Architecture trends are constantly evolving. We see trends come in and go out, sometimes quicker than we can keep up. These ever-changing trends are influenced by a number of factors, such as societal progression, new needs that are met by design, and new innovations that hit the market  Just like any year, this year we are expecting fresh styles and vast design trends. We’ve rounded up a few trends that will shape building and house designs in 2021. Let’s take a look at what the new year has to bring. 


Eco-friendly design

Eco homes are on the rise and our Wellington draughtsmen and house designers have been championing them for years. More and more Wellington homes are incorporating eco-friendly designs to include more elements of nature. From vertical gardens to green roofing our Wellington house designers are excited at the prospects of the growing eco-trend. Speak to your Wellington architectural designer about converting your walls into a jungle-esque masterpiece. Not only will it look amazing but you’ll be helping the environment at the same time. A true win-win.


Informal living

It’s safe to say that formal living and dining rooms are a thing of the past. Our Wellington draughtsmen are designing more open-space layouts with greater indoor-outdoor flow. This movement to informality is due to the growth in outdoor living. Homeowners now prefer outdoor kitchens and fully furnished outdoor rooms that allow for entertainment and relaxation. An outdoor oasis in your very own backyard is a great way to increase the value of your property while enjoying the bliss of an overseas holiday. We’re dreaming of all the possibilities already. 


Smart homes

2021 will bring home automation to the next level. Automated systems are increasingly in demand offering great comfort and reducing consumption bills. Smart homes are a real game-changer. Imagine opening your front door with your hands full of groceries. Well, that could be hands-free thanks to your smartphone’s Bluetooth-enabled door-unlocking feature. Your lights and thermostat can set themselves as soon you enter your home. Watering your garden will no longer be a time-consuming chore, as hot, dry conditions can automatically activate your sprinklers. And, at night, you can sleep soundly knowing you have a smart home security system
