TIMBER LIMITLESS

  • Description

Phoenix Central Park - Performance Space

This unique and multi-faceted project in Sydney, Australia combines a garden, an event space and an art gallery. The extraordinarily complex cross laminated timber components were already shipped to Australia in winter 2018/2019 and subsequently assembled within eight weeks. The assembly of this project resembled a large-format puzzle - a total of 162 single and individual cross laminated timber layers were installed one above the other in an already existing room. The especially high degree of prefabrication and the millimetre-precise CNC production are equally impressive.

 

"The hours invested in advance by our design engineers in the three-dimensional assembly planning have paid off completely. It is always a nice feeling when the interaction between the structural engineering, design, production, shipping and assembly departments works well and results in such a project".
