Modular Canteen With Style - Material Diversity Through Wood in Combination With Steel
This modern building in modular construction is the canteen of the Generalmajor-Freiherr-von-Gersdorff barracks in Euskirchen. Only the modularity enables the harmonious combination of industrial steel construction with natural materials such as wood and underlines an impressively clear line management. Although only temporarily erected as an interim building, the canteen is in no way inferior to permanent buildings with long life cycles.
All requirements for both fire protection and energy efficiency of permanent modular buildings were met. In addition, the façade system unfolds an unlimited scope for design.
Special attention was paid to the design of the façade. Here, a larch-Rhombuid-façade was installed horizontally, sawed and oiled. The rain pipes were led through the air layer of the wall structure.
All substructures as well as the terrace decking were made of weather-resistant wood.
Unlike conventional construction methods, the building thus retains its value even if the location and use change. The principle of sustainability was taken into account in a special way.
