With the ability to almost make buildings disappear from sight, invisible architecture unites creativity and sustainability in buildings of any size, which together with the use of optical effects and functional materials, makes them less visible.
In their exterior design, these sustainable buildings seek to integrate with the landscape, minimizing visual pollution. Instead, maximizing the functionality of buildings becomes a priority, creating spaces that stimulate the creativity and production of their employees through inspiring design. This is what is known as invisible architecture.
This architectural trend proposes to help the environment promote the improvement of our habits. They are constructions that blend in with the landscape, almost ghostly buildings that adapt to the environment and fight against ostentation, that aspire to blend in with the landscape to go unnoticed; rather than being completely hidden, what it seeks is not to distract, to be functional and not to dominate the view, to let in natural light.
It has its own characteristics, such as the commitment to large windows, to promote the use of light and the incorporation of plants and elements of natural origin in most of the building space. Its mission is to adapt to the present, trying not to be distracted, not to be striking to the eye, to be functional and to be able to take advantage of everything that nature offers.
Especially adapted for the creation of green offices, invisible architecture focuses on sustainability and comfort, through impressive creations of large buildings that with optical effects are capable of making their walls transparent, ensuring optimal insulation.
This is in line with a search for human well-being that is increasingly important. The saturation of space and the overstimulation typical of any city. The solution is an appropriate use of space and the promotion of emotional and sensory well-being; of course, supported by a sustainable use of resources.
More than being a type of architecture, it is a totally visionary movement, gaining more position every day. In this way, it is intended that, despite being a space modified by humans, freedom can be felt, seeking the balance of space and the environment.
Through the creation of functional spaces and inspiring designs, invisible architecture is beginning to gain importance in office buildings. In fact, in cities like Mexico City, there are already constructions of this type.
At GEG we keep up to date with all the innovations and news in our sector and we strongly support the creation of buildings that are respectful of the environment that surrounds us.
