Silente Technology: the innovative system solution

Silente Technology: the innovative system solution

Bauwerk’s Cleverpark Silente technology is an innovative system solution that guarantees reduced ambient sound and optimum impact sound improvement thanks to its successful combination of Bauwerk Parquet products with the Silente ambient and impact sound insulation. Both the Cleverpark and the Multipark Silente products come with the underlay already attached.


The innovative Silente technology achieves a significant reduction in the level of ambient sound as well as impact sound. Independent testing institutes (IHD Dresden, ÖTI Vienna and EMPA Dübendorf) have verified this claim and confirmed the excellent test results.

The Bauwerk Silente ambient- and impact sound insulation underlay does not age and acts as a separating layer, facilitating swift and easy dismantling if the floor is to be taken out. The underlay is odourless and free of unwanted emissions, creating a healthy living environment. Cleverpark Silente and Multipark Silente have been produced in the proven Bauwerk quality in Switzerland.

Products featuring the new Silente technology provide living comfort that meets highest expectations: Easy on the nerves through sound reduction technology and easy on the joints thanks to the elasticity of this acoustic mat. All Bauwerk products featuring the Silente technology are made entirely of materials that are safe for humans and the environment. Thanks to the closed circuit processes in the production and life cycle of Cleverpark Silente and Multipark Silente, Bauwerk is able to preserve valuable timber resources and act responsibly in the interests of future generations.

Bauwerk is the first and only wooden floor manufacturer to have been awarded the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold certificate for its Silente products. Thanks to production optimisation at the St. Margrethen plant, all products made in this factory (50% of the entire Bauwerk portfolio) will meet the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Bronze standard as of 2016.

Five-stage Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Scorecard. As the name implies, the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ certificate does not begin with the finished product. The comprehensive certification process involves five areas: material health, material reutilisation, energy, water and social responsibility. Depending on the results in these defined areas, certification is awarded in the categories ‘basic’, ‘bronze’, ‘silver’, ‘gold’ and ‘platinum’

Cradle to Cradle Certified™ thus goes a lot deeper than most other certifications. Accredited experts assess the holistic production process, composition, use and reutilisation of all production components. EPEA Switzerland acts as knowledge trustee in the complex certification process, assessing suppliers’ compositions along the entire procurement chain down to the molecular level. Hence Bauwerk offers architects and home builders more than versatile modern parquet flooring. Bauwerk’s Cradle to Cradle Certified™-products guarantee top recoverability, security and the safe knowledge that they contribute to the health of humankind and nature alike.

Cradle to Cradle® is an innovative, positive and integral approach to sustainability that does not start from the reduction but from the reuse of raw materials according to the motto: «waste is food».

Urban villa in Zurich

Urban villa in Zurich

Nineteenth- and 20th-century urban villas are just as much a part of Zurich’s cityscape as Lake Zurich or the white-and-blue trams. One of these is the Villa Allenmoos in Zurich Oerlikon. The urban villa was built in 1908 as a three-family house, and is a shining example of villas of this period with its hipped mansard roof, bays and towers.

In the Lugano municipality of Paradiso on the northern slope of the San Salvatore, maurusfrei Architekten have designed an upmarket residential complex that offers panorama views of the lake and distinct added value. Using the steep terrain, the architects offset the apartment volumes against one another within a terraced structure.
