Old cowshed becomes stylish winery

In the wine region of south-eastern Styria, a young winegrower and Berlin architect Mascha Ritter converted an old cowshed into a contemporary winery. The visible, traditional wooden supporting structure acts as a guiding design element in all areas of the building. The striking wooden beams are particularly effective in the ground-floor tasting area. Here, the room, which is largely clad in silver fir, extends high up into the gable, giving it an almost cathedral-like appearance. This expanse of space is countered by the soft wooden surfaces, which create a homely, natural atmosphere. Overall, all elements of the building are united by one guiding principle: the effort to combine the traditional with the contemporary. Instead of forced modernism, the focus is on honest, functional and stylish architecture that combines past and present.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO® Akustik light  | Acoustic cladding 

    Product code: LIGNO® Akustik light 3S_33_a70g_WTL_625-12-4_b0 _gb
    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 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

    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
