"Cashmere" surfaces in dry interior construction with Rigips

Rooms with smooth, rounded transitions between ceilings, floors and walls. Smooth, radiantly white surfaces and an interior design which skilfully featured just a few items of designer furniture, while it allowed the functional equipment of the house, like storage space, bathroom and kitchen equipment to blends into the surroundings white-on-white.

The vision of the client for his exceptional detached house must have sounded something like this, for the realization of which the team from DTB Trocken-Bau GmbH became involved and for which it was re-warded with the award of the Innovation Prize in the last BPB Rigips Trophy.

With the idea of allowing ceilings, walls and floors to flow optically into one another, the architects Herzog und de Meuron from Basle confronted the skilled tradesmen, first of all, with the question as to which materials and which processing techniques they should use to realize the form and to pro-duce a surface that was not only of a high quality, but also extremely durable. In the original invitation to tender, timber materials were foreseen as the load-bearing product in the concave moulding and wall areas. DTB Trocken-Bau GmbH, however, succeeded in convincing the architects and the client, in a model room they had made specifically, however, that sheets of plasterboard and tailor-made, specially made concave mouldings including high-quality trowel application would provide the ideal base for the planned high-gloss painting of all areas.
