The luxury apartment complex “Panorama Giustinelli” in Trieste, Italy, is a unique and trendsetting construction project as it consists of six entirely timber-built storeys (exception: stairs and lift systems) with a total area of 2,900 m2 and strives to achieve maximum energy efficiency with the energy class “KlimaHaus Class A+”.
The supporting, earthquake-proof timber construction rests mainly on beams and pillars made from glulam. The individual ceiling constructions consist of horizontal glulam beams, whose task is to spread the horizontal loads to the central building core. This innovative solution has enabled Rubner Holzbau Bressanone to significantly reduce the space required for the structure while complying with stringent legal provisions (Eurocode 5). This gives much more room for the integration of noise and thermal insulation measures.
