Even, the ways in which our living spaces are designed and built influence our lifestyles. Each type of building has something to say or some kind of statement to make. The way in which they stand tall, the colors used for the exteriors and the features that are built for people living, everything adds up to the overall ‘mood’ it exudes.
Well, as generations pass and people’s choices and preferences change, so do the architectural trends. Here are a few new trends in architecture that will set the foundation for the near future:
In its traditional form, universal design helped to create accessible environments for the young, old, able and disabled alike. This provision for accessibility will continue to be a trend in the future too. In fact architects will devise new and innovative ways to introduce accessibility.
Green buildings are now taking a root in residential spaces
Both commercial and residential buildings today adopt eco-friendly construction methods. Environment awareness of people in general has also impacted the way buildings are – or should be designed in the future. Water efficiency, maximizing the use of sunlight and natural light, and such other features will be a priority while building environment friendly homes.
Prefab construction gains popularity
Prefabricated, modular constructions are becoming more and more popular. Offsite constructions reduce the amount of time required to construct a building and are known for its waste reduction too. The various modules for construction are built in a highly controlled factory environment and then transported to the construction site for building. This ensures that there is no waste of raw materials too, as the factory ensures the reuse of the materials. The external weather conditions do not have an impact on the construction and the delays in time due to weather are minimized or almost eliminated. Prefab constructions are definitely one of the future trends in architecture to look out for.
Accessibility to major city joints
Homeowners today want easy access to public transport, shopping areas and business places. One of the major considerations for architects is that they need to include such facilities (as much as possible) into their designs.
Architecture design trends come and go, some trends stay for long and some fade away too soon. However, the mindset of introducing green features into the architecture is one trend that is unlikely to change. Smart home designs are also a necessity these days. Inclusion of advanced technology in the designs will create an elevated living environment.
