Holzhaus am Waldpark

New construction of a multi-family house in solid timber construction

A three-story residential building for a joint building venture was erected on a plot of land directly adjacent to the forest park of the BUGA grounds in Potsdam, not far from the Pfingstberg.
The house is built in ecological solid and glue-free timber construction. The wooden surfaces of the load-bearing ceilings and walls are left visible in the apartments and characterize the atmosphere of the interiors.
Both the apartment sizes and the floor plans are variable and could be co-determined by the building community members. A community garden is a meeting place for the housing community.
