Setting the standard on detailing multistorey timber housing

Dennis Hauer

Architect Director

For increased understanding and the upskilling of the construction industry and to support the adoption of multistorey mass timber housing in the Netherlands, this project is creating an open-access knowledge and guidance resource from data and technical details compiled from existing buildings.  

An in-depth study and analysis of ten multi-storey mass timber residences will focus on the buildings’ structural, fire and acoustic performance, as well as broader design details. Research findings will be captured across ten case studies, guidelines for mass timber design, and a set of design and technical details.

Urban Climate Architects

We are URBAN CLIMATE ARCHITECTS. We stand for a future where everyone can live, work and play healthily and safely together. We create a stage where young, old, rich and poor (and everyone in between) can build, develop and grow a quality life. 

To achieve this, we give shape to urbanization, in a responsible way. We intensify the city and thereby relieve the burden on nature. In this way we leave nature alone in its element and create opportunities within the existing city limits. We have devoted ourselves to the principles of a circular and inclusive society. This does not only concern materials and products we make use of, but also applies to our world view that level playing fields must always be created.
