The handling with wood has a long, thousand-year-old tradition in Pfelders. Inspired by the fascinating arrangement of fresh cut wood on the sawmills bin locations, which is light-transmissive and pervious to air, created the parameters of permeability and parallel closeness as the concepts´ basis.
The floor plan consists of three parts – hall, foyer and fly brake – whereby these parts are combining in their totality to a big space continuum and therefore lead to generosity and functional flexibility.
In the middle of the building all features arrange – kitchen, storage, sanitary rooms and site development – so they can operate the space continuum of fly brake – hall – foyer. In addition, the kitchen is brought to the floor plan, so that a flexible handling is given for small events taking place in the foyer as well as for big ones happening in the hall. Furthermore formation of a bar each is possible. The sanitary rooms, reachable from the foyer are separated through an anteroom. Therefore the foyer cannot be impaired by the activity in front of and in the toilets. The building structure from the outside is separated into two volumes – hall and foyer – each with floor plan orthogonally. They show twists in their vertical direction, raked differently. Thereby the foyer is higher and orientated vertical, the hall more horizontal.
The facade appears as a big connected room, which seems to be an outside closed construction by day. For this reason, the church stays the principal magnet. In the evening the light is gleaming of the building to show people, that there is an event inside. The multipurpose hall is opened up with a generous scale leading to a forecourt. There the event in the inside could be spread, when good weather conditions are given. The second, barrier-free allotment occurred from the street level by lift and side stairs, which also can be used as access for delivery man and service outside of operation time.
The selection of materials limits to wood and glass, whereupon the wooden facade surely dominates. The planks of the facade not only provide for natural shading inside but also offer a free view in every height to the surrounding village and landscape.
In the use of wood and glass also in the interior rooms, the glass elements´ division in several pieces and the installation of acoustic panels will also minimize the sound propagation.
A quick and smooth construction works´ implementation can be ensured through the high degree of prefabrication of the wood and glass elements.
