redensification project
in Stuttgart

Wood is top when cities stock up

In times of dwindling land resources in the cities, it makes sense to use existing roof areas for redensification. With the two-storey extension of a house in a Stuttgart backyard, valuable living and working space was gained. Together with the plaster facade, the wooden extension appears like a monochrome monolith that makes no distinction between old and new, or between roof and wall surfaces. 

Configuration overview 

Components used 

  • LIGNO Rippe Q3  |  Ceiling component

    LIGNO Rippe Q3_210_r0_smw_z53_p0_a50g_625-20-4_LÄS_gb_b0
    Installation top 

     

    Whether the element is open or closed at the top is determined by the area of application. If, for example, the element is to be filled with fill on site as a storey ceiling or roof terrace (LIGNO rib Q3-x), its cavities are open at the top (feature _r0). To guide pipes at the top of the element, a cross grid (_r25, _r50) can be added to some superstructures. For roof superstructures, there is usually a flat closed finish _rg0 (LIGNO Block Q-x, LIGNO Block Q3-x or corresponding versions of LIGNO Akustik klassik).

    Installation top 

    _r0 Open, without cross grid 

    Statics 

     

    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.

    Statics 

    _150-210 Small span 

    Fire resistance 

     

    If fire protection is required, an additional layer is added below the web area (for elements with strip profiles _z26, _z53, _z80, for elements with board profiles Akustik klassik _k50g). Their height determines the fire resistance duration of the cross-section from 30 to 90 minutes. The fire resistance must be statically verified. If there are no requirements, the standard versions _z0 or _k50l are to be selected.

    Fire resistance 

    _z53 REI 60 High fire resistance 

    Cavity 

     

    Panel designs with strip profiles and additional layer can be configured with an additional cavity (_p26, _p53) below the additional layer for installation routing, fixtures or to improve sound absorption.Cables laid there then do not penetrate the fire-protective layer. If required, the cavity is filled with insulating material (_p26mw, _p26ha) to improve acoustic absorption. If no cavity is necessary, the characteristic _p0 is selected.

    Cavity 

    _p0 No cavity 

    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 

    _a50g 50 % Absorber 

    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.

    Profile 

    _625-20-4 Slat profile 

    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 

    _LÄS Larche knotless, siberian 

    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

  • LIGNO U*psi  |  Adjusting upright 

    Installation oben


    Ob das Element oben offen oder geschlossen ist, wird vom Einsatzgebiet bestimmt. Wenn das Element z.B. als Geschossdecke oder Dachterrasse bauseits mit Schüttung befüllt werden soll (LIGNO Rippe Q3-x), sind seine Hohlräume nach oben offen (Merkmal _r0). Zur Führung von Leitungen an der Elementoberseite kann bei manchen Aufbauten ein Querrost (_r25, _r50) ergänzt werden. Für Dachaufbauten erfolgt i.d.R. ein flächiger geschlossener Abschluss _rg0 (LIGNO Block Q-x, LIGNO Block Q3-x oder entsprechende Versionen von LIGNO Akustik klassik).
