Like various other industries the trends in architectural and construction domain have also been under constant change but for the past decade, the shift in the drifts have become faster than ever. With the evolution of modern home designs, home construction is rapidly evolving within the construction companies in Lahore.
Some of the latest trends being seen in Pakistan over the last few years are as follows:
In the wake of ever-increasing energy costs, high fuel charges, and extreme climatic conditions in Lahore, every high-profile construction company in Lahore is more focused on constructing energy-efficient houses. It is not only the need but also a great trend in Pakistan.
Embracing the green movement, passive housing has been one of the latest trends recently. Passive Housing is a highly energy-efficient building standard that saves energy, improves air quality, promotes indoor comfort, and reduce noise pollution. It involves constructing structures that make use of green features.
The green features use super insulation with double glazing on windows, perforated walls to ensure natural insulation and energy recovery ventilation systems to substantially reduce the air leakages. These structures make certain that lower temperatures are maintained indoors resulting in the reduction of energy costs by up to 90%. In this ecological construction, the construction companies in Lahore ensure that the house is oriented and designed to make the best use of sun and shade.
Due to insufficient large vacant plots in most of Pakistan’s metropolitan cities, a new trend of shifting towards the ‘Tiny House Movement’ has surfaced. It is still a relevantly new concept in Pakistan, but people are recognizing most construction companies in Lahore are joining this movement over time. With the rising inflation and other external economic factors on the play, it is getting difficult for the general population to afford a spacious and luxurious place of their own, so they have started opting for tiny houses. It involves constructing smaller houses that optimize space; convert houses to condo-style apartments, merge multipurpose rooms.
