Architecture has the unique ability to inspire, set a tone, and say so much without saying a word at all. Architectural design has evolved significantly over the years, taking on a variety of styles that reflect the events, culture and personality of their time. Talented and innovative designers are always searching for ways to revolutionize the industry, coming up with ideas and styles the world has never seen before. Let's take a look at some of the most impressive and innovative trends we are seeing in the architecture sphere at both the commercial and residential level.  


1115 Hillsboro Mile, Hillsboro Beach, FL 33062

This Estate is For Sale Here

It's no secret that less is more for the current architecture world — at both the macro and micro level. Minimalist exteriors feature large and bold shapes, sharp lines, shiny metals, and natural materials, and interiors host bright white walls, chic built-ins and expansive rooms. In fact, the color white epitomizes this clean and simple look that is so desirable right now. Fueled by modernity and technology, this trend is taking over the design world, inside and out.

Design typically corresponds to the current cultural concerns during the time it was conceived. So it's no surprise that builders are starting to construct with a greater emphasis on sustainability and ecological intelligence. Sustainable building, commonly known as green construction, means both the structure and building process are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient. We have noticed a major increase in solar-powered homes throughout the world, as architects use both active and passive techniques to reduce energy dependency in buildings and homes, often through the installation of solar panels. Tesla's solar-powered roofing materials are invisible when viewed from the street, yet are fully exposed to the sun from above. Sleek tile designs include Tuscan glass, slate glass, textured glass, and smooth glass.  

Glass Walls

We are also seeing an increase in floor-to-ceiling glass walls in both corporate structures and modern homes. Many "walls" slide back and forth or open with the press of a button to create seamless indoor/outdoor living. Glass walls add a striking modern look and feel, let in glorious rays of sunlight to a home's interior, and maximize vistas by providing a panoramic snapshot of surrounding scenery. This transparent design feature is especially attractive for South Florida homebuyers, as they can more easily appreciate water views, enjoy indoor/outdoor tropical living, and soak in as much sun as possible from their home's interior.  

Rooftop Gardens

Along the lines of sustainability, rooftop gardens have started to emerge atop homes and corporate structures all around the world. In fact, some buildings depend on their green roofs to improve the quality of the structure, the environment, and the wellbeing of its inhabitants. Benefits of rooftop gardens include stormwater management, improved air quality, energy efficiency, noise reduction, and much more. Not to mention, the aesthetic appeal of these gardens in the sky adds a significant touch of natural beauty to an otherwise unnatural structure.  

Mixed Materials

19 Tropical Drive, Ocean Ridge, FL 33435

This Estate is For Sale Here

Architects have become braver as of late, daring to combine unpredictable materials to create unified and stunning works of art. This concept is similar to a dish served at a high-end eatery that combines textures, flavors and temperatures to create a cohesive experience. Likewise, mixed materials in architecture add a unique element and interest to the overall look and feel of a design. You can easily see this trend on exteriors of new construction modern homes or buildings, where the designer has layered blocks of contrasting materials, often in square or rectangular shapes. We particularly admire the combination of cold metals and warm wood, which emit a clean, sophisticated and modern look when paired together.  

Invisible Buildings

The surreal concept of invisible buildings may not seem achievable, but master architects aspire to make this dream a reality. Mirror-like facades help buildings blend into their surrounding environment by reflecting the sky, neighboring buildings, and other elements of the landscape. Architects in South Korea are taking this a step further with their plans to create the world's first invisible tower. Tower Infinity will use a high-tech LED facade system that creates a reflective cover surrounding the massive 1,476-foot structure that will appear transparent by day and bright at night.

Striking Lakeside Estate With Black + White Contrast

The interior makes a bold statement throughout, with a stark contrast of black and white, abstract shapes, and soaring glass windows overlooking the pool and lake. The view of this estate from the resort-style outdoor living space is just as striking, due to its bright, contemporary and rectangular appearance.

The design throughout is chic and sophisticated, while still remaining relaxed and engaging. Natural light floods the interior, due to the large glass doors lining the wall between the first-floor living area and the pool.  

Transitional + Modern Estate With Indoor Garden

Transitional + Modern Estate With Indoor Garden Transitional + Modern Estate With Indoor Garden This private estate in the guard-gated island enclave of Bay Colony brings a fresh perspective to modern interior design. It branches out to a darker color scheme while still maintaining a neutral tone. It clings to the sharp edges of modern design, while introducing some unexpected materials. We particularly admire the entryway leading to the living space with soaring ceilings and a lush indoor garden.

It takes over half of the fifth floor of this intimate boutique condominium, featuring four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.

The clean lines, stark contrast, and unique features (such as the asymmetrical bathroom sink) make this residence truly stunning.
