Predikherenklooster Mechelen

Impressive rooms with excellent rest quality 

The Predikherenklooster Mechelen, dating from 1650, has an eventful history. In 2010 the city decided to restore the baroque building and use it as a library. The traces of past times were to be consciously preserved, additions and conversions were to remain visible. The new interior and the wall panelling in oak wood also fit so harmoniously into the existing building that old and new can coexist equally.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO Acoustic light  |  Ceiling Cladding 

    LIGNO Akustik light 3S_33_a70g_625-12-4_EI_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

    _EI Oak knotless  

    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
