EGGER headquarters wins architecture award in the USA

Architect Bruno Moser bagged the American Architecture Prize for EGGER’s HQ in St. Johann, Tirol. The building was designed and constructed mostly out of EGGER’s wood products, demonstrating the company’s expertise in engineered wood for structural use.

Designed by Breitenbach-based architect Bruno Moser, EGGER’s HQ is a two-block, four-storey building made of prefabricated wood modules. They are connected via a glass-covered atrium and constructed mostly out of EGGER OSB 4 TOP boards. However, the design team was also able to use most of the company’s entire range of products for the construction, says Moser. The headquarters opened in 2015.

 

In fact, using modular wood frame construction is not new. Moser had previously designed other offices for EGGER: the administrative building in Radauti, the TechCenter in Unterradlberg, as well as the Forum in Brilon were built using the same modular construction.

In October, Moser bagged Bronze in the American Architecture Prize for his design of the headquarters in St Johann. The jury was convinced by the modular construction based on the EGGER OSB 4 Top board. The award ceremony took place on the 25th October 2016 in New York.
