Gymnasium of Baccarat

Project name: Gymnasium of Baccarat

Project type: Sports Halls

Location: Baccarat, France (+Dom-Tom)

Architect: Salaignac-Camarra


All-in-one: Acoustic comfort, soft organic shapes and impact resistance


Acoustics and impact resistance were the most important properties for the ceiling at Baccarat Gymnasium, France. The architects at Salaignac-Camarra demanded a robust ceiling solution that would endure the impacts and ensure excellent sound environment in the sports halls.


To strengthen the acoustical design even more, the architects created a curved ceiling construction that would diffuse the sound in the room.


Knauf Danoline was able to provide the architect with a solution matching all the requirements – a ceiling lining called Contrapanel is designed to meet the toughest requirements for impact resistance in accordance with DIN 18 032 (EN 13 964). In addition, the ceiling panels are perforated providing excellent sound absorption. And to top it all, thanks to the flexibility of gypsum, Contrapanel can be curved to fit the organic shapes envisioned by the architects.
