Berlin is a city of diversity. There are many different people and different architecture. However, all citizens need to live somewhere. There are some areas in Berlin were people don’t want to live here. This is due to poor and primitive architecture.
For example East Berlin, Marzan. There is buildings from the heritage of Soviet Union. Moreover, Buildings have to be repaired.
How to make all areas of Berlin more comfortable, ecological and sustainable?
Wooden construction suited for this problem. Laminated Timber is a ecological, efficient and built fast construction.
Lightweight additional storeys rests on the autonomy foundation and creates the image of wooden grove. Beams intertwine with each other and create the necessary strength. The new elevators make life easy.
People continue to live in the house during construction of the additional stores. New housing have 5 type of apartment. We have apartment in 2 floors, with mezzanine. Area for living increases by 60% therefore it is suggested to use the ground floor for offices, shops etc. We can use this way of construction in different countries because this idea is universal and repeatable for different buildings.
