Design trend no. 3: good, cost-effective designs. To keep construction costs low, we'll see multiple roof lines and complexity give way to simplified forms. Gone is the "exploding roof" design paradigm for the straightforward gable roof and rectangular form. Innovative and creative approaches to layouts, storage, curb appeal and so on will be established in the early design stage to ensure that the new designs don't become boring.
