Designers are designing the homes of the future in a way that’s completely different from the way homes were designed a generation ago.
With the rise of the internet, designers have the freedom to build their homes with their own personal aesthetic, as well as connect with people through their personal projects.
But what happens when your home is going to be on the market and someone wants to buy it?
Designers can’t just hand the house off to someone else, especially if it’s for someone else’s benefit.
So, designers are starting to work with home buyers to help them build a better home.
Here are some of the more interesting developments that are happening with the homes on the block:● A designer in San Francisco has created a home that looks like a giant neon sign.● A homeowner in Minneapolis is using his wife’s art to create an outdoor kitchen in their home.● An architect in California is turning a home in New York into a mini-cabinet.● Two Chicago-based architects have built a 3-D-printed house for a buyer who wants to build an outdoor living room.● One designer in Japan is turning her living room into a library, complete with a big desk, a book shelf and a fireplace.● In the Philippines, a developer is turning his garage into a house that looks very much like an ancient temple.
“You could literally say that’s what this is all about,” says one of the designers.
