The style of architecture in Marbella is one of the most popular architectural styles in recent years – modern minimalist style. It is a type of architecture developed during the 21st century and has unique characteristics that make it an excellent choice for home spaces.
What is modern style?
Modern architecture is made up of different trends and styles, which were developed thanks to the use of materials such as steel and reinforced concrete, and the technological advances implemented during the 21st century.
Unlike older designs, the modern style focuses on lighter and less ornate designs, by simplifying forms and allowing lighting to gain greater prominence. Modern style is dominated by rectangular shapes combined with vertical and horizontal lines, which is why cube-shaped designs are so characteristic of this architecture.
The use of reinforced concrete and steel structures enables greater freedom in structural designs. It also uses traditional materials, such as brick, wood or stone, in a simpler, unadorned way, and shows its nature. Modern architecture creates open and wide spaces, keeping simplicity in design, so it does not divide the interior of the spaces into rooms, but follows a continuous style.
In order to make light the most important element, the modern style uses large windows to make the most of the natural light in every corner of the building. Traditional facades are removed and replaced with glass and steel walls.
Since light plays a major role in modern architectural design, the orientation and use of the sun is of great importance. To this end, overhangs and pergolas are used to provide more shade in summer and more light in winter. In addition, the building is integrated into the natural terrain in order to create a design that is more closely related to the natural.
How does it differ from contemporary architecture?
Modern and contemporary architecture have several similarities in terms of design. Both follow the same guidelines in terms of using new materials and making changes to improve buildings, thanks to materials with greater strength and durability.
However, they differ in that contemporary architecture emerged at the end of the 1980s, and its main purpose is to create designs and installations with greater environmental comfort and improved sustainability. Furthermore, in this architecture greater importance is given to the use of natural, non-polluting and recyclable materials.
