Design and Innovation in Architecture

Innovation must ensure that architecture is constantly evolving – functionally and aesthetically.

Most people spend 80-90 per cent of their time indoors, and when function and design complement one another, it can make a big difference to people’s daily lives and well-being.

For this very reason, aesthetics and design are weighted in several of the leading sustainable building certification schemes. You can read more about this on this theme page, where architects talk about their innovative approach to design.

Innovation is also a fundamental value at Troldtekt. On this page, you can see examples of Troldtekt design solutions that bring together acoustics, indoor climate and characterful design. And you can visit a number of buildings where the solutions have been installed.

From poor to superior acoustics

Andreas and his family moved from the USA to a very nice flat in the heart of Copenhagen. It was not until after they moved in that they realised how poor the acoustics were – a major problem for Andreas who suffers from hearing loss.

Watch Andreas explain how floating acoustic clouds and sound-absorbing art on the walls have created a peaceful home environment. You can also hear the Danish trend expert Mads Arlien-Søborg’s views on the new acoustic solution designed for the flat.
