Whether they’re residential or commercial, the way that buildings perform is really important for our health and general comfort – especially since we spend so much of our time in them. Yet we rarely consider their impact on our state of mind and overall sense of wellbeing. So what should we expect?
At Saint-Gobain, we believe that feeling good in a building is about having the perfect amount of light, the proper level of sound and the ideal temperature. It is about design and technology, beauty and safety, efficiency and sustainability. A good living place is adaptable to us, rather than the other way around.
Buildings have the potential not just to protect people from negative aspects of the world outside – such as noise, weather and pollutants – but also to make us feel happier and enable us to live, work and play in healthier internal environments.
Through our Multi-Comfort program, we’ve been exploring many different aspects of building design to understand how comfort works in real built environments. Stay with us and support us creating great living places everywhere!
