In harmony with the nature
The challenge today is unity
With so many options with regard to the processing quickly encounter the following challenge: how we build so that we show as much as possible from the variety of textures and still create a uniform appearance?
Keywords: Variety and unity
The most important rule sounds very simple: the combination of different materials should make sense. In other words, the different structural elements would have to mutually complement one another. The materials thanks to these combinations of their beneficial side should appear no matter whether you use similarities in appearance or on contrasts.
Construction materials skillfully combine
For example, consider glass wooden facades. They are a common contemporary solution. Such facades offer light and transparency through the wide application of the glass. The wood has the role to give the sense of protection of privacy and domestic heat. Its ornamental effect before the glass facade is also very good.
Privacy is paramount

Homes that have a great plan and several bullets, can also strongly benefit from the variety of different materials. They offer different levels of isolation and can generate in various dimensions of light and heat.
Depending on you can save how to distribute the materials on the façade and in the Interior, in energy costs for warming up or cooling down.
Create a private oasis of well-being
Glass will fit on the sides, on which the sun shines directly never or hardly. You can considerably increase the well-being in a dark atmosphere thanks to this material. Wood, in combination with concrete provides good insulation in colder climates and inside keeps the cool air on hot days.

The interior design
The variety of textures in the Interior is no less present in the interior design. Here, it is very important also for aesthetic, as well as for constructive reasons. House Designer are always more courageous and find more and more matching pairs. About combining wood and tiles is very popular. The first material is good for the isolation and gives one the feeling of heat. The tiles spread out the space and the effect of other materials, in this case – the charisma of wood.
The variety of textures is present also in interior design
Should the materials in interior design as well as on the facade, the are distributed according to the premises. Glass is right there where you go for a seamless transition between indoors and outdoors. Insert wood rooms, where you need a good insulation. Wood and tiles are a good interior lining for concrete walls, because the latter quickly heat up themselves, or cool down.

Seamless transition between indoors and outdoors
Another feature of the application of various materials in the Interior represents the distribution of the zones within an open living space. In modern multi-storey houses which have an open floor plan, up to three – four materials can be seen. Concrete is often released on the interior walls, glass can rise to over two or more floors on an outside wall, we often see wood and tile on floors and walls.

The innovations make it possible to continue to use the materials well-known to us and to experience them in newer and newer forms. The same materials in indoor and outdoor areas can be seen through the different types of processing. So architects ensure for smooth transition between interior and exterior, and also for harmonic writing by contemporary houses in their environment – no matter whether they are carrying an urban or natural character.
