Colored translucent facades represent one of the most compelling and adaptable concepts in contemporary architecture. Individually, these three words demonstrate distinct aspects of Danpal’s versatile command of research, design, and manufacturing. Color is one of the most dramatic ways in which an architect embellishes the design that takes form. Translucence exhibits the way that natural light from outside can become an internal feature of a home, office, shopping center, restaurant, or any building which embraces daylighting architecture. The façade itself is the face that the building shows to the world. In this article, we’ll explore the way in which colored translucent facades incorporate the beauty of natural light with the architectural feature which turns sunlight into a dazzling building component.
Color: How Colored Translucent Facades Create An Impression
Color needs no definition. Yet, as familiar as we are with the hues of our existence, we may fail to give color its due. We instinctively respond to the energetic mood inspired by the color red, but would we find red walls an inviting atmosphere in a hospital waiting room? We recognize that blue is a color that soothes, but if the goal is to create an ambiance of stirring vitality, we might choose another color. Even though we each have our own favorite colors, we often share similar responses when we see them.
Dynamic facades put color in the driver’s seat of architecture. Imagine if all the buildings in a neighborhood or a commercial complex were the same color. Even if the structures had different designs, they would lack the distinguishing identifying mark that sets one apart from the other. Colored translucent facades transform a building’s external appearance, making the most of its uniqueness.
Translucent: How Colored Translucent Facades Incorporate Light Into A Building’s Appearance
With more than half a century of experience behind us, Danpal has become known as a pioneer in manufacturing and design. This is especially true in the way we’ve blazed a trail with our daylighting architecture. Cutting-edge research and technological advances make it possible for architects to add natural light—not too much, not too little—into the interior spaces of buildings where we work and live. Externally, light shimmers and moves as a kinetic façade captivates the eye. Internally, we find that including light makes us feel better, giving us an enhanced feeling of well-being, and makes us more productive. All this, thanks to colored translucent facades.
Facades: The Architectural Feature That Adds So Much To A Building
While it’s true that colored translucent facades do not play a structure-supporting role in the construction of a building, that’s not really the point. A Danpal façade made of polycarbonate can provide protection from the elements. Polycarbonate is a remarkably strong and durable building material. It’s strong enough to stop a bullet, so you know that it’s able to defend a building from the damage that can come when weather unleashes rain, hail, wind, snow, and sunlight upon a structure. Polycarbonate is even able to shield a building’s occupants from the harmful effects of UV rays while they’re inside. Polycarbonate is the powerful material which gives a dynamic façade its superior performance capabilities. Impact resistance, maximum thermal conduction, energy efficiency… a colored translucent façade is more than just a building’s pretty face; with polycarbonate as a component, there are measurable benefits as well.
Now that you know how colored translucent facades can make the difference in a building’s image and performance, you can understand why Danpal products and systems are so highly regarded among architects and their clients.
