A recent webinar covering the top housing design trends for 2019 offers inspirational examples from all over the U.S., falling into three categories: Detailed Simplicity, The New Naturalism, and The Traditional Leap.
Part of John Burns Real Estate Consulting's Detailed Simplicity category, the Roofline Retreat trend offers balance of modern and tradition, with roof decks fulfilling the former aesthetic, and the elevation providing the traditional counterweight. The example cited is a townhome at Fairways Ridge by Pulte Homes, with a roof deck integrated into the gabled roofline, taking advantage of scenic views of Virginia.
Into the Wilds: It’s hard to tell where the indoors end and the outdoors begin at the clubhouse at the Resort at Playa Vista. The clubhouse integrates natural materials in its elevation and has plentiful windows. Its design creates a seamless division from indoors and out, especially as the fitness center extends to a covered outdoor track and to a landscaped roof seating area.
