Concrete is one of those materials that has to be well considered from the onset from both a cost and construction perspective. While WOLF Architects does offer its clients many more affordable options that look like concrete, real concrete is the only product that will outlive us. In coastal areas that are subject to very high winds a concrete home may be the only way to withstand movement. Not only does its structural rigidity offer a sense of security but things such as windows and doors tend to stay in place with less warping or corrosion.
