Discover our view on some of the major challenges we are facing today.
Patients recover faster when healthcare facilities are thoughtfully designed
Beautiful architecture makes us feel better. The emotional impact of beautiful buildings can transcend the personal, even to the extent of improving the communities we live in.
South Harbour School in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a new public school designed and built with focus on energy optimisation and harmonising the connection between the school and its surroundings. The school addresses a need for modern educational facilities while creating a new public space by the waterfront.
With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.
Not all noise is bad, as any lover of loud music would agree. But unwanted noise, otherwise known as noise pollution, poses a real threat to human health and wellbeing.
We experience a room with all our senses. So shouldn’t architects spend as much time on how a space sounds as they do on how it looks?
More complex than it seems, the building envelope creates a comfortable environment indoors
Cities are growing. With that comes challenges. Urban flooding and fire fatalities being some of them. Intense rainfall overwhelms the capacity of the drainage systems in cities.
Our purpose is simple and compelling: to release the natural power of stone to enrich modern living. ROCKWOOL products save energy and water and reduce CO2 emissions, protect buildings from the spread of fire; reduce waste; improve acoustic comfort, building performance and aesthetics; and enhance Precision Growing, thereby improving the efficiency of fresh food production.
As a growing body of evidence reveals the damaging impacts of noise pollution, it’s important that we respond. Good acoustic designs that absorb sound help professionals and students to think and talk more easily, and at the same time create better environments for learning and healing.
