Architectural beauty

Troldtekt Ikast Hjertet

A meaningful combination of function and aesthetics. Link between urban life and buildings. Art and design on ceilings and walls. Architectural beauty covers many aspects that – in combination – have a huge impact on our everyday life and well-being.

For this very reason, aesthetics and design are weighted in several of the leading sustainable building certification schemes. In this feature, you can read about DGNB Diamant – and about the WELL certification scheme, where beauty and design are two of the criteria.

There is also an interview with Jörg Schmitt, Innenarchitekt und Art-Direktor bei raumprobe. He explains how sustainability has become a player in the design of new products. And watch the film in which Troldtekt’s in-house architect Michael Christensen reveals the thinking behind the award-winning Troldtekt® design solutions.

Sustainability shapes the design of our time

For centuries, design has solved problems or changed something inadequate. In recent years, a new and distinctive stakeholder has joined the design process: sustainability.

According to Jörg Schmitt, interior designer and art director at the German materials agency raumprobe, sustainability is shaping both the era we live in and the design which adorns it.

DGNB Diamond shines on architectural excellence

A well-designed building is more sustainable because the users will take better care of it. But superior design can be difficult to certify. To remedy this, DGNB has developed a special distinction called DGNB Diamond.

The CEO of DGNB, Dr. Christine Lemaitre, explains how DGNB Diamond celebrates exceptional aesthetics and architectural quality in a building.

Architectural beauty for greater well-being

When we experience a meaningful merger of function and aesthetics, it increases our well-being. This is shown by research from Australia, for example.

Architectural beauty and design play such a major role that they are weighted in the US WELL Building Standard, which focuses on health and well-being.
