Minimal Impact

Lightweight construction plays a decisive role in reducing our CO2 footprint.
We concentrate on minimising the use of materials.
We rely on renewable materials and maximise re-use.
We take a holistic, interdisciplinary approach, pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

Infringing rules - without breaking them

Our interpretation of lightweight construction focuses on a radical reduction in the consumption of limited resources, and aims at comprehensive sustainable structural design. In this context, we pursue three key approaches.

Form Follows Force

For us, lightweight structural design is a central approach in which the design of load-bearing structures is carried out in such a way that the use of materials is reduced to an absolute minimum. We analyse and optimise load paths, select materials, arrange components and transfer given loads to the supports with a minimum of dead weight.

Preserve resources!

We integrate natural, renewable building materials such as wood, clay, straw and bamboo into our structural concepts and develop them further using modern construction methods. This not only enables us to reduce the ecological footprint of our construction projects, but also contributes to the creation of healthy and sustainable living spaces.

Circular future

We attach particular importance to the circular economy and building within existing structures. We see it as our responsibility to contribute to the protection of the environment by focusing on the maximum conservation and re-use of existing resources and thus focusing on the future.
