Petrus Community Wiesloch

Timber construction award for community centre 

Die spannungsreiche Wechselwirkung zwischen Stabtragwerk und Fläche verleiht dem Raum eine hohe architektonische und atmosphärische Qualität, welche durch den Einsatz von LIGNO® Akustik light noch unterstützt wird.
Die großzügige Verglasung lässt viel Licht in das Innere des Flachbaus und setzt die verwendeten Holzmaterialien so besonders gut in Szene.

The community hall and courtyard of equal size form the centre of the new community centre. The building was awarded the Baden-Württemberg timber construction prize in 2018. Above all, the sensitively worked out construction of the event room with its exciting interaction between the supporting framework and the surface area was praised for its high architectural and atmospheric quality and the harmonious spatial proportions.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO® Acoustic light  |  Ceiling cladding 

    Product code: LIGNO® Acoustic light 3S_33_a70g_625-12-4_WTL-i_gb_b0
    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

    _WTL-i Silver fir knotless, patterned  


    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.


    _625-12-4 Slat profile 


    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.


    _b0 Untreated 

    Fire behaviour

    Few configurations can be configured with a flame-retardant surface. This may result in a modified element structure, greater thickness or the need for measures in the area of the substructure.

    Fire behaviour

    _B-s2-d0 Fire retardant surface 

    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
