Buildings are most commonly defined by their external appearance, based on uniqueness, and measure of performance and sustainability. A bespoke Facade design is an increasingly common way to achieve these outcomes. At Arcadia we partner with Architects and Engineers in early stages using our Connect Collaborate Construct process to support this journey in bringing your Vision to Reality.
This enables designers to venture into untapped design spaces when developing sophisticated and bespoke facades using the design and engineering expertise within Arcadia.
