Top 30 Architecture Trends in August

From Greek Modernist Oases to Hexagonal Home Extensions

— August 28, 2021 — Eco
The August architecture trends are marked with a strong emphasis on sustainable building practices and eco-conscious material choices. As a result, modern, minimalist, and sleek styles are favored over loud and boisterous designs. At the same time, a strong effort to relate the built environment to its natural surroundings is apparent in many of the trends.

Among the trends is a Tuscan farmhouse designed by Valeria Presicci and Carlo Pantanella D'Ettorre. This minimalist home sits in the breathtaking Maremma coastal region of Tuscany, and architects designed a muted home that spoke to the natural environment.

While a residential home in the Czech Republic boasts a minimalist design that strongly emphasizes natural light and open space. The architects chose white walls and light woods for this space to create a serene and sanctuary-like feel.
