HoHo Wien: Groundbreaking for the Timber Tower

On October 12, the time has come. Clients, architects and engineers access to the blade, to officially celebrate the start of construction of the 84 meter high tower in Vienna’s district Seestadt Aspern. Thus HoHo Wien is currently the tallest wooden skyscraper with 24 floors in the world that is actually in construction. As general contractor, the handler group was chosen by builders cetus Baudevelopment GmbH. Completion of this RLP-Project is expected in 2018.

The conceptual approach of RLP Rüdiger Lainer + Partner combines an innovative wood construction system with an efficient building structure. The 84 meter tower shows the advantages of the wood hybrid system over pure timber construction. Reinforcing concrete cores support vertical circulation and supply. The timber construction is docked on to provide the volumes for actual building use. The combination of conceptual ideas makes sustainability possible: wood is easy on the environment.

Variable ground plans ensure that the building will be used for many years to come. Wood is a perceptible part of the spatial atmosphere and helps to make the user feel at home. Economy, ecology and added cultural value together create a communicating system. The tripartite high-rise creates a screen for the central square of a new city district in north-east Vienna. The mix of functions in the HoHo Vienna Tower ensures that “after six o’clock in the evening the lights do not go out”. The result is a lively center, whose sculptural and concise architecture accentuates the place.
