In today's world, the relationship between people and their environment is more important than ever. As architects explore new methods and materials that contribute to both aesthetics and functionality, the fusion of biophilic design principles is possible using AODELI's timber finishes on aluminium cladding that can be used in both exterior and interior applications.

What is biophilic design?

Biophilic design is a concept that seeks to create a stronger bond between people and the natural environment. It aims to incorporate nature into our built environment, promoting human health, productivity, and wellbeing. The benefits of biophilic design are becoming increasingly recognised in architecture, with many architects seeking to integrate these principles into their projects.

Combining biophilic design and AODELI's aluminium facade cladding

To create a truly biophilic design using AODELI's exterior aluminium facade cladding, consider the following:

Aesthetics: The timber woodgrain on the aluminium cladding – although created using paint finishes – closely mimics the look of natural wood with realistic repeats of the grain.

Colour: The colour palette draws inspiration from the earthy hues of actual timber, fostering visual harmony with the surrounding natural environment.

Durability: Despite its natural aesthetic, aluminium cladding boasts superior durability, making it an ideal choice for projects where longevity and resilience are paramount.

With an increasing number of architects and designers recognising the value of biophilic design principles, AODELI's exterior aluminium facade cladding timber finishes serve as an excellent tool to incorporate these principles into a wide variety of projects. Not only do they promote a sense of connection with the natural world but they also offer practical benefits, including longevity, ease of maintenance, and aesthetic appeal.

The AODELI advantage

The Aodeli timber range has been developed with the desire to create woodgrain finishes that are superior in their quality. These finishes can add a touch of organic beauty to any interior or exterior space whilst promoting a sense of tranquillity and warmth, which are integral to biophilic design.
