Akanksha Gupta, Partner at Vijay Gupta Architects, emphasises sustainability, energy efficiency, and upcoming technologies.

Sustainability in interior design

Sustainability isn’t just an extra layer; it’s a way of life. This is especially true in architecture, where designing to have a beneficial impact on the future should be a requirement. When choosing materials, consider their longevity, the place they will be used, and how they will be used there. The tendency to use imported materials just for their aesthetic worth should be considered, and if employed, they should offer value to the area. Longevity also entails considering how a design might be long-lasting while conforming to time constraints and the needs and wants of the present and future.

Sustainability is a key criterion in all breakthroughs in building construction technology or material innovation research, with each new material claiming to be more sustainable than the last. Bamboo as a building material is also being tested extensively. It’s also worth noting that all construction materials are now divided into several groups based on their sustainability standards. However, there frequently needs to be more connection between innovation and execution.

Contemporary materials and technologies

We must choose materials correctly, with long-lasting and sturdy materials taking precedence over others. Materials that are relatively new to the market should be carefully chosen since some may require extensive maintenance or be sensitive and require rapid refurbishment. Many materials on the market employ recycled raw materials in their manufacture, which can be an essential consideration in ensuring that sustainability is addressed at its root. Modern materials and technology can undoubtedly contribute to sustainability.”

Technological advancements

We work under tight deadlines, and technology has aided our workflow. Construction has greatly benefited from emerging technologies and material advancements. People are continually researching and developing new materials that have simplified installation processes, such as products pre-assembled in factories that need to be placed on-site.

Facades and energy efficiency

In terms of energy efficiency, because the façade mediates the link between the inside and the outside, it’s critical to consider the natural elements that will be allowed into the structure while planning, as this will determine how comfortable a space is for its user. Efficiency can be achieved by selecting the proper material or improving how a facade collects energy. Solar voltaic cells can be used on building sides that receive a lot of sunlight, lowering total operating expenses. A poorly designed façade can increase the heat load, AC load, electric load, and so on. In contrast, a well-planned façade guarantees that the building uses the least energy and provides a comfortable experience for its users.
