Construction, architecture, and spatial planning have taken on a whole new dimension as of late. This is most evident in today’s different approach to planning living spaces – both inside and out. Quality of life is becoming a crucial factor, so quantifying that quality has developed completely different criteria – the well-known criteria of health, heating, no noise pollution, safety and security, and rationality are being joined by aesthetic criteria, the absence of stress, a proper work-life balance, self-sustenance, the prevention of natural disasters like floods, participation in the circular economy, and a general sentiment towards environmental responsibility. This last note even includes ensuring for biodiversity by constructing living spaces for essential spices, e.g. beehives, as well as things like minimizing air pollution.

“The most competitive solution providers for construction and green infrastructure are accelerating our efforts to adapt to those changes. We want to provide aware customers with solutions that exceed their expectations regarding quality of life and well-being.”

Urbanscape®, as a startup within the Knauf Group, strives to create green solutions for urban centers that embellish upon and complement classical architecture. We make solutions that allow for green surfaces with some fairly demanding growing conditions, such as vertical walls or roof greenery, ensuring that they provide a fertile growing base with necessary conditions such as nutrients, ample space, and abundant water. With the guiding principle of “for a better life and better living environments”, we are striving to greenify our buildings, to make urban centers more friendly and comfortable, and in doing so to return to the environment at least a little bit of that which we’ve taken from her in the past.

Our green solutions, all grouped under our brand Urbanscape®, endeavor to create a better, more beautiful, and more comfortable living space. In this quest we are constantly focused on solving the environmental challenges of the coming era – including reducing the amount of urban heat islands, capturing particulate matter that can be used as fertilizer for green spaces, on cleaning our air, and on preventing atmospheric warming.

The green Urbanscape® line is meant for informed investors, providing a long-term win-win situation that bridges the space between infrastructure user and the environment.

With our solutions we strive to improve people’s well-being in urban areas, at the same time fostering a culture of clean environments, good feeling, and freedom of existence, which in turn spark people to act more responsibly towards society and the planet in the future.
