Top 95 Architecture Trends in April

From Renovated Retro Drive-Thrus to Sustainable Solar Homes

— April 25, 2015 — Art & Design
There may be a concentration on modern aesthetics, which happens to be a common theme in this particular industry; yet the top April 2015 architecture trends also focus on another surprising quality: casualness. From revamped cottages to shipping container parts, the designs glamorize more carefree structures in a way that contemporary urban societies can appreciate.

The collection of top April 2015 architecture may have a casual commonality, yet that's not to say they aren't at all chic. The perfect example is the recently completed Starbucks cafe in Hollywood. Taking over a 1930s gas station, it nevertheless maintained the original retro look in order to provide a tourist destination for both residents and visitors. There are many ways companies can revamp their brand in this way.
