    Wall as spatial partition and facade of a building gives impact not only to building aesthetic, but especially for the occupants convenience. In preference of wall material, especially for highrise apartments, hotels or offices, its mass/m2 and its noise reduction become an important criteria that must be considered by the building owner and architect in order to give a more lightweight construction and a more quiet interior for occupants convenience and privacy. In this paper, lightweight material that have been investigated is calcium sillicate board, as alternative to brick as common wall material. Findings in this research, by flexural strength test in normal condition, generally categorized in class 2 and 3. By soak-dry test as durability test for outside uses, there is no cracks found at all sample and the flexural strength decreases but less than 30%so that meet the SNI 7705:2011 standard. By warm water test, this material can not withstand against temperature at 60 degree centigrade or higher. By heat and rain test, this material can withstand the heat and rain condition.By noise reduction as sound isolating enclosure, this material unable to perform as noise barrier.
