Troldtekt panels have featured in the Folkehuset Absalon in Copenhagen, a building that is a fine example of the growing trend towards multi-use and multi-purpose cultural social centres.
Designed to promote community cohesion with a flexible space to accommodate a variety of activities and services, multi-purpose venues are used to support everything from sport, leisure and learning through to childcare, heritage, culture, elderly needs, tourism, pop-up shops and events.
This award-winning project designed by Arcgency architects has taken a former Church with its high ceilings and transformed it into a flexible community centre with ‘living-room’ feel.
This is where people of all ages come together for communal meals, yoga, dancing and cultural events.
Troldtekt panels are frequently specified for these types of projects as a key way to control acoustics. If acoustic absorption is wrong, discomfort and irritation will occur, caused by the reverberations.
If they are designed well however, the participant’s interest will increase. This is especially true if elderly people are using the space, because ambient noise can quickly make the environment uninhabitable for them.
Specified across the whole continent, the benefits of 100% Troldtekt natural wood wool panels include high sound absorption, high durability, natural breathability, low cost life cycle performance and sustainability, as documented by Cradle to Cradle certification at silver level.
The panels are also specified to improve acoustics in many different projects, such as schools, leisure centres, pools, commercial, private and public buildings.
Available in various sizes and in four grades from extreme fine to coarse, they can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour.
