Facade and wall materials — trends 2023

The facade is the business card of the building, so it is important to choose the right materials with which it will be covered. Here both aesthetic and practical aspects count. Corten, perforated sheet metal, limestone and modern ETFE films will give buildings character, and innovative solutions, as well as appropriate insulation and installation systems, will affect durability and safety. So what elements to pay attention to when designing? What are the trends on the market of facade and wall materials? Welcome to the second part of the review of interesting proposals and innovative solutions!

Unique designs with ETFE film

In recent years, ETFE (tetrafluoroethylene ethylene) film has become increasingly popular as an innovative building material. One of its main applications is roofing for public squares, zoos and shopping malls. ETFE film produced by Vector Foiltec also allows the creation of unusual, lightweight, transparent facades, in the form of cushions, for example, or panels, which affect the unique character of architectural projects.

decoration for facades and roofs

The modern style of a building can be achieved with steel, which offers many interesting decorative possibilities for facades. Steel elements are particularly prominent on the walls of commercial and office buildings, as well as on houses, where they serve not only a decorative but also a protective function. How to attractively decorate exterior walls? For example, with trapezoidal sheet metal from Blachy Pruszyński. Particularly fashionable now are the seam sheet and facade corrugated profile.
