ASI Reisen Alpinschule Innsbruck

A house made of wood, glass and wanderlust

The Swedish-Tyrolean architects Snøhetta designed the new company headquarters for the tour operator ASI near Innsbruck. Great emphasis was placed on sustainability. The innovative timber construction includes 65 environmentally and people-friendly workplaces and is now considered the company's “green nest”. In addition to the many glass elements and the 118 climbing plants, wood is an important component. It is particularly beautiful in the form of acoustic panels, as well as the floors and windows.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO Acoustic light   | Ceiling cladding

    Produktcode: LIGNO Akustik light 3S_33_a70g_625-12n25-4_WTL_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 Silver fir knotless, patterned

    Profile


    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.

    Profile 

    _625-12n25-4 Slat profile

    Structure


    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.

    Structure

    _gb Brushed

    Treatment


    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.

    Treatment

    _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
