Contemporary architecture is more than a recently built structure, it’s a conscious effort to move away from the designs of the past and create something entirely new. This innovation drives contemporary architecture to push the boundaries and present you with a unique, creative, beautiful, yet functional and practical solution.
This approach offers a multitude of benefits that you simply don’t get with more traditional architectural styles. Contemporary architecture is perfect for enhancing modern life and caters to modern life far better than any other architectural concepts.
It’s important to remember that contemporary architecture isn’t a traditional movement, like Modernism, Baroque or Futurism. Due to this, contemporary architecture doesn’t suffer any constraints, allowing your architect to design a structure that perfectly accommodates all your varied and individual needs. In fact, this approach only emphasises the use of innovative ideas and a forward thinking attitude.
Composition of volumes for versatile use
Contemporary architecture makes use of both straight and curved lines in order to make the best use of available space. This combination of straight and curved lines also makes living space extremely versatile, allowing you to set out your home in the way you want, and subsequently change it in the future if you wish to.
Environmentally-friendly construction materials
Contemporary architecture often makes use of building materials that help to minimise your carbon footprint, helping you to save money on bills and reduce energy consumption, including brick, metals, wood and modern glass. Often, plants are also used within contemporary architecture, perfect if you want an area of calm and focus at home or work.
Lots of light
One trend in contemporary architecture is to have numerous large windows in the form of window walls, uncommon positioning, skylights or panoramic windows. This not only allows for stunning design and remarkable views, but makes use of passive solar heating, once again, helping to keep your fuel bills lower. If you’re building in a populated area, you may have to think of a way to maintain your privacy, but a good architect will take that into account!
