We create and develop residential and commercial solid wood buildings, adhering to the most rigorous energy efficiency, quality and aesthetic standards - combining a holistic design language, a consistent choice of materials and sustainable construction methods with CLT / cross laminated timber, our LAIN CHARVUN (charred wood) exterior cladding and all natural, chemical free finishings for interior and exterior surfaces

project ANALYSIS - southern Switzerland
Scientific and statistic evidence clearly shows that everybody needs to embrace more sustainable, sensible building materials - the current construction methods, residential and commercial, are not sustainable enough or not at all, are not based on renewable raw materials and the predominant building materials - concrete, steel, plastics and glass etc. - require vast amounts of energy to be produced, mostly from non-renewable energy sources.
We can and do propose better, modern alternatives, that are respecting sustainable principles and are focused on renewable raw materials.
The introduction of CLT / cross laminated timber / solid wood panel construction, opened up exceptional possibilities for spatial design and architecture - from small residential projects to very large commercial or industrial proportions - while respecting sustainable principles, focusing on a renewable material - WOOD.
The monolithic character of the solid wood / CLT / cross laminated timber panels allows for a very efficient, innovative and fast construction, and can cover a wider range of aesthetic and technical requirements than concrete - additionally, wood is the only natural, renewable and sustainable building material, which is 100% ecologically reusable and effectively reduces CO2 emissions, a carbon sink.
As creative leaders we are especially responsible to engage these new possibilities and propose new solutions - THE WOODBUILDING ( CH_S_01 ) project, completed 2014 in southern Switzerland, was the first freestanding building we created from idea to completed building, showcasing the material and construction principles, establishing our vision as a brand - THE WOODBUILDING ® - a registered brand name that is synonymous with future- oriented, sustainable solid wood buildings that we develop with a dedication to the highest quality standards and a holistic design vision - from draft to completed building.
We offer a clear design language, a consistent approach to sustainable and renewable construction methods, but no standard solution - every project is developed along specific requirements, to its use and location - THE WOODBUILDING ® - instantly recognizable, but never the same, never generic - pure, calm and healthy - living in THE WOODBUILDING ® - a unique, sensible and beautiful choice.

DESIGN AND MATERIALS
A clear design language, a consistent approach to sustainable and renewable construction materials and methods - rigorous quality standards, energy efficiency and solid wood construction, using CLT panels / cross laminated timber
We wanted to explore and find the most sensible, modern and ecological responsible way to build - this led us to an intense research of modern and historic, organic, natural building materials and finishing techniques - Shou Sugi Ban, charcoal, chalk and solid wood panel / CLT / cross laminated timber construction.
URBAN - INDUSTRIAL - RURAL - PERSONAL
We created THE WOODBUILDING ® as a proposal to consider as much in an urban context as in a rural environment - taking into account future changes in socio-economic developments, people’s work-life balance, increased mobility, and the need to reduce drastically the negative effects of other construction materials.
Wood is the only natural, renewable and sustainable building material, which is 100% ecologically reusable and effectively reduces CO2 emissions, a carbon sink
