These Apartment Designs have no limits when it comes to Modernism
This architecture is inspired by the city’s classic steep-roofed shapes, which are interpreted in finely detailed modern materials done by Warren and Mahoney-designed luxury apartments crafted by Summitbuild. Due to a limited amount of working space on a busy street, prefabricated XLam panels were an obvious option for construction.
The entire building structure above the ground floor slab comprises XLam CLT, with some integrated steelwork. Walls are generally 3-layer 75mm thick panels, doubled for inter-tenancy acoustic separation. A Drossbach-type connection system was used at ground floor level, with walls pre-drilled in the factory to receive steel dowels cast into the concrete slab and then epoxy-glued to the timber. XLam TwinSkin cassette floors span up to 5.6m. TwinSkin roof panels incorporate factory-installed thermal insulation within the panel cavities, giving a high R-value and greatly simplifying installation of the zinc-clad roof structure.
