Innovative design combined with aesthetically appealing and sustainable solutions

In both the public and private sector, architects are seeking to combine innovative design with aesthetically appealing solutions tailored to the individual requirements of ambitious building owners and developers. At the same time, they aspire to improve people’s quality of life with first-class, sustainable building material and infrastructure solutions in line with the principles of circularity
In this edition of architectum we are putting the spotlight on private-sector and municipal projects that combine the ecological benefits of clay building materials with a focus on social considerations. It goes without saying that these examples of sustainable architecture for shared use have all been executed to an exemplary standard. Thanks to the incredible versatility of natural clay building materials, these structures are all unusual, innovative and unique examples of forward-looking construction projects.

„Discover how architects and developers combine a healthy atmosphere and design with the advantages of innovative and sustainable building materials ” - Heimo Scheuch, CEO Wienerberger AG.

Authentic and natural materials

As you browse through the pages of this magazine, you will discover how the consistent use of authentic and natural materials enabled the creation of public buildings and residential projects that combine a healthy atmosphere and striking design with the advantages of innovative and sustainable buildings materials. Energy-efficient, sound-insulating, pleasantly cool in summer, and warm and cozy in winter, the selected projects show how the look and feel of high-quality brick construction go hand in hand and can delight both those who view a building and its users.
I hope you enjoy reading about them in this edition!
