In this blog, we'll discuss three of the top architectural design trends in 2021!
Modern Industrial Style
Industrial style living originated in the 1940s. Abandoned industrial buildings were deserted, renovated and given away as rental housing. This might not seem very desirable, industrial living did have its advantages. They had open spaces, tons of natural light and high ceilings. As time passed modifications to the design style were made and shortly after industrial homes were booming across the United States.
Modern industrial style homes are more flexible and intimate. They promote:
- Sharp lines and angles for platforms and roofs
- Panoramic windows
- Balconies, terraces, lounge areas
- Natural, industrial facade materials such as - brick, concrete, glass, wood and stone
The Progression of Minimalism
Minimalism has been a popular design choice since the 1950s and 1960s. For a design trend to stay relevant for 70 years, architects who create minimalist designs have had to adapt and stay creative. Some of the popular features that promote the ever-desirable components of functionality and harmony to a minimalist home are:
- Multi-level modular structures
- Open terraces and verandas
- A low foundation
- Exterior decoration such as - stone, metal, glass and composite panels
- Light, neutral tones
Eco-Style Focal Points
As millennials continue to leave their mark on the real estate market, the demand for eco-friendly homes increase. Some of the most popular features in eco-style homes are:
- Gardens and green walls for both the interior and exterior
- Recycled and natural materials in decoration and construction
- Production of more environmentally friendly technologies, raw materials and equipment
