There’s nothing like a modern home exterior that boasts clean lines, expansive windows, and an undeniably sleekness. Whether you prefer the look of industrial metals, or would rather the warmth of wood, there are endless modern home styles to love, and the exteriors are no exception.
Modern house designs are all over the spectrum in terms of shapes, sizes, and materials as architects seek creative solutions for every problem presented by location, client’s desires, and, of course, budget. While modern homes are generally quite alike with their boxy shapes and glazed facades there are still a lot of interesting eye-catchy ideas out there.
THE ASIAN ELEMENT
Advanced ideas and innovations from the West work best in Asian countries when adapted to localities and geographic conditions and while complicated design tends to be beautiful and expensive, modern architecture is made up of simple design and construction but affordable.
Asian architecture and designs are a fusion of styles, cultures, and civilizations. They are intricate but also minimalist, and everything else in between. There’s the elaborate Chinese architecture and Japanese minimalism. In between, you have the romantic Balinese designs.
Asymmetry and balance are two important elements in Asian architectural design. From the lines and the color to the furniture, everything feels just about right. These complement the traditional way of life and the modern elements of design.
The words peace, serenity, and zen naturally come to mind when talking about Asian architectural design. You come in and you suddenly feel calm. Is it the sound of a waterfall? Is it the smell of burning incense? Zen has never really left the building, so to speak.
Asian architecture has adopted modern technologies and blended them well with natural elements. They are world leaders in green living architecture and eco-friendly construction, a trend that will likely make waves for years and generations to come.
