Concrete Architecture Studio "ART. BETON"
Decorative elements for zoos, theme parks, malls, and coffee shops. Artificial trees, rocks, and stones. Sculpture for parks and gardens. Mural paintings. Scenery for cinema and theaters.
Theme spaces are currently very popular.
Architects and designers often try to find or create a common theme that can unify all of the elements in a project and make it truly unique. A fresh and unconventional design is key for commercial success: whether you run a park, a coffee shop or a hotel, you want it to stand out and attract more customers.
But when you get down to discussing the blueprints, there are two questions you need to answer: how exactly you are going to fabricate all those unique decorations your design specialist invented—and what materials you are going to use?
Our company has significant experience in fabricating decorations for theme parks, zoos, malls, coffee shops, and private customers. We work with architectural concrete and fiberglass.
In addition to sculptures and decorative elements, our qualified team also creates scenery for theater and movie production.
At your option, we will fabricate artificial trees, rocks, stones, , and other architectural elements of any size and complexity made from art concrete or fiberglass.They can either be fantastic or realistic (with the full imitation of natural textures such as stone or wood). We most often work with architectural concrete, a very strong and yet flexible material that allows us to fabricate decorations on-site in very short order.
If the requested structure includes fine elements, or if it needs to be very light, fiberglass is our material of choice.

Exposed concrete items are manufactured using a metal frame. The material is very flexible thanks to its constituent components, ensuring the performance of works with a high degree of detail. Each item is unique and hand moulded to correspond exactly to the selected texture. This production technique helps perform work on-site in the shortest timeframes.
Exposed concrete is resistant to moisture and temperature fluctuations. It is also highly antivandal, thus the items will last for many years. The weight of 1 m2 of an exposed concrete item 5 cm thick is approximately 95 kg. The weight is specified accounting for the metal frame.
