HasleTre Office / Oslotre architects
Textual content material description supplied by the architects. HasleTre is situated on the outer fringe of the central metropolis of Oslo, Norway. The design transient was to develop an environmentally nice, versatile, and revolutionary enterprise developing, using elements which might be doable to disassemble and reuse. The mission significantly reduces common GHG emissions (59%) and is licensed to BREEAM NOR Fantastic commonplace.
HasleTre is a 3000m2 office developing over 5 flooring along with basement and roof terraces. The developing is using a mass timber structural system. The 5×5 meter grid system makes for versatile plan choices; cell workplaces, open workplaces, meeting rooms, smaller rooms, and so forth.
Two key design strategies have been central to retaining the development’s second-hand reuse, flexibility, and financial price. The primary and secondary constructing is designed using large commonplace manufacturing codecs and dimensions, with as few perforations to the raw elements as doable. This allows nearly no supplies waste in manufacturing, maximizing transport volumes and dashing up the assembly. Glulam columns and beams are joined with beech dowels, and CLT partitions and slabs are mounted using X-fix connectors resulting in a constructing system with out the need for steel or aluminum joints, which leads to a documented low cost of steel use of better than 70% all by way of the developing.
Secondly, the occasion of technical and structural choices affords flexibility in use all through life, and simple disassembly on the end of life, the entire whereas retaining a second-hand price of components and provides. The mission moreover has a giant portion of reused and upcycled provides; air circulate aggregates, acoustic ceiling plates, sanitary installations, and flooring in secondary rooms. 60% of the furnishings is upcycled, and 40% is made with biodegradable provides or from industrial waste like plastics harvested from the ocean.
The within is to a giant diploma constructed of uncovered picket, cork and wool elements, with surfaces mounted with picket nails instead of screws. By benefiting from the hydrothermal properties of these natural provides, the developing targets to reduce energy use and enhance the tenants’ sense of delight, focus, and low cost of sick depart.
By prioritizing prime quality and ease in every building and interiors, HasleTre is designed for durability, and to facilitate shifting spatial needs, technical requirements, and preferences. The developing was constructed at file tempo, and after an entire of 9 months it was ready for its new occupant Save The Children Norway, an organization for youths’s rights.
This mission has required a collaborative effort from all people involved, along with builders, contractors, and planning authorities. It proved a helpful finding out experience for all occasions involved and there’s a need to encourage others to contemplate reuse, every in the mean time and for the long term.The developing was awarded the Norwegian Developing Enterprise´s Timber Developing of the Yr award in March 2023.
