Room acoustics in educational institutions.
The fact that the interplay of different materials is an architectural design element is no longer a secret. In addition to a vision, perfect implementation also requires the necessary planning sensitivity. The architects' office Baum-Kappler has this instinct - there's no question about that.
The "Thoner-Espan Elementary School" project in Nuremberg is the model student. when it comes to visually harmonizing acoustics and design. The challenging acoustic properties of exposed concrete and glass are balanced by wooden acoustic panels. This gives the interior the required spatial sound and at the same time represents a high-contrast and contemporary design element.
Our slimline GREEN panels were used in this project. The RELIEF version used here impresses with slats arranged at different heights, which give the panel some dynamics and break up the otherwise linear structures. At the same time, the acoustic elements optically bring some warmth into the rooms and, above all, make the entrance area look cozy and inviting despite the enormous room height.
