Find out which trends in the architecture and construction technology of private houses are now popular!
In the modern construction of private houses there are always trends. Including technological ones that improve the quality of our lives, as well as the layout, glazing or exterior design.
Construction Technology Trends Of Private Houses
In the suburbs, the most noticeable and original trend in the construction of houses is townhouses , which allow you to get your own house with a garden at the price of a Moscow apartment. Townhouses can have an area of 60 square meters and consist of two or three rooms up to 350 square meters and be full cottages. The average area of the townhouse is 120 square meters for a house with three bedrooms and a spacious kitchen-living room.
German house designs
In addition to townhouses, houses built according to German projects with an area of 80-180 square meters, with an attic are also popular . It is the option with the last attic floor – the most practical, allowing you to get a large area of the house at a good price.
German projects are easily recognizable by the facade in a modern style, dormers, white or light exterior and sliding doors to the terrace from the living room and dining room. In general, the appearance of such a house is very concise.
Sophisticated classic styles in private house architecture
In the modern Moscow region, such styles as Rococo, the “Second Empire”, Classicism, Baroque, are now experiencing a new birth. They have quite large budgets for a full and realistic implementation according to all the rules of the style, while being supplemented by a modern glazing format and a technological filling.
Brick construction and English style in the design of the exterior
Sophisticated classic styles are more characteristic of the premium segment. But the English style has become an actual substitute for suburban construction in the business class. Brick is a very popular material in Russia, while the English style ennobles it in the most elegant way.
Another trend in the construction of private houses can be considered the construction of a cottage made of wood. This includes houses made of timber, chopped logs, frame houses and some prefabricated options. Wood is a very common material now and will be so in the next season.
In recent years, more and more families choose wooden houses. They are environmentally friendly, if you choose the right wood impregnation and finishing materials.
Trendy modern styles in building a private premium home
Among the current styles for large houses (with an area of 250 square meters or more) are modern and minimalism. Often in this style the site, garden, terraces and interiors are decorated.
Minimalism is very popular in the design of private houses. Eco-minimalism is also in fashion, where much attention is paid to the choice of environmentally friendly materials.
The widespread use of panoramic glazing in Russia allows us to speak of innovative options for energy-saving and warm glazing format. This is a two-chamber and even three-chamber double-glazed window, as well as various branded exclusive developments.
In Russia, this fashion is only gaining momentum, and in Germany the “passive house” is already more popular than the mansion. Technology is becoming more practical, and for the consumer – cheaper and more affordable in every way.
An energy-efficient house is a vivid example of an eco-house, because it saves the resources of our planet and saves the family budget. It is only necessary to install once systems that will reduce costs over many years.
Construction technology depends on the particular company, but first of all, such a house saves heat, which is always good in our climatic conditions.
The microclimate in the house affects the well-being of residents. The installation of ventilation with recovery allows owners of suburban cottages to save on electricity and add energy efficiency to the project.
Recovery is the redistribution of indoor air according to specified parameters. Warm double-glazed windows do not allow a natural light draft to refresh the room, it is necessary to install a supply and exhaust system to ensure oxygen saturation. Recovery also allows you not to spend electricity on this circuit.
Shed and flat roofs
Among the main trends in private architecture, pitched and flat roofs can be noted. In today’s projects of houses in the styles of minimalism and modern style, such roofs are used more often, and soon they will cease to look a curiosity. In the future, in the Moscow Region, futuristic cottage villages will surely appear, similar to the existing buildings of the classical and country format.
Architects note a very popular technique in the construction of private houses – an open plan kitchen, living room and dining room. Now, a similar version of the layout is used not only in houses according to German designs, but also in classic mansions, wooden houses from timber and many others.
An open plan in a country house is a good idea! In my experience as a designer, I know that it is much more convenient for a family to spend time together if the kitchen, dining room and living room are in the same room.
