The specificity of squares, courtyards, pavements or passages requires the use of appropriate finishing materials, characterized by durability, durability and attractive design. For this reason, more and more architects have recently decided to use concrete as a material to finish places in public space. So what are the advantages of this solution?
Beautiful concrete buildings
One of the most important elements of the urban landscape is a properly developed surface. It is she who decides about the comfort and safety of movement and about the overall visual perception of the place. The publicly accessible public space is not only intensively exploited, and therefore particularly exposed to mechanical damage or stains, but also subject to adverse weather conditions. The concrete cubes and slabs, which are characterized by durability, low water absorption and resistance to frost, frequent temperature changes or sunlight, are perfect for it.
How does concrete architecture work in public space?
Concrete buildings are aesthetic at the same time, they provide wide creative possibilities and do not require complicated care treatments. In addition, some products are already protected at the production stage by system solutions that reduce their absorbability, and thus affect the reduction of spots, discoloration, efflorescence and greening.
Let’s also remember that contemporary buildings, characterized by simple, geometrized shapes and made of finishing materials of austere design, metal, glass, stone, will perfectly harmonize with the concrete surface. Available on the market, slabs and paving stones come in a variety of formats, shapes, textures and shades, allowing architects and designers to create surfaces that blend in with a variety of styles. A very durable material, which is also often used during construction in public space, is fiberglass reinforced concrete. It is characterized by much better properties than ordinary material and above all it is resistant to weather conditions.
