Urban redensification in timber construction

In Tübingen, an administration building from the 1960s was converted and extended by a residential and commercial building: Ten apartments and 1,490 m² of office space were created in a central location. A two-story residential loft in timber construction was added on top of the existing building. Its floor plan is built around a "wooden box" containing the staircase, kitchen and bathroom. The cladding with LIGNO® Akustik panels in oak helps the open-plan living to achieve good room acoustics and, with its 3D profiling, creates a very lively-looking wall image.

    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

    _EI Oak knotless


    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.


    _625-12n25-4:3D 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.

    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
