Outdoor spaces – trends 2023
Times and trends are constantly changing, and with them the approach to designing a functional public space. Today's architects are concerned not only with creating buildings that will impress with extraordinary aesthetics, but above all will improve the quality of life and be the best choice for the environment.
This makes ecological solutions cease to be a mere curiosity and become a strong trend and commitment for the architectural industry. Not surprisingly, the trend for sustainable construction, which responds to modern environmental needs and social demands, is now reigning supreme. In addition to this, the approach to the production of building materials, including fine concrete, is also changing.

Green solutions for public spaces
Urban development poses new challenges for the architecture industry; it is now most important to take care of the health and well-being of residents, as well as to minimize negative climate change or excessive consumption of natural resources.
In addition to this, regulations are also changing. New guidelines are emerging every now and then, posing new challenges for architects and developers. In addition, public awareness is also advancing; consumers are becoming more educated and expect green solutions that improve the quality of life and positively impact the local environment.
Fortunately, meeting new expectations and challenges is possible thanks to the rapid development of modern technology, which make it possible to create innovative building materials that were previously undreamed of.

In addition to this, the DASAG brand has another eco-friendly product; Indigo Prato, Promenada Prato and Indigo Bello slabs, which have a high solar reflectance index (SRI). This makes these concrete slabs not absorb the heat emitted by the sun, which contributes to reducing the urban heat island. Their application over a large area (such as terraces or rooftops) brings great benefits. It can help combat the problem of perpetually hot cities, and significantly reduce the costs associated with cooling buildings.
DASAG's innovative fine concrete products not only fit perfectly into the green building trend, but, above all, are a real answer to the growing demand for environmentally friendly products.
