Your choice of builder is almost as critical as your choice of a designer. With Sanmanoch&Hofmann, you can find both. We have a professional designer and architect in Khon Kaen, also an engineer who gurantees a professional building plan which is also accepted by the land office.
The principal role of Sanmanoch&HOFMANN, your house builder in Khon Kaen, is to coordinate the building works as project manager. This role includes supervising and coordinating each trade; sourcing, quantifying and coordinating delivery of materials; and, most importantly, quality-assuring the entire process!
Some builders and trades people are understandably risk-averse and tend to manage risk by using tried and proven materials and practices. Sustainable outcomes often require the use of innovative materials and practices. To avoid problems later, ensure each builder is made aware of your commitment to a sustainable home when they are invited to tender. Sanmanoch&Hofmann, your Khon Kaen Construction Company, is also in this case the right choice.
Why People Love Modern Architecture
Modern architecture has something for everyone. Even if your taste may veer towards the opposite side of the design spectrum (i.e. rustic country)— there are still elements of modern design that will appeal to you. Don’t believe it? After reading this article, you may change your mind.
The fundamentals of modern architecture are clean and simple. Its ever-present philosophy abides to the ideal that form follows function. Therefore, modern architects express themselves through simplicity, clear views of structural elements and by eschewing unnecessary design details.
Modern architecture boasts the actual structure and materials used in the building vs. covering them up with ornate designs. That is why most modern designs feature elements of wood, steel and glass, in order to show-off these industrial structural materials.
What Defines Modern Architecture?
The terms— modern and contemporary — have been intermingled in the design world, resulting in a bit of confusion. A kind of confusion that leads us to ask: Is contemporary architecture/design the same as modern architecture/design? The answer is no, and a little bit of yes. To be very literal, contemporary means now, while modern refers to technological and engineering developments that date back to the turn of the 20th Century.
To keep it simple, modern architecture focuses more on industrial metals such as steel, concrete and glass (innovative industrial developments of the time). While contemporary design may use these same elements, its designs are considered new, re-thought, or forward-thinking. Clear as mud? With all that being said, the two designs will always mix and mingle with one another—even in the images in this article.
Overall, modern architecture is defined by clean lines and minimalist interiors that allow the structure to speak for itself and take center-stage. The image below is a perfect example of clean and simple modern architecture.
Modern Design is Unique
Despite its simplistic styling that avoids extra fluff, modern architecture remains unique. In fact, modern architects have created some of the most unique designs to date. Just look to the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and numerous other iconic architects.
Yes, some of these modern designs may have flat roofs and boxy style, but they certainly manage to be anything but boring. Look around your city streets and neighborhoods—which architectural designs stand out to you the most? The unique one-of-a-kind modern ones, or the traditional designs that tend to mimic one another row upon row? Modern architecture is anything but cookie-cutter.
Look to the originality of the bold, angular roof lines that are so prominent in modern design—these are very unique. Everything from the vaulted ceilings, to the exposed structural elements, to the unusual linear elements— all equate to a unique, artistic design that you cannot help but be amazed by.
Restrained Palette In Modern Architecture
Less is definitely more when it comes to decorating a modern home. After all, why would you want to hide all the amazing architectural details of the design by adorning it with a lot of extra ornamentation? These designs were meant to speak for themselves, making their own statement through their structure and functionality.
In the image below you can see that the interior decor of this home is kept simple, clean and natural. The furnishings feature elements of steel and wood, and are incorporated to help highlight the real hero—the architecture. Everything is kept simple so that the blueprint of the home and the materials used in its design are allowed to take center-stage.
This is not to say that a modern home cannot have pops of color or added character through decor. It is just that it needs to be done in a manner that adds to the architecture rather than takes away from it.
Warmth in Modern Architecture
A misconception that critics often have of modern architecture is that it’s cool and cold. However, the opposite could be argued. A large number of modern designs feature elements that are naturally warm and inviting, such as wood and stone.
Floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces, large windows that let in natural light and vaulted post and beam ceilings— what could add more character and warmth than these wonderfully modern features? While the pattern may be linear, clean and uncluttered—there is definitely warmth to be found in modern architecture.
Also, most modern plans contain fewer walls, thereby creating a more welcoming, open living space that most people crave. Are you loving modern architecture yet? If you still desire a bit of traditional style, then keep reading….
Traditional and Modern Architecture Mix Well Together
They can co-exist. Mixing traditional and modern architectural elements works well when done properly and with a slight hand of restraint.
There are numerous examples of successful meshing of these two, seemingly opposing, styles together into one cohesive design. Look to the image below— it’s a exemplary illustration of a modern and traditional union. The mixture of cedar shingles with modern structural elements creates a very unique and appealing home.
Of course, this is not a design marriage for the faint of heart. One would have to be daring in order to have the nerve to try it. Obviously, it is best to attempt this only under the supervised watch of a skilled design architect. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds —modern and traditional.
What’s not to love about modern architecture! We have proven that modern designs are unique, warm, inviting and open creations of structural beauty. Even better, you can add traditional elements into a modern design and get the best of both design worlds.
