Coburg, Germany

The GLOBE COBURG, a multifunctional building for cultural and educational events, was opened in October 2023.

After 3 years of construction, the GLOBE COBURG cultural venue opened in autumn 2023. Inspired by the Globe Theatre in London, a multi-storey circular building was created from timber. The façade consists of vertical wooden slats that run around the entire theatre. The previous regional theatre is currently closed due to renovation work; the GLOBE is a temporary location for the regional theatre.

The plinth area below ground level is constructed from concrete. The suspended louvre façade is supported by a steel structure. Concrete brackets were required to transfer the forces into the basement walls.

In co-operation with the engineering office Knörnschild in Coburg, a special Egcobox® cantilever slab connection was developed for a reinforced concrete beam connection. Loads from the timber façade construction in front are transferred to the building foundation via the Egcobox®.

In addition to the Egcobox® cantilever connector, the Tubbox® column formers and the Egcoscal stair bedding were also supplied for the MAX FRANK construction project.
