Concrete seems like it may not be the best creative tool but you would be surprised. People forget that concrete has a really great duality to it. Not only is concrete strong, long lasting and durable, but concrete is also very flexible and adaptive. When you are first mixing concrete you can mix it into whatever shape you want. This allows it to dry into that strong long lasting durable concrete you associate with being concrete. Architectural concrete gets to show off both these aspects. In architectural concrete, concrete is both decorative and has structural purpose.
Concrete gets a poor reputation for being a boring gray slab. Yet one of the fascinating aspects about architectural concrete is that you often do not realize it is concrete you are looking at. This chameleon effect of concrete really comes in handy when using it for architectural purposes. It is a cheaper material, less expensive than natural stone or brick but still displays all the strong, long lasting durable characteristics of a hard building material. This in turn makes concrete very suitable for architectural purposes. When you have a wall that is exposed concrete you have a lot more options, than if it was an exposed brick wall.
With concrete stamping and adding texture to concrete as well as colors concrete will always possess this quality of a blank canvas. If you have a wall that you want to look like natural stone that can be done with concrete stamping and the concrete is exemplifying its structural strength. When concrete is used decoratively there are many options and variation in style that can be picked and displayed. The wall is still holding up half the building and has that structural purpose but you are showing off the decorative side of it. Architectural concrete can really slay two birds with one stone.
Concrete known for being one of the most commonly used materials across the world. Used for its economical advantage of being a material that does not cost a lot, concrete is a popular for many buildings and structures across the world. Not only is it a cost effective material, but concrete is also known for being a hard durable material. When concrete is reinforced it can withstand more then most other materials for sure. The strength of concrete is very impressive and when it is used in combination with it’s adaptability it is a very impressive material.
