Modern and ecological: Family builds house made of LIGNO® in Eschenz

Planned with the landscape

Actually, Seline and Reto Russenberger had no intention of moving out of their 4.5-room flat in Stein am Rhein. But when they had the opportunity to buy a beautiful plot of land in neighbouring Eschenz on Lake Constance, they seized the opportunity and decided to build their own house. It was to be a healthy wooden house, because a good indoor climate and sustainability are very important to the couple with two small children. Together with the planners and timber construction experts from Stamm & Meyer in Schleitheim, they realised a cosy family home that was perfectly tailored to them - built as a climate-controlled timber house with walls made of cross laminated timber from Lignotrend. Ecology, quality and lasting value are thus guaranteed.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO® Uni Q3  |  Wall component  

    Product code: LIGNO® Uni Q3_110_625_NSi


    The height of the load-bearing webs of the element is variable and determined according to static requirements from load and span. Within the framework of this configurator, the selection is limited to four height ranges. A more precise definition is made later during pre-dimensioning or verification with the LTB-x calculation programme. Bulk volume and/or necessary space for installations can also be decisive for the height.

    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.



    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.

  • LIGNO® U*psi  |  Insulation joist

    Product code: LIGNO® U*psi Fg_200
    Insulation joist

    The lower the U-value of a component and the lower the psi value of the details, the less heat is lost. This is precisely where the U*psi cross-laminated timber insulating uprights from Lignotrend come into effect: They implement high insulating thicknesses in natural timber and minimise thermal bridges.
