Sustainability is not just taking into account the environment or climate change. It’s much more than that. It’s about ensuring that a project is futureproof. That the added value you create is worthwhile now and in the future.
Of course, green technologies such as solar energy, using circular and bio-based materials and smart technologies are an important part of this. But they are irrelevant if they don’t go hand in hand with state-of-the-art concepts and innovations. As a result, developments will still fully meet the needs of today, but also the needs in 50- or 100-years’ time.
Design plays an integral role in this. Buildings that are so appealing that they enrich the area and the user. In this way, design also adds value to the built environment.
