First impressions are everything. Would you enter a business or shop with an appearance of being run down, outdated or substandard? Facades can have significant impact on passers-by and visitors. We are visual creatures, and therefore have a preference to choose places that satisfy our senses. As result, the façade design of a commercial building is important to the success of the company.
DECO shares five exteriors that showcase how architects and designers can help companies enhance customer experience when it comes to building facades.
SHOPPING ON CLYDE
Designed to portray a premium shopping destination, this centre has a highly detailed façade featuring 50 x 50 DecoBattens. The timber-look battens were incorporated into the cantilevered entry canopy to create a dramatic effect. Finished in DecoWood ‘Casuarina’, the eye-catching canopy welcomes its visitors with a feeling of excitement.
Wrapped in DecoClad Shadowline cladding, this office building façade features a natural ‘Tasmanian Oak’ finish by DecoWood.
