Modern Spaces with an OpenPlan Design Approach
September 29, 2018The OpenPlan design has become a trend in the decoration of modern spaces, generating a continuous and fluid spatiality approaching new interior design and remodeling opportunities that integrate the said collective spaces. In residential architecture open schemes generally comprehend main spaces such as the kitchen, living room, dining room, and sometimes the study. These new spaces have also transformed domestic social patterns, facilitating a shared and participatory life within a society.
As Colombian architects, focused on creative and innovative processes, we work on the concept of open plants that we implement in each of our contemporary designs for modern spaces. echeverrimontes is a firm of professionals in design with more than 15 years of experience in the architectural market, highlighted by the quality of the projects we carry out and the use of the latest technologies in the computer design industry.
Beginnings of the OpenPlan Concept in Modern SpacesIn the modern tradition, architects such as Mies Van der Rohe or Norman Foster, developed a research practice in design working with continuous open spaces, initially for domestic architecture and thereafter for industrial plants. Little by little, the concept was integrated into hybrid spaces, where living and working in one place became an attraction for small-scale creatives and industries. This way came to be born the widely known concept of the loft, especially in New York and some places of London.
During the 60s and 70s, architects and interior designers used to work with versatile spaces that were adapted to the conditions and needs dictated by the social and business dynamics. They sought to take advantage of elements such as furniture and lighting, without affecting the fluidity of the continuous space wanted. After these proposals, the OpenPlan, or Planta Libre style is gradually adopted in projects of different sizes and scales, derived in concepts such as minimum spaces to inhabit, in which the fluid and integrated space generate opportunities to take advantage of very small areas with multifunctional furniture.
Within the architectural design of modern spaces, the detailing of the space is the most relevant elements of a composition, even using avant-garde minimalist interior design. By integrating the different environments in the same space, it is possible to achieve a more efficient scheme and facilitate mobility within it. The concept of open and fluid spaces integrates day-to-day activities with spaces for work that perfectly adhere to the new trends of collective activity and creative environments.
From the industrial revolution, new materials and construction techniques make it possible to generate a continuous spatiality, without structural constraints, which multiplies the functional possibilities for the composition. Thus, traditional architecture of heavy walls, closed spaces, and long corridors, give rise to open spaces that are very well lit and ventilated. Currently, the design of large modern spaces, in which different social activities are carried out (residential, work, etc.) or even recreational, allows providing versatile spaces with multiple possibilities that host creative or collaborative environments typical of new trends in space design.
Role of the OpenPlan Concept in Modern SpacesThe OpenPlan concept seeks to project a more dynamic architecture, in which the possibilities of functional space are enhanced. In addition, new fields in interior design are opened to experiment, removing physical barriers and promoting social interaction.
