Technology has advanced so far that now we can take a virtual tour of our home even though it is just an idea and design on screen. The photographs of housing projects which we see nowadays are not the real site image but a virtual image waiting to take a real shape. From facade to the kitchen, from colour to texture, from size to the layout, everything can be felt in a home for real and lived through the augmented reality even before the construction has begun. The benefit of this is that we can plan and make suggestions and changes, of course with the architect’s advice, thus saving on the time and money.
Today we have brought for you 15 pictures of facades of modern homes. Have a look and if it inspires you make the design your facade.
