14 Trends That Will Mark The Architectural Styles Of The Future
Read these proposals carefully because they are here to stay, most of them, and it will be a trend in architecture for a long time.
It is defined by asymmetrical forms in construction, both in residential buildings and other urban infrastructure. It is characterized by the combination of iron, wood, aluminum and even recycled plastic, which means a reduction in construction costs. Simple lines and the absence of surface elements are also characteristic of the industrial style.
In the image we see an industrial style loft designed with tiles from Azulev’s Brooklyn series.
It is an upward trend, both for new buildings and for rehabilitated buildings. Automated systems are increasingly in demand to control temperature, light or home security.
A smart building offers its users greater comfort and reduces consumption bills. Domotic architecture is a reflection of social awareness for the care of the environment and the need to consume the right.
The commitment to integrate different areas of the house to create diaphanous and multi-purpose environments is becoming clearer. This solution will allow you to enjoy more meters, what you get from the dividing walls and very practical spaces for the whole family.
Use building materials that serve as a link between the rooms and decorate the entire room consistently, to gain space and light.
The integration of the kitchen and the living room is the most common on floors with a few meters. But you can also choose to join the living room with the terrace or the living room with the bedroom. On the market there are folding and retractable furniture that will help you in these cases so that you can move from one to another naturally.
Heritage is a stone of the limestone family of our Azulev brand. This tile is ideal for unifying indoor or outdoor spaces, as we can see in the image above.
The new uses of traditional spaces were the subject of debate in the latest edition of SIMO, where Martha Torne and architect Frida Escobedo discussed this theme. An irrefutable proof of how the concept of room and architectural interest is changing to redefine spaces.
The kitchen is traditionally the most lively in the house. In it we prepare food and, on many occasions, the family gathers to eat. But it is also the favorite place for children to play or for guests to have an aperitif.
On this occasion, we also used the Heritage series to create this kitchen environment.
That is why the architectural trends for 2021 highlight the kitchen, increasing its dimensions and connecting it with the dining room and the living room. If you have that possibility, place a central island that serves as a water zone and a breakfast bar and that visually separates the lounge area.
The bathroom is no longer just a space dedicated to personal care. This stay is now understood as the place to relax after a hard day’s work. Where to disconnect outside to reconnect during a shower that will release our tensions. And all this thanks to the design and decoration.
This magnificent bathroom is much more than a bathroom, it is a true spa that we can have in our home, to enjoy a moment of relaxation and relaxation thanks to the sauna, whirlpool and hammocks where we can relax lying down. This environment was designed with our Calacatta and EternalOak series.
The new trends in bathrooms opt for very light or white tile coverings, with tiles that facilitate cleaning and transmit calm and serenity. The shower becomes the main protagonist of the bathroom, be it a hydromassage cabin or a shower with a screen. It is important that you have the dimensions necessary for its use to be comfortable for all users.
Simple furniture with storage capacity, to have everything collected, and an indoor plant will create the necessary atmosphere to enjoy daily care.
These decorative elements become more prominent in the architectural trends of 2021. The roofs with quality tiles that imitate different materials are imposed by their functionality.
In the image above, we see an environment with floors and walls with our marble tiles from the Calacatta series by Azulev.
You can put coverings with a wide variety of textures and colors, imitating mud, wood or polished cement among other materials. Make sure to always buy products that are environmentally friendly in their manufacture.
The market offers a variety of styles and colors in all construction materials, making it difficult to choose a single option. That is why this year spaces with a multitude of shapes and materials will be trends, combined properly.
In the image above, we can see the spectacular result that the combination of the Combiwood Traditional Woods porcelain parquet and Sanchis Oldker series hydraulic tiles provide.
Yellow in its different shades; from the old rose to the red watermelon; tiles with textures that imitate corduroy or tweed. In short, an explosion of shapes and colors that will affect the construction and decoration of homes and work spaces to create spaces full of life.
White in its different tones remains the protagonist in interior design, alone or combined with other colors, such as black, mustard or gray. In wall and floor coverings, it provides light to the rooms and expands them visually.
In addition, it reflects all the light received, so it is recommended in the case of dark or indoor environments. Used in its proper measure, for example, in bathroom tiles, white will provide an excellent aesthetic result.
9. Renovation, Rehabilitate, Remodel
The principle of achieving the best results, minimizing construction, is a trend in 2021. Rehabilitating old and, in many cases, historic buildings, to give them a new use, is a process that we have observed in our cities for several years.
Also the renovation of houses to adapt them to new social demands and provide them with greater comforts. These actions have the advantage of a lower economic cost than building a house or building from scratch.
All the series in our Slim Rect line are especially suitable for the renovation and rehabilitation of buildings, since they allow over-tile thanks to its thin thickness of 6mm. Likewise, the Azulev Group’s XLAM brand also offers extra-large 6mm thick floors, ideal for renovations and renovations, as they also allow over-tile.
The trend towards minimalism in architecture translates into a commitment to simple forms using modern and cutting edge materials. Contract designs are highly required for homes and hotels, as well as for office buildings and shopping centers. It is a tendency to use quality materials to ensure thermal and acoustic insulation that will result in economic savings and an environmental benefit.
11. The Concept Of The Contract
This innovative concept creates innovative work environments through open, transparent and transparent spaces. According to the new work methodology, which advocates collaboration and teamwork, offices are designed as spaces in constant change, which can be adapted at any time to the needs of users.
The contract concept is transferred to the houses to create multifunctional spaces without partitions between some rooms and with rooms limited by glass walls.
The terraces and balconies can be enjoyed throughout the year, if you condition them properly. They are a trend in architectural glass cabinets without profiles, the so-called glass curtains, which allow you to fully open the space when the weather is nice. If you have an outdoor space, however small, you can place mobile stoves to combat the cold.
Azulev’s Brooklyn series, among others of our brand, with non-slip finish, ideal for all types of exteriors.
Brooklyn is a contemporary material that combines cement, stone and cotto. Its minimalist essence makes it an ideal tile for modern or industrial style rooms, which can be placed both inside and outside. This series can be found in the following formats: 100 × 100, 50 × 100, 75 × 150, 75 × 75, 59 × 59, 29 × 59 and 75 × 75 with 20mm thickness.
Noise is a pollutant that we are exposed to inside and outside our homes. That is why more and more architectural projects are carried out with this hassle in mind, using distributions and materials that minimize noise within buildings.
At the same time, architectural technology is developed so that buildings take advantage of the natural light they receive from the sun. And, at the same time, there are trends that integrate artificial lighting in the most natural way possible, either with the stolen spots between the furniture or in the form of indirect warm light.
During the year 2021, we will learn about some of the results of experimentation with new construction systems.
Environment created with a floor designed with Azulev’s Genuine series, which is a wooden porcelain tile, and a special fireplace covering, for which the Expression series of our large format XLAM brand was used. The Expression collection is a very fine type of tin and iron plate.
Genuine is a special wooden porcelain designed to design rooms with an elegant and unique style.
