Architectural Trends in 2019

by Vitrocsa john Webmaster

Throughout the first few months of 2019, we’ve seen how the advancement of both building technologies and materials have had a significant influence on the way that architects are designing and building.

And with technologies putting a greater emphasis on environmental sustainability, architects are constantly looking at new ways to get the maximum use from smaller spaces and to make this space as flexible as possible.

Eco-Friendly Structures

Most architects agree that all new buildings should be designed with environmental sustainability as an integral aspect. As more and more of us become increasingly eco-conscious, it stands to reason that we expect our homes and commercial establishments to be eco-friendly too. This not only applies to the way in which they’re designed but the materials that are used to construct them.

Some of the most innovative buildings not only include architectural glazing systems to give a sense of space and light but have unique features such as green walls and indoor gardens and parks.

Of course, architects and builders have been using environmentally friendly and recyclable building materials for a number of years now, and this will continue to be the case. Recyclable materials will be the preferred option over concrete, metal and brick and will be used for everything from the building itself to the furniture inside.

Flexible Living Spaces

With the increasing popularity of open-plan spaces where families can cook, entertain and relax in one area, the need for little-used formal and dedicated rooms will disappear. Rather than having a dedicated living room, dining room and kitchen, a large multipurpose space will become the norm, which can be customised to meet each family’s needs.

With the use of sliding doors, cavity doors, movable dividers and architectural glass systems, the architects and builders can create versatile spaces that seamlessly transition from one area to another. When the doors are open, you’ll have a large open plan space to accommodate a variety of activities and people, or you can close the doors to create more intimate areas to carry on family life.

Tiny Houses

Homes have grown larger over the last few decades; however, this is set to change. There’s a movement afoot to create smaller homes, and tiny homes and micro-apartments have seen an upsurge in popularity due to pressures of the cost of living, changing priorities and a need to offset the environmental impact of larger homes.

Many consumers and homeowners are now starting to question the way they live and how their actions and habits impact the environment and are looking at smaller living spaces as a way to reduce the impact of their carbon footprint.

So, as you can see, 2019 architectural trends are all about reducing our environmental impact and creating more flexible, customised homes that suit the way we live today.
