…because the way we build is in our nature!”
Our genes. Traditionally humans have always built with natural materials which were available in their direct surroundings. Wood was predominantly a material which was widely available and simple to work with. Today, is wood still used as a construction material due to its positive material properties like a low material density, simple construction principles, outstanding thermical – and acoustic characteristics and a high living comfort. In short, building with wood is in our genes.
Our nature. In the past we lived mainly outdoors and therefore closer to nature. Nowadays we spend most of our time in an indoor climate surrounded by man-made materials such as concrete, steel and synthetic materials. Research show the positive effects of a natural living environment on our health and wellbeing. Sustainable timber buildings take us back to our nature.
Our surroundings. Wood is the only building material which is available as a renewable resource. As long as we take care of our forests, this material will always be available to us. Wood stores CO2, has the lowest emission of CO2 during production in comparison to other building materials and is completely recycable. The way we build can be found in our natural surroundings.
