Building design always evolves. This is thanks to the new technologies that arrive on the market and different designs that become popular. A number of changes have taken place in regards to commercial architecture over the last few years. As 2020 gets underway, we would like to take a look at some of the latest trends.
Work/living cross over
Work and home boundaries differ a lot from how they once were. People are welcoming the idea of flexible working. As a result of this, commercial spaces are transforming in order to be able to meet changing needs. Buildings need designs that incorporate aspects that you would normally only associate with homes. For instance, you can often find places to relax, eat, and exercise incorporated in commercial architecture.
It is incredibly likely that this is the year that incorporating technology into buildings becomes the standard. You can make your life much more efficient by connecting things through technology. As a result, you will have more efficient and functional spaces. You can connect your home and workspace by sharing data and operating appliances from wherever you are.
This year, it is expected that more buildings will use smarter designs. They will allow people to achieve the end results they are looking for. This is important when it comes to building shopping centres and making it so that people can efficiently enter and move around. It isn’t all though as this line of thinking can be helpful for other sectors. Private businesses can use it in order to make their workforce more efficient.
It is looking as though this will be the year that sustainability will be more crucial than it has ever been before. The negative impacts of waste from construction are more widely recognised. More efficient methods of design and building are likely to be the ones that are the most successful. For instance, with the right layout, you can maximise light, heat, and passive energy. In terms of commercial buildings, this keeps energy bills low and shows that you care about the environment.
