New Architecture

Some possible trends in Architecture in response to the new normal:

Residential
  • Balcony garden - Herbs, greens, 'good for mental health'
  • Study - WFH work space for adults and/or children
  • Flat roofs - For extra bit of sun, exercise and gardening
  • Ventilated - Fresher air through vents, fans, extractors

Commercial
  • Powered natural ventilation - Bug fighting, lower carbon
  • Al fresco - Green shaded outdoor dining, meeting spaces
  • Open mall - Open air and naturally lit concourses
  • Fusion - Interweaving of office and residential spaces
