HoHo (Wooden tower) Vienna
The world’s tallest wooden tower
Looking at HoHo Vienna from the outside, reminiscent of huge wooden blocks with a tree bark as a facade; the naturalness and, above all, the visibility of the wooden surfaces in the interior, are part of the core idea for the additional noticeable improvements and new tangible experience of the element of wood, in the world´s tallest wood structure high-rise. The HoHo Vienna is not only visually appealing, it also proves creativity when it comes to the use of space. The modular office structure allows individuality, and it can be modified at any time, transforming it without a lot of effort.
Simple construction system
The 24 floors and roughly 84 meters heigh, the requirements of efficient use, fire protection an struvtural planning are particularly sensitive to the plan. The deliberately simple construction system uses the stacking of four prefabricated serial components: columns, main beams, deck slabs and facade elements. The base surface of wooden composite ceilings, which are based on wooden supports in the final facade layer are attached to the core load-bearing structure of reinforced concrete. The wooden supports, in turn, form a common mounting element with the prefabricated outer wall modules made of solid wood, as well as the isolated exterior paneling in “earthy tones”.
Documentation and certification
HoHo Vienna is being build according to the TQB (Total Quality Building) evaluation system of the ÖGNB. Thus the wooden structure quality is documented and certified in all stages from planning, through construction, to use.
