Customer Project

In 2021, a timber pavilion called 'Into the Woods' was built in the garden of the Swiss Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was created on the occasion of the annual festival '3 Days of Design'.

Model Data

Model

Blumer-Lehmann AG, a timber construction company from Gossau, Switzerland specialising in free-form structures, was responsible for the structural design and the timber construction. The Blumer-Lehmann engineers used RSTAB for the structural analysis.

Structure

According to the plan, the pavilion will not remain in the garden of the Swiss Embassy. Therefore, the timber structure was designed in such a way that it can be dismantled and assembled elsewhere. The design by Kathrin Susanna Gimmel, a Swiss architect and office partner of JAJA Architects, is reminiscent of trees. The structure consists of three sturdy trunks, consisting of laminated veneer lumber elements. They merge into the treetops at the top.

All three trees have the same structure. The laminated veneer lumber elements are connected to each other by means of beech dowels arranged in a circle, thus forming a decorative detail. The 'tree trunks' are anchored to the ground by long screws. The pavilion is covered with a water-repellent membrane that only rests on the edge and in the middle of the trunk. The horizontal tensile forces are correspondingly large here.
