Modern housing or modern architecture is a style of design and construction of houses that is warming up to the hearts of the public. When compared to its predecessor classic houses, there are notable differences between both designs, each offering a fresh sense of style. Society is quite liberal, meaning you’ll find some who want to continue with classical designs of house construction, while others have developed a taste for these new designs coming up. The good thing with having both styles in our market is that both customers on the spectrum will be satisfied in their own way since both needs will be achieved.
One notable difference between the classical design of house construction and modern designs is the set up of their roofs. In classical design, a roof will tend to have a visible conical shape or triangular shape that stems from the ceiling of the building. It was designed to provide airspace preventing direct heat from the roof from reaching inside the house without cooling off first. They were also esthetically pleasing to the eye, and certain individuals still fancy it to date. Roofing in modern houses is quite the opposite where instead of a triangular-shaped roof, they have flat roofs at the top, giving this house a rectangular shape.
Another difference can be seen in the size and design of their ventilation. Windows in classics are limited to a certain height and width to accommodate this structure’s weight. There are classical homes that have adopted the modern style of windows, but others stick to the normal ones. Modern homes have a different style, where a whole wall could be replaced by a window. This allows for good natural lighting, with aeration within that room, making it a catchy sight as well. When it gets too bright, there are blinders that are deployed to block the sun’s rays from entering that house. These large windows enable us to have breathtaking views in the morning, especially if constructed next to the beach or within a compound with a beautiful garden.
Time used in construction is another difference worth pointing out. Classics take a longer time to construct than modern design due to the number of materials required to put it up, and the labor required as well. It can therefore be time-consuming, while both designs provide the same sense of security. This is why people are moving and embracing the new methods of construction, which are time-saving, cheaper to construct while being esthetically satisfying.
