18 wooden modular residential units for Social Housing
In the city of Göttingen, Germany, a new building with 18 modular residential units intended for Social Housing blends harmoniously into the urban context thanks to the colour of the façades, reminiscent of the surrounding buildings created in the 1960s in yellow klinker, one of the typical colours of the last century architecture in Lower Saxony. The wooden construction technology has enabled, as required by the Customer, a significant reduction in the construction times of this building. In addition, the modularity and the large-scale dry mounting of the ceilings & walls optimised and reduced the on-site operations. The 8.8 x 8.8 spatial module corresponds to a residential unit with a gross area of 78 square metres and a net area of 68 square metres, with three bedrooms, living room/kitchen and bathroom. To meet the local fire prevention regulatory specifications, the building has two external sets of metallic stairs. For the design, German standards were applied: F30 for fire prevention, DIN 4109 for acoustics and Enev 2014 for energy performance.
Construction time: 6 months for "turnkey" – 3 weeks for installation of the wood structure
For the implementation of the architectural concept Rubner Objektbau
has collaborated with the Venetian studio SERGIO PASCOLO ARCHITECTS
