Saint-Gobain’s design concept to deliver comfort and wellbeing
Like all mammals, we are relatively fragile beings, so we have come up with various strategies, to protect ourselves from the outside environment.
The building environment, which acts as a filter between the inside and the outside, gradually became more sophisticated.
A ‘comfortable’ acoustic environment can be defined by the quality of sounds we want to hear and the absence of sounds we don’t want to hear.
Though we are now able to provide adequate artificial lighting day and night, it is well established that daylight and a view to the outside are essential to our wellbeing.
