Cork is a sustainable building material harvested from the bark of the cork oak tree, primarily found in the Mediterranean region. In architecture, cork is renowned for its unique combination of properties, including light weight, elasticity, thermal insulation, and acoustic dampening. It’s commonly used in flooring for its comfortable feel underfoot and also as an insulating material in walls and roofs due to its excellent resistance to temperature fluctuations. Its natural texture and aesthetic appeal also make it a choice material for interior finishes and facade cladding. Cork’s renewable nature and versatile application make it an increasingly popular choice in modern, environmentally conscious design.
