01 product description
The new town hall of Hillerod is an extremely unusual building. Located away from the centre of the town, it has been constructed on the site of a former large farm. KHR architects won the competition to design the new 9000sqm administration building while also charged with converting and incorporating the original large barn and farm manager’s house in order to retain the area’s historical links.
Troldekt panels form all the ceilings and also clad the front of the balconies on each floor level. Project architect Mikkel Beedholm believes there is more focus than ever on the importance of ceilings. He thinks that if over-design and other disturbing elements are avoided, ceilings can create a sense of calm and unity between rooms and thereby complement the floor and wall surfaces.
Troldtekt panels are made from 100% natural materials; wood from Danish forests and cement produced by Aalborg Portland, Denmark. The structure of Troldtekt panels provides a basis for excellent sound absorption, and using Troldtekt ceilings will, therefore, reduce noise and provide optimal room acoustics. Troldtekt is available in a high number of combinations that vary according to surface structure, edge, installation system, colour, dimension and thickness.
