The term “sustainability” has become popular across a wide range of businesses. It is therefore not surprising that sustainable design has emerged as a key factor in how buildings and cities are being created, given that construction accounts for a significant portion of the world’s energy use.
How Hedonistrian builds?
When thinking about new development projects, Hedonistrian team takes into account many factors to create healthy living space while attempting to minimize adverse effects on the environment, energy use, and use of human resources.
A building’s materials, construction techniques, resource usage, and overall design all exhibit sustainable architecture. Although it must be both aesthetically pleasing and useful, the space must be built with the goal of attaining long-term energy and resource efficiency.
One of the trends has thus become the use of natural, sustainable, and traditional materials in construction. Among the materials that are sustainable and look great in construction is the traditional stone for which the architecture of Istria and Dalmatia is known. Among the natural and sustainable materials are wood, mass timber, cork, and even mud, which with sedimentary stone can make a great and modern design on interior walls.
In addition to natural materials that promote sustainability in architecture, technologies that promote energy renewal are also becoming increasingly important. Moreover, in Croatia, to build a new property and receive a permit, you must have a certain percentage of energy renewable sources that will be used.
One of the projects where sustainable principles are applied is Gornji Srbani – a project where the old meets the new, but also Monaški vrh and Maj Townhouses. Take a look at all Hedonistrian Properties upcoming projects.
