Greentecture: the future of cities



In a world that is increasingly aware of the importance of sustainability and environmental impact, architecture and design are facing new challenges.

The future of cities is set out through the prism of greentecture, an architectural trend that combines aesthetics, functionality and sustainability to create living spaces in harmony with the environment. 

At Krion, we firmly believe in this vision of the future. Our commitment to innovation, aesthetics and sustainability is reflected in our next-generation solid surfaces, created to offer architects and interior designers the opportunity to build a more eco-friendly world without sacrificing aesthetics and functionality.

What is Greentecture?

Greentecture, or green architecture, is a trend in design and construction that integrates environmental considerations in all its stages. Its aim is to minimise the environmental impact of buildings and promote the health and well-being of its occupants. 

This goal is achieved through design strategies that include energy efficiency, the use of sustainable and recyclable materials, and the integration of nature into the building's design.

This is where it crosses paths with the concept of biophilic architecture, which seeks to create a connection between the occupants of the building and nature, to improve their psychological and physical well-being. In design, biophilia focuses on blurring the boundaries with the outdoors and adding natural elements to the building: natural light, plants, natural materials...  

Greentecture, a trend for building more sustainable buildings

Greentecture is not a fad, but the path to follow to build our cities and buildings of the future. Architects, designers and builders are increasingly aware that buildings should be not only aesthetically attractive and functional, but also environmentally friendly.

In this regard, at Krion we believe that, in line with greentecture and biophilic design, our products can help to create healthy buildings with a smaller impact on the environment. Krion® Solid Surface, with a high mineral composition and environmentally friendly, is an example of how you can combine aesthetics, functionality and viability in a single product. ç

Its physical and technical characteristics, resistance, durability, robustness, repairability, and ability to be shaped and adapted make it a sustainable material that, when used in greentecture projects, promotes the connection with nature, an essential pillar of biophilic architecture. And as it is a sustainable material, it is perfectly aligned with the principles of this field of architecture.

Due to its ability to withstand extreme conditions and easy maintenance, along with its aesthetic appeal and sustainability, it is ideal for façade cladding. Its installation improves the building's energy efficiency and contributes to a clean and modern design.

In the context of greentecture, Krion® is not only a sustainable design solution, but it contributes to the health and well-being of the building occupants.

Its versatility allows it to be used in many applications, from bathrooms and kitchens to façades. Wherever you are, it provides a pleasant and natural aesthetic while maintaining the highest standards of hygiene and durability.

In this regard, you may be interested in taking a look at some of its applications for specific spaces or sectors, whose establishments are key parts of cities:


Greentecture is clearly a trend in line with the evolution of architecture and design.  And we live in a world that is increasingly aware of the importance of sustainability. That's why at Krion we are proud to offer products that meet the highest standards of quality and design, and help to create a more sustainable world.
