Go to cities with a strong industrial and/or business base, and what do you see?  You will most likely see a bunch of buildings designed by a commercial architect.  Even in developing nations, from Shanghai to Scottsdale, commercial buildings are an important part of the skyline of any city.

Skyscrapers are what most people think of when they think of commercial buildings,  however, sometimes commercial architecture can be retail plazas or industrial parks.  Some commercial buildings are designed for office space, and some for machinery.  And in some cases, commercial real estate can be a restaurant or night club.  Whatever  the purpose these buildings serve, all commercial property has several commonalities.

Commercial Architecture and the Needs of Business

For one thing, full business centers are one of the best indications that the economy is rebounding. Each of these buildings should be safe, comfortable, connected, and accessible.  Any commercial building should be designed with the need of the businesses as part of the design.  For example, if the space is used effectively, such as for conferences, lobby design, and office allocation then it can be deemed a well-designed building.

Because of the unique needs of businesses as opposed to homeowners, commercial architectural plans are quite different than plans for, say a three bedroom home.  One thing that businesses have to adhere to far more closely are environmental concerns.  Nowadays setting up a business is a lot more complicated.  Reducing carbon emissions, energy efficient design, and environmental impact studies are all concerns now with commercial architecture.

In our next article, we will explore some of these changes in the way commercial architecture has changed.  In addition we will also explore more about the specialties that a commercial architect has to offer.
