- Industry Sectors
A facade is the principal front of a building, and is usually the most important aspect from an architectural stand point. A good facade catches the eye and sets the tone for the rest of the building. When you look at historical buildings such as Buckingham Palace or Saint Peter’s basilica, or you just walk through the streets of a theme park, commanding facades are used everywhere to captivate and set the tone of a property, and the group or organisation associated with it.
How do they help?
A high quality facade will have a significant effect on two aspects of a building, the appearance, and the performance.
In terms of the appearance, as the outer skin of a building, facades project image, authority and creative intent, and it is your chance to express who you are to passers by and any potential clients. A facade can make a huge difference to the success of a building and even greatly affect the value of a property.
Alongside the aesthetic factors, the facade of a building can have a big impact on the energy efficiency of that building and how well it performs. Properly rendered commercial facades will have sustainability credentials, which will keep a building insulated and make it much more energy efficient, keeping heat in and draughts out. This results in reduced energy bills and a much more comfortable place for people to work within.
