[en] Circular architecture is back in fashion. Many architects have it in mind as a possibility when designing houses, being inspired by traditional yurts, common in Mongolian and eastern european culture as a means of protecting them from the climate. There are common sense reasons behind them and they are easy to understand: circular constructions hold up better against approaching winds; the rounded roofs help to avoid air-planning which can damage the structure; as there are no corners, the saving on material usage could amount to between 15 to 20% less than on a rectangular structure, which makes them much more energy efficient.
In houses with a more conventional structure, many interior designers opt for furniture with curved edges or curved walls and structures which add a certain air of dynamism to living spaces and reinforce ideas of visual communication. Curved designs in bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms can now be seen more than ever along with the use of handles that match this style, such as those that are available in the Viefe® catalogue, which can be easily accessed via our web page.
