Main administration building of one of the biggest wood-processing companies in Austria The office workplaces are housed in two two-storey “tubes”. The light-flooded area in between contains the communication and circulation areas. The whole architectural design expresses the dynamism of this expanding company, with the timber structure “floating” on M+M supports. With the aid of glulam panels (products developed by the company) it was possible to realise projections of up to 8m. The close co-operation of the architect and the structural engineer, combined with the innovative will of a dynamic company, guarantees high-quality building in a short time (ten months to completion).adress: Turmstrasse 57, 8700 Leoben - Austria
