Model

This one-story house, made of cross-laminated and glued-laminated timber, will be awarded a prestigious certification for passive houses, a symbol of high quality standards in terms of energy efficiency and CO2 consumption.

Structure and Design

The house has an irregular floor plan and is based on a reinforced concrete floor slab. The wall and roof structures are made of cross-laminated timber. The roof structure is reinforced with class GL24h glulam beams to define a special inverted roof with sharp cantilevers standing out of the facade. In order to achieve high spans, the timber beams had to be reinforced with steel beams in some locations of the roof.

The finite element program RFEM was used to simulate the structural behavior of the entire system, including line hinges between the cross-laminated timber panels and the elastic foundation under the floor slab. The design according to the standard was performed with the add-on modules RF-LAMINATE and RF-CONCRETE Surfaces in order to optimize the thicknesses.

It was necessary to create a local model to evaluate the connection between the steel and timber beams on the cantilevers and to analyze the resistance of the fasteners (pulling out) under specific situations, such as wind pressure and suction.
