Plan Libre 2.0 \ Serge Schoemaker Architects

• January 15, 2012

Dutch-based practice Serge Schoemaker Architects has designed a modular wooden building system: Plan Libre 2.0. The environmentally sustainable construction can be assembled within one day and dismantled for reuse or recycling elsewhere.

The clear architectural form of the structure is based on a natural solution for structural efficiency, and creates a unique spatial quality. The series of three-level high wooden pillars will be fixed into the base, gaining their strength in the connection with the upper floor segments.

The central void both reduces the overall construction dimensions and brings light into the center of the building. The patio can be used as green area and offers panoramic views through the building.

The circular structure consists out of six laminated wooden pillars and twenty-four prefabricated floor elements, made with a timber frame construction. The building is ten metres high; its diameter widens from twelve metres at the base to seventeen metres at the top.

The wooden construction could function as a public viewing platform in a natural environment, a temporary or permanent pavilion and as a spacious contemporary patio house.

The architectural office aims to realize its first prototype in 2012.
