Architecture has evolved in terms of style from separate rooms with a distinct purpose for example kitchen, dining rooms to Open plan living where you can enjoy the benefits of all under one roof. The concept of Open plan living which came into existence in the 1970’s over powered this olden system and paved a way to the new era of modern architecture called “de rigour”.
People now prefer to have a free flowing area without any interruption of internal walls or doors. So the spaces are melded and merged seamlessly, and now your friends or relatives can come and interact in an open plan environment. This modern trend reflects the modern lifestyle and is ideal for those currently living in an older style home. Rather than investing in a new home an open plan structure can be created allowing you to maximise the potential of your current space.
