Hybrid Housing


Highrise housing has been a common solution to housing problems in east-Asian countries including China, shaping the image of high-density cities across the country. Moreover, people are starting to believe living in an highrise apartment with elevators is a ideal way of living. However, housing price has been skyrocketing and a series of problems are shown. Hybrid construction with timber and concrete provides a promising solution to these problems. It allows phrased construction to reduce financial presure, enables custom-design to meet specific and changing need, encourages long-term use instead of fluquent trades. It is even benificial for property industries, too, since almost every company is presuing high turnover to occupy the market. With hybrid construction, the constructing time may shorten significantly.

Ecological values

The government of China has recently altered its regulation to allow high-rise wooden structured buildings as an encouragement for developing timber buildings. The main reason lies in timber s ability of carbon fixation. With hybrid construction, the usage of concrete would reduce by about a third, and requires nothing seriously changed about the current way of building. It can be done NOW!
