Multi-Generation House
in Bad Oeynhausen

The multi-generation house of Johanniter Unfallhilfe is a meeting place for all people, regardless of age and origin. The challenge of this project: The building was to be constructed for a wide variety of social uses with different requirements and at the same time comply with a sustainability concept. The budget was tight and the completion deadline was set. Wood, as the most sustainable building material, immediately scored points here. Thanks to the time-efficient prefabrication of our solid wood components and the design flexibility they allow, it was also possible to fully meet the other requirements.

The advantages of wood
in the multi-generation house in Bad Oeynhausen

Wood was chosen as the building material because it meets the requirements of sustainable construction. Another reason for the choice of building material was the looming %22potential%22 of the amendment to the NRW state building code with its introduction at the beginning of 2018. The high degree of prefabrication of the timber elements also led to a short construction period and punctual completion of the project.
