Best architecture projects with wood 2021
We bring you the best architecture projects with wood interventions on a world scale.
The versatility of wood in construction
Located in Indonesia, the first selection is the Warak Kayu micro-library, designed by the SHAU studio and with an area of 182 m2. The structure is lifted off the ground so that the building can fly freeing up the ground floor to add value to the urban space.
In a larger-scale context, the Tzannes multipurpose building combines wood with contemporary architecture, generating a novel visual game. The 11,700 m2 surface contains a commercial and office portion for the lower floors and a residential portion for the rest of the levels.
For interiors, creative embossed wood paneling creates a topography. On the other hand, for the ceilings, a sequence of slats covers the surface, allowing them to be discontinued only by the lighting lines.
The latest project is the Climatorium in Denmark, which stands out thanks to its innovative facade that contains a wave of light wood that tries to represent the lines of the wind. For the upper crowning, dark wood slats are repeated and superimposed following the lines of the wave.
The building provides a new urban space for visitors to the port and is open to locals and tourists interested in learning more about climate change.
