Why this mountain bike center is built of Brettstapel, and why North American builders should be using this stuff

1 of 10

Coed-y-Brenin is a hugely popular mountain biking destination in Wales, " the original mountain biking centre, where it all began. From retro, rocky, classics to modern contempory trails, there are rides to satisfy first timers to seasoned pros!"

Architype Architects have designed an extension to the original building that has a bike shop below and meeting rooms above. That's a fun use and it is an interesting building, but the real buzz is about the Brettstapel.
