    The 5 most popular architectural styles for 2020

    May 18, 2020  

    Hamptons

    Hamptons continues to remain popular, however there will be a steer away from the classic, American aesthetic of blue and white, to a more Australian look. Think of it as an evolving style, with the additions of muted greens and mustards, as well as blurring the architectural lines between Hamptons and Scandi or Country. luxitecture.com.au

    Modern farmhouse

    Barn doors aren’t going anywhere. The nostalgia, approachability, and light and bright style of modern farmhouse continues to have widespread appeal. In 2020 we will see more and different texture and interior layering – think moodier colors instead of Whisper White, warm woods instead of light tiles, fluted wood panels, not shiplap.

    Roaring 20s

    As we move into the 21st century’s Roaring 20s, there is a distinct move towards architectural elements that define the Art Deco era. Embracing this are more arched openings and curving brickwork walls, as is the newfound popularity of patterned and terrazzo tiles. Other design themes include geometric shapes, bronze elements and chevron patterns; pastel exterior and interior colours take this vibe even further.

    Modern

    Our contemporary lifestyles lend themselves naturally to contemporary homes. The trend for 2020 is characterised by asymmetrical forms in combinations of iron, wood, aluminium and even recycled plastic, which makes construction cheaper. Simple lines and the absence of surface elements are also emblematic of the industrial style. Minimalism is a hallmark, and this translates into a commitment to simple forms using modern and avant-garde materials, particularly those that guarantee thermal and acoustic insulation.

    Passive

    What emerged as a trend has become a philosophy of life and a way of understanding how our relationship with the environment can and should develop. The primary objective of passive houses’ architectural design is using the available resources to maximise energy savings, facilitating better energy efficiency within the home and reducing the reliance on artificial climate controls. architectureanddesign.com.au
