A load-bearing wooden structure is built with large beams placed at a large distance between centers. The connections between the uprights and beams of the floor / roof are made with metal plates housed in millings and fixed with metal bolts or pins. The stiffening of the construction is obtained by means of these fasteners, diagonal steel tie-rods and also partition walls and facades without load-bearing function. Thus this construction system allows to divide the interior spaces at will. The external and internal plugging / cladding of the wooden skeleton can be made of wood, glass, raw earth, prefabricated elements, etc.
