A folded plate structure roof entirely designed in wood is the most striking structural component of this two-storey building.
In order to conceive a modular structure as thin as possible and easy to assemble, a structure with only two geometrically different shapes of elements, one diamond - and one parallelogram figure, has been developed.
Linked by just three different connection types the roof is supported by steel columns placed in an 8.50 m grid at the lowest points of the folding.
