project description


The new building for the community center is located in the northwestern site area closest to the church, thus forming the new space edge to the church forecourt. The building is designed open space structure oriented towards the southern square. It defines the main access to the community center by an indented function box, the so-called “Wandelgang”, on the northern side of the road.

structure


Analogous to the space-determining wooden church ceiling, the new building is designed as a floating, spatially load-bearing structure opening up facing the churchyard and the community. The main defining element is the ceiling structure made of glulam beams that overlay dynamically the hall and group rooms. To the south, the continuous glulam double-span beams form a cantilever designing a roof overhang for a spacious outdoor area.

 


The vertical load transfer of loads from dead weight, superimposed dead load, wind and snow is realized via articulately connected timber columns. The loads from the hinged columns are transferred through strip foundations into the ground serving also as frost protection. For the intersections of the curved support elements special connection details were designed, also as variant proposals.
