Staying ahead of the curve is crucial for us as Architects! As we approach 2024, a new wave of architectural trends will undoubtedly reshape the industry with, we believe, a focus on sustainability and natural aesthetics. In this blog, we anticipate all the trends you might expect to see in 2024 within the built environment.

Biophilic Design

The connection between nature and architecture has never been more important, and in 2024, we think biophilic design will start to dominate the industry. This trend involves combining natural elements into construction, so expect to see more green roofs, living walls and the incorporation of natural materials.

Net-Zero Architecture

Here at AWL, we preach the importance of sustainability in architecture, and we firmly believe architecture doesn’t need to be detrimental to the environment. In 2024, we believe the focus will continue towards achieving net-zero or even towards the creation of positive energy buildings. Advances in green technologies, like solar panels, energy-efficient systems and smart building management, will allow architects to design structures that generate more energy than they consume.

Adaptive Reuse & Circular Design

Environmentally conscious architects are increasingly turning to adaptive reuse and circular design principles. This means, rather than demolishing old structures, architects are exploring new ways to repurpose existing buildings. This type of ‘circular design’ emphasises the use of sustainable materials and helps to minimise waste throughout the lifecycle of a building.

AR & VR Integration

Advancements in technology are reshaping how architects design and present their ideas. In 2024, the integration of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will most likely become standard practice for firms. This tech will allow us to create more immersive experiences for our clients, enabling them to visualise and interact with our designs before construction even begins!

We stay ahead of the trends to offer our clients the latest in forward-thinking builds. For innovative and inspiring architectural design, get in touch with a member of our team today!
