Summerhouse Legge

A unique rammed earth building in Falkensee

As structural designers and specialists, ZRS engineers are always significantly involved in the construction of rammed earth buildings. It is often the spectacular projects that make it into the media, such as the new building of the company headquarters Alnatura, which we were allowed to accompany with support for the design, approval and construction supervision process.

It is therefore even more pleasing that the small rammed earth summerhouse designed by the architect Gereon Legge is now attracting more attention. Lehmhaus_und_Dachausbau_in_Falkensee_von_Gereon_Legge

What is unusual here is that the rammed earth extends into the ridge. This was not only a challenge for us structural designers, but also for the contractors led by the Berlin Earth Builder Jörg Depta.
