The house is located in one of the most attractive locations in Aarberg directly on the Hagneck Canal overlooking the Chasseral. The family house is designed for a family of four to six. The house has the living rooms on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs and is fully built on a basement.
The special feature of the house is that it is built in Holz100: a glue and toxin free solid wood construction. With 30 cm thick solid wood walls with a large storage mass, solid wood parquet and wooden doors, this house radiates a lot of warmth and security. Also the z. T. plastered wall surfaces were created with a natural material, a fine lime plaster.
The house is heated only with a wood stove on the ground floor and the radiant heat is distributed throughout the house.
The material and the heating provide the residents with a healthy and comfortable living environment, which is energy-saving and sustainable for future generations (circular economy).
Noise makes you ill - when building a house, it is important to plan rest. With double-shell wall structures and adapted ceiling constructions, Holz100 offers solutions far exceeding the requirements of the sound insulation standard.
The impairment of the quality of life through noise is a disruptive factor that affects many people. Noise disturbs the well-being, the ability to concentrate and the communication. Typical consequences of continuous noise are limited performance and a higher susceptibility to disease.
In the case of a new building, considerable protection against noise pollution can already be effected in the planning phase without additional expenditure. Acoustic windows are only part of the measures. The highest degree of protection is achieved when choosing the right building fabric. Prefabricated houses in lightweight construction offer only low noise protection and brick or concrete walls are sometimes even very good (ie harmful) "sound bridges". The best solution is provided by solid wood - provided that it is processed correctly. Solid wood is the best natural sound or noise insulation.
In the past, wooden houses were considered to be clairaudient - and almost everyone can tell an amusing anecdote about thin hotel walls. Thanks to the Thoma Holz100 walls, which have been awarded numerous innovation prizes and certificates, the exact opposite can now be experienced. Wood becomes the building material for the most peaceful recreation homes. In Längenfeld / Tyrol (pictures below) is probably the quietest wooden hotel in the world - the Waldklause. Here, a sound insulation was measured, which is twice as high as the standard values of Europe demand.
The future-oriented active office building complex ARCHENEO is located on Bundesstrasse 161 between Oberndorf in Tirol and Kitzbühel. The holistically developed project has as its main objective an energy concept that is designed for the lowest consumption and also generates more energy than is consumed. This energy is sourced locally from renewable sources, combined to provide all consumers with a storage concept for peak load delivery and peak load optimization.
The supply of the commercial park completed in 2010 with a usable area of 6,500 m2 takes place with an active energy balance over the entire year. The surplus energy is used among other things for the operation of electric vehicles. The total annual energy consumption is about 209,000 kWh. The total yield is currently 226,750 kWh.
The ARCHENEO is the first energy-autonomous solid wood building with zero grams of CO2 emissions in Austria. This is achieved without loss of comfort for the users. The active house is made of native, moonwood completely ecological - without adhesives, glues or chemicals. The building is built from 36.4 cm thick Thoma Holz100 elements and grows again in Austria's forests in 42 minutes. The project makes a valuable contribution to raising awareness of the changeable and ever-renewable resource wood.
For a high-quality mix of innovative companies from the ecological, social, innovative-technical as well as health and wellness areas, there is also space for other companies in addition to existing companies, which profit from the synergy of the overall concept.
