11. The Wall of Books
Ever wondered where to put your book collection? This futuristic library design uses softly curved walls and turns them into shelves—ample artificial and natural light makes this the perfect spot for some reading in one’s home.
12. Origami House
Nordes, a Russian architecture firm used origami as an inspiration for this house, which manifests itself in faceted walls and sleek lines. With furniture to match, and stark white interiors, this house is ‘futuristic’ at its best.
13. All About Lighting
Lighting plays one of the most important roles in setting the desired atmosphere for a place. To that end, cove lighting and LED lights are becoming increasingly popular to give a contemporary/ modern aesthetic to the space. The house above uses hidden lights to make it seem as though the walls float in space.
14. Showing it off
Another popular aesthetic is showing the material, machinery, and parts of the building in all their raw glory. Not only does this add a contemporary look to the house, but it also is a statement about being true to the original materiality of an object.
The space above is a great way to use colors that contradict, yet complement each other to create a space full of dynamism and interest.
16. The Curve
Furniture plays a vital role in the aesthetic one is going for in a space. Consider the space above, where the sofa set with sweeping curves makes for a trendy, futuristic and artful feel to the house.
17. All Glass
The corner glass window is quite ubiquitous in modern architecture and has been a widely adopted detail for ages. This window, however, gets rid of all the mullions to make the roof float over the living room without any apparent support system and lends a unique quality to the space!
18. All About Material
We’ve seen stainless steel and metal being used in restaurants and bars, but why not adopt the shiny metallic aesthetic for our homes? This kitchen island coupled with a bookshelf uses stainless steel to offset the dark grey matt finish for a futurist look.
19. Color Me Crazy
Modern and contemporary spaces don’t have to be white or grey. A color that stands out in the space, like a bright red in the case of this kitchen can give character to the space, not look sterile, and still look like a futuristic home.
20. The Loft
What could be better than investing in modern loft living? The one above as it all—exposed concrete and steel columns, open ductwork, ample light, and a contemporary staircase to tie the futuristic look.
What could be better than watching a movie in the middle of calm waters stretching to the horizon? The cinema is one of the most unique experiences in the world as it boasts of a floating screen and seats, and food being served at regular intervals.
