DGNB and art

Consultancy on DGNB criteria and art

Art plays a crucial role in improving construction and promoting sustainability on multiple levels – socially, economically, and environmentally. The Danish DGNB certification model is a step-based system designed to enhance sustainability efforts within construction and urban areas. Through integrated art, certification can be positively influenced, opening the possibility of achieving the prestigious DGNB Platinum level.

How do we use art in DGNB certification?

Utilizing art in DGNB certification can be a creative and effective way to enhance sustainability and the overall impression of a construction project. Here are some ways to integrate art into your DGNB certification:

Materials and resources: Choose artworks and art installations made from recycled materials or materials with low CO2 footprint. This contributes to meeting DGNB criteria regarding the environmental impact of materials.

Indoor climate and comfort: Use art as part of the strategy to improve indoor climate and comfort in the construction. This can include acoustic artworks or pieces that create a sense of calm and well-being.

Social quality and conditions: Integrate artworks that promote a positive social atmosphere and support the community within and around the building. This can be art that creates meeting places or art installations that encourage interaction and dialogue.

Energy efficiency and Climate adaptation: Consider artworks that integrate sustainable technologies or have a direct impact on energy consumption or climate adaptation of the building. This may include solar-integrated artworks or art installations that contribute to natural ventilation and light control.

Building ecology and environment: Choose artworks that reflect and respect the surrounding environment and ecosystem. This can be art inspired by nature or art installations that emphasize the importance of environmental protection and sustainability.

By integrating art in these ways, you can not only meet DGNB criteria but also create a unique and meaningful experience for the users of the building while contributing to a more sustainable future.
