Architectural Trends for 2016

architects Birmingham

The architectural trends that are set to dominate the leap year are to be modern, high-tech and efficient.

The idea is to use simple concepts when designing buildings. Architects believe that designs are transitioning into modern styles of home as global trends seem to be gravitating towards homes with cleaner lines and a lot of open space.

Large folding glass walls that open into large decks will be popular in the summer months.

Designs should be done sensibly so it doesn’t require so much energy to heat and cool a larger building, for those desiring multi-family housing projects. It is also believed that many homes will take advantage of heat recovery ventilation systems.

There is also the prediction that technology will be a stand out factor in building designs. Naturally, it will not be cheap, however, for the right client and in the right place, it will become a common feature.
