Catholic Primary School Sydney

Warm atmosphere thanks to wood

Lignotrend goes overseas! The 1970s building in Sydney, converted into a primary school, is a typical example of the béton brut architectural style. The use of wood in floors, wall coverings, ceilings and furniture is the basis for the warm and inviting atmosphere that prevails in the building today. Colour has been avoided as far as possible, so that wood in its natural form can provide a peaceful background for learning. 

Configuration overview 

Components used 

  • LIGNO Acoustic light  |  Ceiling cladding 

    Produktcode: LIGNO Akustik light 3S_33_a70g_625-12-4_WTE_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 

    _WTE Silver fir, economy 

    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 

    _625-12-4 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
