Creating a world that’s more environmentally friendly is achieved in lots of ways. At Corruven, we make our contribution by creating materials that can be used as a part of sustainable architecture projects. If this is something you’re interested in, it’s always worth exploring some of the latest trends in sustainable architecture as a whole.

Sustainable architecture with tiny houses

One of the greatest sustainable architecture trends to take the world by storm is the tiny house concept. As we’re seeing society move toward minimalist living, residing in a tiny house is plausible for many people.

 

Tiny houses are a way of living for peoples that want an environmental friendly & sustainable lifestyle. 

This trend focus on many points such as: - reducing ecological footprint - consuming less - fewer ressource to build - using less energy to operate 

At Corruven, we envisage the tiny homes trend seizing on sustainable materials too. As a result, those who build them will benefit the planet in more ways than one.

Business buildings that focus on health and well-being

Did you know that urbanization has resulted in people spending more than 90% of their time indoors? While there was once a time when we worked primarily outside, now our lives are an indoor affair. Many of us will go from working in an office to sitting in a car, and then to remain in our houses.

Unfortunately, living a life that’s so focused on being indoors isn’t good for our health and well-being. A lack of sunlight, constant exposure to synthetic materials, and a lack of greenery disrupt everything from our sleep to our mental health. Fortunately, there’s a sustainable architecture trend that aims to overcome all this.

 

Green building not only create positive impacts on our climat and natural environment, it also improve our quality of life. Better indoor air quality can have a significant improvement in cognitive function. Additionally, sunlight is conducive to reducing depression. It’s also possible to propose that replacing non-sustainable materials with Earth-friendly materials could have a positive impact.
 

As many businesses are interested in enhancing their employees’ mental health, organizations are turning toward greener workplaces. This includes offering bigger outdoor spaces, sunlight-filled rooms, plenty of greenery indoors, and using sustainable materials.

In some cases, businesses are choosing to use inner courtyards that are full of the plants and trees they find local to their area. The idea behind this is that it makes it easier for employees to socialize in an outdoor space, thereby reducing the amount of time they spend inside.

At Corruven, we make sustainable architecture materials in St-Basile, NB. If you’re an architect who’s driven by the thought of producing eco-friendly buildings, we want to hear from you.
 

Using your ideas and our materials, we could make an impact on the future of building development together. To learn more about what we do, contact us by calling 506-802-7022.
