As could not be otherwise, wood slat panels have also conquered the hearts of German architects and decorators. As in the rest of Europe, the new German architecture has been moving towards the use of more wood, both in the construction of houses and in buildings of all types. It is therefore quite normal to find more than just inner linings and wood ceilings. You can also discover walls and façades made with wood slat panels.

Environmental awareness, the need to provide more energy-efficient constructions, and the control of light or ventilation in buildings required by building standards such as the Passivhaus, are turning the wood slat panels into one of today’s booming solutions in the construction sector.

Below are 8 examples of the use of wood slat panels in the new architecture that is currently being developed in Germany.
