to create an open urban block in contrast to the typical reconstruction of Berlin, with its prevailing perimeter block development with buildings spanning from fire gable to fire gable and having identical eaves heights.

The complex could only be developed with a client collective because issues like individual decision making, sustainability and special urban design features can only be called for by a critical client as opposed to a developer whose primary interest are the expected financial return.

materials and building techniques

The timber shell and core of the apartment house is characterised by it's load bearing skeleton consisting of columns and beams. The construction method generates transparency and variability as well as a completely free scope for the layout design. The bracing of the building is integrated into the solid timber panels of the façade.
