Project description

In the heterogeneous new residential development in Wiberg, the four wooden buildings with pre-grayed facades appear charming, tranquil and restrained. The one-storey scale demonstrates fine tectonics with extremely precise façade detailing. At the same time, balanced structure of wood and glass gives the buildings timeless elegance.
The buildings consist of a massive plinth level inserted into the slope with direct access to the gar-den, two upper floors and an attic with a spacious roof terrace with wooden structures. The under-ground garages are optimally embedded in the terrain and have direct access to the staircases with disabled-friendly elevator.
The apartment buildings meet the Minergie-P-Eco standard, which not only guarantees low energy consumption during the construction of the buildings but also the highest quality of life for the resi-dents.
The use of ecological building materials has a positive effect on the indoor climate; building materi-als, the production and deconstruction of which have a minimal impact on the environment. The wooden construction is highly thermally insulated, the windows are triple-glazed and additionally equipped with GLASSX solar storage glass on the south side. Glazed loggias – the season rooms – support the passive solar system, and at the same time offer unique living comfort. The high-quality building utilities with comfort ventilation and heat pumps complete the energy concept. The tenant benefits not only from the high quality of life, but also from consistently low utility costs.
The four apartment buildings comprise a balanced apartment mix, from space-optimized two- and three-room apartments to family-friendly four- and five-room apartments, and luxurious pent-house apartments. All residential units have excellent lighting due to large window areas and light materials.
