Outline

A wooden skeleton/infill structure suitable for small-scale buildings such as two-story houses, shops, etc. The structure consists of timber assembly continuous columns and connecting beams arranged to connect those columns in a hollow cross section, composed of high-strength wooden adhesive panels and laminated wood, with connected first and second floors. The height of the connecting beams can be set freely. And the atrium can also be designed freely. Therefore, it is easy to alter the arrangement to suit the lifestyle and different stages of life or to respond to changes in usage. In addition, since the structural load-bearing elements are integrated into the assembled columns, what is achieved is a building that is easy to inspect and repair and can be used for a long time.
