The aesthetics of a modern building are considered as important as the functionality. Occupants place a premium on built environments which match their lifestyles and needs. Aesthetics has a big part to play in creating these contemporary spaces which are increasingly in demand.

Areas where aesthetics are considered important include foyers, waiting rooms, restaurants, shops, cafes and offices. Considerations for creating environments which help achieve the function of the space, for example a calming decor in a hospital or aged care interior application, are also important.

Aesthetics in the built environment

Plasterboard can be curved to create imaginative architectural effects. With careful installation and proper framing methods, tightly curved walls and ceilings are possible, particularly with Knauf Gypsumboards. The use of perforated plasterboard can create ceilings with styled patterns, even seamless finishes with the use of Cleaneo. Solutions with unique texture and flexibility in colour are also possible with Heradesign.
