what: examine the structural implications of wood as building material
with: Sander Koland
where: Kirkegata 48, Trondheim
The project was a tool for developing a better understanding of wood as a structural material. This implied that the program of the house would not be the main drive for it's spatial layout, although it is here presented as a student cafe. Rather, wood, and the construction concept we had developed from its structural attributes, would be the topic of investigation itself.
The construction system took inspiration from the technique of a saw-tooth beam, made locally outside Trondheim, by "Rennebu-Bjelken AS", to construct a big and sturdy framework for the house, allowing for two large open floors.
