The French term façade comes from the old Italian word “faccia”, which means face. The face of the building, the façade, often is a stylish and well-designed part that shows the building’s architectural aesthetics.
However, the function of this building goes far beyond aesthetics. The façade is essential for protecting the interior from the outside elements and to maintain the energy performance of the interior to keep it safe and comfortable. This is why Den Braven is happy to share its knowledge with you. Knowledge with a focus on solutions that help you optimise the shell of the building. This is used first of all to extend the building’s life span, to create a more pleasant indoor climate, but also to meet the wish to pursue sustainability and to save on energy costs.
The function of the façade is, architectural aesthetics, energy performance, moisture, air and water infiltration, controlling/providing ingress of light and providing a comfortable living environment within the interior. The Den Braven‘s portfolio Air Tight Building Solutions & Passive Housing is part of the Den Braven ‘s façade portfolio. However, due to the importance of this subject, Den Braven does have a dedicated market segment landing page: Air Tight Building Solutions & Passive Housing.
