The American Institute of Architects’ third-quarter Home Design Trends Survey found that elements such as access to public transportation, multi-generational housing, walkable neighborhoods, and mixed-use facilities dominate homeowner preferences.

The AIA said this indicates homeowners are "increasingly favoring amenities and features that offer residents a sense of community." The AIA also found that more homeowners are choosing simple, contemporary-style homes, with an increasing preference for features like low maintenance exterior materials (69%) and front and side porches (40%).
