Versatile used district meeting place

Der an drei Stellen verglaste Versammlungsraum vermittelt ein Gefühl, als säße man in einem Wintergarten. Die helle Deckenverkleidung in LIGNO® Akustik light trägt zu der freundlichen Raumatmosphäre und einer optimaler Raumakustik bei.
Für die LIGNO® Deckenverkleidung wurde ein sogenanntes nature-Profil verwendet, welches durch seine unregelmäßigen Leistenbreiten ein lebhaftes, organisches Erscheinungsbild schafft, welches den starken Bezug zur umgebenden Natur weiter unterstützt.
Der etwas dunklere Holzboden des multifunktionalen Raums bildet einen eleganten Kontrast zu der hellen LIGNO® Deckenverkleidung in Leistenoptik und den hellen Wänden.
Der pavillonartige Neubau mit Flachdach fügt sich durch seine Holzfassade und sein unaufdringliches Erscheinungsbild wunderbar in die umgebende, halbprivate  Gartenlandschaft ein.

The pavilion-like town house is small but elegant and is located in a prominent position in Pforzheim. The building has now established itself as a popular district meeting place where guests feel at home. The main room, glazed on three sides, skilfully mediates between inside and outside, while the light-coloured wooden surfaces and the wooden battens in front of the windows provide a calm background for the many activities that can take place here.

    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.
