3D architectural rendering in the USA has shown two clear stylistic trends in recent years: loft and visualization in minimalistic style. In other words, technologies are inching their way into architecture, and fussy is out of fashion.
Let us have a look at these trends in more detail.
1. Loft Style in 3D Architectural Rendering in the USA
Originally meaning attics or upper stories located under the roof, a loft in residential property refers to large spaces, often in industrial style and adaptable in design.
So, what is in a loft?
To start with, real estate agencies distinguish between so-called hard lofts and soft lofts. Hard lofts are actual industrial buildings converted to residential use, and soft lofts are premises in loft-style built anew. Upper story spaces can also use as offices, in which case they are called work lofts/commercial lofts.
Loft style usually shows a harmonious combination of somewhat brutal decor (like exposed brick walls, ladders, uncovered pipes of a ventilation system, factory accessories, etc.) and modern interior elements (machinery, metal, and mirrors) in one interior. In addition, to make the loft more comfortable and cozy, eclectics some into a scene.
This solution is suitable for people of creative professions, so-called bohemians. For thrifty people, low cost and ease in all - the primary style credo.
For owners of apartments with free planning:
The windows to the floor and huge space - the best basis of style-you can roam in this room, for freedom-loving people with a desire to stand out.
That’s why this style takes the prior positions among the trends of architectural rendering in the USA.
2. Minimalist style in the 3D architectural rendering in the USA
Minimalism is a very bright style in modern design, characterized by a denial of the classics in creative techniques and using industrial materials and natural elements to create simple geometric shapes, small volumes, and neutral colors. The most popular and well-known ethnic sort that became popular in the 3D architectural rendering in the USA is a kind of Japanese minimalism.
So in the next part of the article, we will discuss the technological trends in the 3D architectural rendering in the USA: virtual reality, animation, and virtual tour (see Part 2).
