The University of Hohenheim is setting standards when it comes to sustainability. It’s where architects Markus Lanz and Nicolas Schwager have created a real showpiece. All surfaces in the building feature pure wood. The PURA-NATURA HYDRO lacquer used on pine or fir is particularly matt, and it in no way changes the intrinsic colour of the wood. The surfaces are particularly scratch resistant, light fast and resilient – even in terms of footprints or common household chemicals. It may also interest you to know that this modern, water-based lacquer meets all significant specifications from certification systems including LEED (Leadership in Energy und Environmental Design), the German Sustainable Building Council (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen), the Assessment System for Sustainable Building (Bewertungssystem Nachhaltiges Bauen – BNB) and Dubai Green Building.
Conrad-Shipyard from Gdansk in Poland specialises in building luxury yachts of steel and aluminium up to 100 metres in length. The shipyard employs over 400 specialists in shipbuilding, complex technology, old craftsmanship and modern yacht building.
The wooden fittings in the skylounge, saloon, VIP cabins and owner suite were finished in light oak. The coating was done with our FANTASTIC-NATURA. The surface looks like raw, sanded wood and perfectly underlines the noble and exclusive overall impression of the interior.
These wooden fittings in a day nursery provide additional protection for the children, yet also need to be robust, durable and sustainable. A lovely project by our Hesse surface experts Schüller & Staudner from Puhlheim in NRW.
Superb design and high quality implementation. We particularly like their use of colour and shapes. The planner in charge had the brilliant idea of providing clouds to climb into on both levels.
Good to know: Coatings on wood always create very hygienic surfaces, since they involve smooth, highly cross-linked surfaces. Dirt can’t adhere so easily. There is of course also a need for regular cleaning – especially in day nurseries. But smooth coated surfaces are very easy to keep clean.
The new watersport centre in our home city of Hamm is a wonderful example of success in coating interior fittings. The warm wood of the counter, cabinets, floor and doors blend perfectly with the cool stone wall. The building sits directly by the water next to the Lippe and the Datteln-Hamm canal. It provides functional areas for the canoe club, but also has an appealing restaurant with an outdoor terrace. The practical implementation of the interior is the work of the company Innenausbau Schwienhorst.
Other companies involved in the execution include Noweck + Pahmeier Gmbh, Bernhard Heckmann GmbH & Co. KG and Dienstleistungs- und Finanzierungsgesellschaft der Stadt Hamm mbH.
