The design world is changing rapidly in 2021.
For decades, architects have used the classic template of a traditional “family” or “small house” as a foundation for their designs.
Today, architects are increasingly building with a more sophisticated approach, using modern design language and technology to create contemporary, minimalist and unique homes.
A new generation of architects are embracing a new approach to design that focuses on sustainability, comfort, style and energy.
In a new series, The Washington Post looks at how these new architects are redefining how people live and how we can live better in a changing and increasingly connected world.
Here are 10 tips for living like a modern architect.
Get an energy bill.
For most homes, an energy savings plan (ESP) is the best way to get your energy bills under control.
But if you’re living in an urban environment, it can also be a valuable way to keep the lights on, keep your doors and windows open, keep you from having to worry about your air conditioning.
So when you’re shopping for a home, look for an energy plan that includes energy efficiency, solar energy and other smart technologies that can help save energy.
You may also be surprised by the results.
If you’re a homeowner, you can save money on your energy bill by keeping a home energy efficient and turning on the air conditioner more often.
Be thoughtful about the appliances.
Many of today’s smart appliances are designed to help us be less conscious of what we eat, drink and breathe.
These appliances often have sophisticated sensors and software that track how we use our energy, how often we use it and even how much we use.
In most cases, the smart appliances use data from sensors and sensors to know when you use them.
The most important thing to consider when choosing the appliances is whether or not they’re designed to be used daily.
The smart appliances also have a lot of sensors to monitor how much energy is consumed and how much you consume in a given day.
Get creative with your space.
When it comes to the design of your home, consider the possibilities.
If it’s a big room with lots of windows and large windows, consider using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to add a sense of privacy.
If the space is small and narrow, consider adding a walk-in closet to create a little extra space between you and the sunlight.
If your room is small with a lot on the ground floor and a lot to walk around, consider getting rid of some of the more decorative elements.
If there’s a lot hanging on the walls, consider a wall-mounted light that will illuminate the space and make the room feel more inviting.
Decide how you want your bathroom to look.
The bathroom is the most important part of a modern home, so you can choose a style that’s comfortable, practical and easy to maintain.
If an old bathroom is your primary space, consider making it a place where you shower and change, where you use the bathroom in the morning, when you have time for a bath and wash, or where you can sit or lie down to relax.
Keep a budget.
To save money, you need to be flexible about your needs and how you spend your money.
If a few things don’t add up, consider cutting things or eliminating them.
You might not need a walkway or a fireplace to get you out of the house, but you might want a different bathroom or a different set of appliances.
For example, you might need a large, round tub to make it easier for you to change when you need them.
If so, consider moving the tub.
If not, consider taking it out of storage.
If that doesn’t work, consider buying an extra tub to add to your space and possibly get it cleaned and refinished.
Choose a good energy efficient energy source.
If possible, find a source of energy that’s a part of your budget and is designed to make you feel comfortable and safe.
The key is to have a low-carbon energy source, such as solar energy, and then a long-lasting, environmentally friendly energy source that will last for a long time.
If using solar energy is your main source of income, consider finding a solar-powered bathroom.
If heating is a part or a major part of the budget, consider choosing a gas-powered fireplace, or finding a gas grill for use with your appliances.
If both are important to you, then you might consider choosing one or both energy sources.
You could also consider investing in a new furnace.
Get a smart thermostat.
You can save a lot more energy by installing a smart energy thermostator, which will automatically adjust your thermostats based on how much electricity you use and the amount of CO2 you breathe.
