New building - acoustically effective and appealing in terms of design 

The cramped situation in the old parish office led to the construction of a modern new building directly in the centre of the village, next to the church and parsonage. Through floor-to-ceiling glazing all around, a lot of daylight comes into the large meeting room. Acoustic panels ensure good speech intelligibility, transforming the entire soffit of the roof into an acoustically effective and artistically appealing “wooden sky”.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO® Acoustic light  |  Ceiling cladding

    Product code: LIGNO® Acoustic light 3S_33_a70g_625-12n25-4_WTE_gb_buv
    Wood type

    Various wood species are available for the visible layer. For quality reasons, individual wood species cannot be configured for all profiles; for technical reasons, surface treatments are excluded for some wood species.

    Wood type

    _WTE Silver fir, economy  


    The visible layer is profiled with joints. The code for profiling indicates in millimetres: Element width, strip width (rounded, from/to if applicable) and joint width (rounded) as well as a letter identification for variants, e.g. with chamfered strip edges or with additional height gradation. 

    Note: Some profiles indirectly cause exclusions for other configuration options.


    _625-12n25-4 Slat profile "nature"  


    The face is subjected to a brushing _gb as standard, which produces a stronger or weaker structure depending on the type of wood and makes the surface less sensitive to scratches.  Alternatively, a smooth sanding _gs can be carried out, or on request a bandsaw cut _grimitated.


    _gb Brushed


    Depending on the type of wood, the optional application of a surface treatment is possible ex works. Individual colour finishes are always sampled for coordination. For elements in individual lengths, colour treatment is limited to max. 5 m length.


    _buv UV-protection stain 

    Room acoustics

    If the soffit of the element is to have a good sound-absorbing effect, the penultimate layer is configured as absorber _a50g. Otherwise, this layer is configured as a solid wood layer _a0.

    Room acoustics

    _a70g 70% Absorber
