The Tynningo Pool House – Natural Indoor Harmony
Product: BAUX Acoustic Tiles
This contemporary pool house offers year round relaxation, with stunning views over Stockholm’s archipelago. But creating the perfect indoor environment meant overcoming a few challenges. Architect David Wettergren was looking for a material that would reduce sound reflections from hard surfaces and parallel walls. He solved the problem by installing BAUX designs. The wood-wool BAUX tiles reduced sound reflections and added a finishing touch to this serene space.
The BAUX designs made a visual statement that the client loved. The organic textures helped soften the space and colours were chosen to create a sense of balance with the surrounding nature. An added bonus was that the wood-wool tiles reduced humidity. When heat and moisture combine, indoor pools can feel humid and stuffy. The BAUX designs absorb moisture creating a fresher feeling and a healthier indoor environment.
A sound environment
BAUX designs bring quiet harmony to the space by balancing non-organic surfaces with natural wood fibres that dampen sound reflections.
Wood-wool tiles balance air humidity by absorbing or emitting moisture. This creates a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment. The high pH value of the tiles means the wood-wool does not rot.
BAUX designs can be built around a number of geometric shapes, colours and tile sizes offering unlimited possibilities for creative expression.
Moisture and buildings don’t mix well, so any moisture absorption reduces stresses on materials and structures. Reducing moisture also makes for a better indoor environment. In open indoor spaces sound reflects off hard parallel surfaces, increasing noise levels. The BAUX designs solved both these problems and the result was a very happy client.
