The department of wood science and technology is an extension of the Biotechnical faculty and is attached to surrounding buildings via an existing connecting corridor. A central hallway parts the rectangular building with dimensions 40 x 13,5 m in plan to professors’ cabinets in the southern from laboratories in the northern part. A glazed belt over the hallway is formed by an arc shaped roof and provides daylight to the interior.

As part of an educational institution in the field of wood the building itself also has a learning purpose. Apart from a base reinforced concrete slab the structure (walls and roof plates) is made of cross laminated timber (CLT) panels in visible quality which give the interior a special appearance and a worm ambient. The hallway is formed by an exposed CLT structure, arched timber roof beams and oak flooring. Along the hallway doors of cabinets are individually made from 10 different veneers (elm, pine, fir, cherry, oak, pear, ash, chestnut, walnut and maple) that follow from brighter to darker colours.

The sloping outer columns made of thermally modified spruce provide a sense of a forest through the large glazing on longitudinal southern and northern facades. The same thermally modified spruce is also used for the facade, windows and external doors. Compared to unmodified wood it enables a significantly longer life span of exposed timber elements.

The use of natural materials based on wood was desired in the project. Therefore cellulose and wood-fibre insulation boards were used to insulate the ventilated roof and ventilated facade.

The load-bearing structure is designed to allow two additional floors in case of a subsequent vertical extension.
