5 amazing terrace designs
The world we live in today is a starship of architectural manifestations. We have so many high rises and avant-garde buildings that it is hard to fit in the masses with the city centers. We are now designing high rises and skyscraper tall enough to accommodate several residential, commercial and economic activities at once. These tall spaces allow us to accommodate a number of people in a relatively small amount of space, but maybe, all in all, these compact housing formations are doing us a disservice.
There are several uniquely designed skyscrapers that offer residents balconies but these are indeed few and far in-between. Most people live in generic apartment buildings that do not have any balconies or terraces to offer. However, these small architectural interventions are an important part of daily life, and having a terrace can make a lot of difference in the mood and play of day-to-day activities. So below, we’ll be taking a look at some amazing terrace ideas for small homes and apartments.
- Playing with colors
This terrace is in a long and narrow formation, but the layout has taken nothing away from the exuberance of the aesthetic. Each and every element – from the fake grass to the multi-colored furniture adds a playfully vivid vibe to the entire setting. Sitting here after a long way of hard work will certainly elevate the mood of the user. The sliding glass door has made a part of the exterior setting an integral part of the indoors too.
- Courtyard terrace
This kind of a terrace looks down on a central courtyard and shares a view with the residents of the midrise. The unified look may make for a boring overall view but the pool intervention definitely spices it up. Aside from that, the chic, contemporary style of the terraces design – including the artwork, lighting and the furniture – make for a refreshing design.
- Simple Terrace
The most conventional kind of terrace found in the contemporary building design, this one is an inherent part of the interiors itself. An extension of the lounge, it divides the space into two distinct parts – the inside and the outside – with a transparent barrier in between. The overall impact is certainly rejuvenating.
- Small style
This kind of a terrace enables you to look out the view from your very own small outcropping. It is small in size but huge in impact. You can decorate it with artful furniture and even carry out small dinner gatherings in such a space. The overall aesthetic is unique and tailored for apartment living.
- Condo style
The floor-to-ceiling window formation makes the entire space a living terrace. The design is five-star and classy and definitely brings out the best of contemporary. The high-end vibe of this aesthetic may only be incorporated in larger condos as opposed to small apartment homes, though.
