Troldtekt: Modern materials for modern schools

  • 14 Apr 2023

A new €74 million, 23,500 square metre school has been built in Freising, Germany – Troldtekt’s wood wool acoustic panels feature.

This school is a showcase of how modern design and educational requirements can be designed in harmony to create a lively and vibrant learning space filled with space and light.

Designed by architects Fuchs and Rudolph Architecture, the combined primary and secondary SteinPark-Schulen school comprises 44 classrooms and ten specialist learning centres, along with a triple-field sports hall, auditorium, outdoor classrooms and playing fields. It is linked via a central atrium, daylight floods the interior through large windows.


To control the acoustics and the problems of reverberated sound from the large windows and hard floors, Troldtekt’s wood wool acoustic panels were specified across the ceilings in the classrooms, open spaces and dining halls to ensure optimal acoustic performance and to create a pleasant, relaxed learning environment for staff and students.

Finished in a white 101 colour, the ultrafine panels complement the window frames and furniture of pale wood and the light-coloured floors.

Founded on the Cradle-to-Cradle design concept and recently attaining Gold Certification, Troldtekt’s natural and inherently sustainable panels are available in a variety of different surfaces and colours and contribute positively to a building’s BREEAM, DGNB and LEED ratings.

In addition to their high sound absorption and tactile surface, they offer high durability and low-cost lifecycle performance. Available in various sizes and in four grades, from extreme fine to coarse, the panels can be left untreated or painted in almost any RAL colour.
