An office for custom-made wood construction by MODUS Architecture
The expansion of the head office of the company Damiani-Holz & KO S.p.A. in Brixen (Bressanone) has been carried out by the young studio Modus Architecture. The building project, the winner of a competition in 2008, highlighted the peculiarities of the company, dedicated to developing custom-made wood construction solutions and the pursuit of product quality.
The building, which enjoys a dual ClimateHouse certification (Nature and Work & Life), looks like a building made entirely of wood. The façades, are characterized by a coating of fine wooden glulam slats.
Thanks to an articulated design the façades show an undulating movement, under the light of the different hours of the day, which gives dynamism to the entire façade. The base, in exposed reinforced concrete, created to support the upper floors constructed entirely of wood, deliberately indicate, metaphorically, the natural vulnerability of wooden materials when placed in direct contact with the ground.
Nevertheless it is in continuous dialogue with them: the concrete is moulded into the formwork and these are treated to give it the wood grain or designed to create a play of light and shade in perfect harmony with the system of slats above.
