Three construction systems

Blockhaus is inspired by the origins of wooden houses built by overlapping tree trunks. The first Blockhaus Rubner was built in 1964. This type is different as far as stability, insulation and weather resistance goes. Surely it is the most suitable in countries of the world with inclement weather. It is widespread in Northern Europe throughout Alpine and is recognizable characteristic feature of the mountain landscape. Blockhaus is a building type that is particularly suitable for the design and construction of houses with low energy consumption.

Residenz has a lattice structure that combines elements of classic style, timeless, with innovative construction systems according to the highest quality standards and a balanced energy consumption. It is perfect for those who prefer a plaster façade but still want a wooden house. That trellis is the work of a construction technique that has been used for centuries. It provides for low power consumption and high thermal insulation. An example of the high level of aesthetic quality and design flexibility is CasaClima Heidis designed by Matteo Thun Soligno which can live in full contact with nature. The system represents the evolution of construction techniques already in use in the twelfth century between the Scandinavian pioneers of timber. The house type Soligno is composed of solid wood boards of rectangular shape side by side vertically and finger jointed without using nails or glues. The result is absolute bio buildings where the solid wood without polluting substances has excellent static properties, sound and thermal balancing. The wood comes exclusively from mountain forests planted according to sustainability criteria. It is less prone to cracks, it is naturally resistant to wood pests and is peculiar for its dimensional stability.
