Environmental awareness, modern architecture, and health
The innovative project "TherapieStützpunkt" in Purgstall an der Erlauf (Southern Austria) was set up by the company Holzbau Strigl GmbH in 2017. It is a contemporary building with a barrier-free access ramp and a usable area of around 240m², distributed over 2 floors in a shell made of constructed wooden frames.
Modern architecture and ecological construction are combined in this project, with wood playing a major role.
The goal for this building was to create an optimal room for every patient and every therapist and taking care of the individual treatment.
A team of freelance therapists, with a wide variety of focuses in physiotherapy, is offering many different training methods in these rooms.
This range of advanced treatment methods and progressive technology is also reflected in the building. The latest building technology and the use of natural building materials represent environmental awareness.
The company Holzbau Strigl from Lunz am See attaches particular importance to the reduction of greenhouse gases in the implementation and use of every building. The materials used for the facade are environment friendly, made of wood, and the insulation is made of cellulose. During the implementation, great attention was paid to cooperation with regional companies. Short distances also protect the environment.
Timber construction by Holzbau Strigl:
- 32cm wooden stand construction + cellulose insulation in the intermediate chambers
- 10cm installation level filled with wood wool
- Ventilated facade for good moisture transport and weather protection
- total thickness 54cm
- U-value outer wall 0.098 W / m²K Door /
- Wooden windows with triple glazing
- UW value 0.71 W / m²K Building services
- description: - Air / water heat pump with comfort ventilation Drexel & Weiss X²A9
- Loxone Smart Home automation for shading and lighting
A heat-pump is used as the heating system for room heating and hot water preparation.
Heat recovery is used for the ventilation system.

Owner approach of sustainability
As a regional pioneer for ecological and environmentally conscious building, the company Holzbau Strigl, under timber construction master Adi Strigl, attaches great importance to the reduction of CO2 greenhouse gases in the implementation and use of every building.
With hot water heat recovery, underground storage for cooling in summer, and an energy source in winter, the building not only saves up to 85% valuable energy but instead receives a healthy indoor climate.
Regionality is capitalized here. Therefore we prefer to work with other regional companies. This allows for short distances - which in turn is good for the environment and also enables us to work efficiently and economically. But the human factor also plays a big role here, because we like to work with familiar people and their own products.
Wood plays a key role in the union of modern architecture and ecological construction.
The aim of this project was to provide for patients and therapists alike to create an optimal space.
The building is accessible through a covered access ramp, and the rooms are barrier-free and flooded with light.
Space has been created here for every type of therapy: from sports to physical therapy and massage therapy, all applications can be found in these rooms. And so these innovations are also reflected in the building.
A contemporary building with a shell made of constructed wooden frames gives this building its special appearance. The building blends in harmoniously with the surroundings, without being intrusive. And especially in the evening, it is an atmospheric eye-catcher with its wooden facade. A ventilated facade was constructed here for good moisture removal and weather protection. The wooden windows are made with triple glazing.
If you had to do it again?
At this point we can say that this project speaks for great success from all sides.
The building is so popular, many therapists want to work there and also the patients are very happy. So the building will be expanded in the near future.
Building users opinion
Statement from Mr. Spieslehner, building user and owner:
“Our therapists feel very comfortable in the new building that was built in 2017. The well-structured and barrier-free rooms are flooded with light, and together with the natural building material wood, create a pleasant and beautiful workplace. "

Life Cycle Analysis
Indoor Air quality
Health & Comfort
Purgstall an der Erlauf is a nice little town in Southern Austria and is very green.
The railway station is not far away, about a 10 min walk.
But of course, most people come to this building because they suffer from physical discomfort, so they come by car. Therefore we have a parking space directly in front of the building.
A little shopping mall with some restaurants is just 5 minutes walk away from the TherapieStützpunkt.
parking space for cars and bicyles is directly in front of the building
