While architectural membrane facades (aka tensile fabric facades) are being used across the globe to address emerging trends in energy efficiency, one of the lesser discussed benefits is the differentiation power they have for a property. Architectural facades use technologically advanced fabrics to revitalize a building’s exterior and improve its performance. The result is an iconic property with a modern look and more comfortable interior.
Are you looking for ways to make your property stand out to potential tenants or investors? Custom designed architectural facades may be the cost-effective solution you’ve been searching for.
Modern Look & Iconic Designs
As buildings age, it’s common to begin considering ways to give the structure a facelift. However, full-scale renovations are often cost-prohibitive, leaving property owners settling with a patch-work approach to improvements. Architectural facades are an ideal way of modernizing outdated buildings without the cost of a traditional renovation.
Architectural facades offer endless design opportunities for improving a building’s aesthetics with fewer limitations. Using minimally invasive extrusions that attach to the building, tensile membrane architecture creates clean lines with less impact. By incorporating graphic printing, 3D design elements, and LED up-lighting, even older buildings can become iconic, highly sought-after structures in the neighborhood.
More and more brands are celebrating their environmental awareness as a way of standing above their competition, and commercial properties are no different. Architectural facades show your commitment to your green initiatives. By reducing the energy required to cool your building and lowering your building’s impact on the local urban heat island effect (the general heating that occurs when an area has more concrete than natural landscape), you support your environmental reputation.
Upgrades to Interior Comfort
Architectural facades also provide significant benefits to the interior of your building. Studies continually appear connecting office worker wellbeing with natural light. The membranes used in these facades allows diffused daylight to penetrate while blocking harmful UV rays – providing the best of both worlds. Even better – tenants can enjoy a glare-free workplace without sacrificing the view.
