165

House design and the mechanics and processes involved in house architecture continue to develop at an astounding rate. With innovation and creativity the architecture world pushes boundaries in many different sectors and modern architecture in the form of house design is one area where we continue to see a wide range of styles, ideas and aesthetic ideals, and sustainable approaches to design and architecture that echo the surroundings of specific projects as well as understands the problems that the world faces in terms of climate change and overpopulation of urban areas. Modern house architecture must tick so many boxes, but with the right architect working on a project it can be a magnificent process to work through.

Modern architecture means more as an idea than just a structure that has recently been constructed. It is a conscious effort and desire to move forward with different styles of house design than were seen in previous decades. This effort breeds innovation and drives modern architecture forward at all times, looking to push the boundaries of what is expected, of what is possible, and what might be required in the future in terms of modern house architecture. House design must be functional and practical of course, but why should it not also be creative, beautiful, and innovative?

There are many benefits to approaching new home designs in this way, utilising an approach of modern house architecture that enhances the trappings of modern life and makes for a pleasant environment to live in, whilst also adhering to regulations, and being respectful of the traditions surrounding the area, the communities the structures are to be built within, and facing up to the future challenges that may present.

One of the major benefits to hiring an architect with a view to creating a modern house design is that you are not constricted within a set style as you are with other architectural movements, such as Modernism or Baroque. The structure of your house design can be designed and built in a way that is intuitive to the specific needs of the future homeowner, the area that it is situated, and the specific needs of the area. This helps to push innovation and allows for a much more creative outlook from the architect when coming up with ideas of how the house can be designed.

This is why in so many modern house architecture you see great use of both curved and straight lines within house design. It helps to engender a feeling of flexibility and space within any building, and shows that you are not restricted in conformity to a set rule of how a house should be designed. This helps to move away from the functional aesthetic of housing of the past, such as terraced housing in working class areas of cities, or even the conformity of approach in large detached houses in the suburbs, with each home stood alone but a carbon copy of every other house on a private estate. Conformity and functionality is boring; versatility and functionality can be very exciting.
