Perfectly healthy

Bravi pharmacy

Many passers-by were astounded by the three-storey “House for Health,” which was erected in the span of a mere month at the busy Via San Zeno in Brescia, Italy.

Rubner Objektbau was in charge of the construction project, and together with Studio 55, they implemented one of the most innovative and, in terms of building biology, progressive buildings in Brescia. The static dimensions are based on a massive glulam truss skeleton structure. The outer envelope was completed by a timber frame wall.

In a minimum of time, the 4,000 m³ timber building was erected. The energy consumption of this “climate pharmacy” is one third lower than the energy consumption of a conventional building of the same size.
