Wooden panels as a design counterpart to glass
The extension of the WTO headquarters is located on the shore of Lake Geneva with a view of Mont Blanc. The lobby and a restaurant with a terrace are located in the base zone of the crystalline, transparent structure, with administration and office areas above. The rooms radiate a quiet, open atmosphere. The high proportion of glass is counterbalanced by profiled wooden panels on the ceilings.

Note: Some profiles indirectly cause exclusions for other configuration options.

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.
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.

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.
