Lignum Prize for Johnson House

22.02.2016

Line

The residential and commercial building of the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation in Köniz received the "Recognition Region Mitte" at the Lignum Prize 2015. The Lignum Prize is awarded every three years in five major regions of Switzerland for pioneering timber construction projects.

The building in the form of a quarter circle has a characteristic wooden façade with vertical lamellas that creates an identity. The four cantilevered upper floors were constructed in prefabricated wooden construction. Composite ceilings of wood and concrete were installed between the load-bearing partitions. The building meets the MinergieEco standard. Timbatec was responsible for the engineering of the timber construction.
