Various Construction Types
I made the decision to use different forms of CLT throughout the building to give different environments in each area. CLT walls differ from the voided spaces to the rooms that house the activities. The void spaces would be ribbed CLT to emphasize the feeling of a reclaimed space, showing the raw exposed structure with the circulation taking place in these spaces, increasing the feel of the void spaces as an area you can pass through. Then the roomed areas were to be solid CLT, adding a bit of security to them and a feeling of them being built into the current structure. Enclosing them a bit more when leaving the large voided areas.
As for the wall build up this again looked at using materials that would be less harmful on the environment in the long run as well as very low maintenance. Brick for the cladding that would be recalled where possible, while providing the benefit of very little maintenance in the future of the building. Cork for the insulation as it is effective at this purpose, natural and comes with various benefits of resilience, making it a grate long term solution.
