Modern Home Design in Nepal
Nepalese people have gone to
abroad in a huge number. They earn enough money and they have a dream of building
their own house in their desirable city to make their living standard same as
they had when they were living abroad.
For this reason, various styles
of modern home design in Nepal have been popular specially in the prime cities like
Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan and Butwal. Some of the popular architectures with
Skillsewa’s design has been illustrated in this article.
Neoclassical Design of Houses
Neoclassical Design originated since the time of Neoclassical movement in France and Italy. As there are a lot of Nepalese people going to France, this architecture in building design has recently been popular in Nepal. As France has a good reputation for its history in Europe, this architecture is one of the most widely acclaimed architecture in entire Europe and western world. One of the most popular neoclassical designs is the white house of United States.
Neoclassical style became popular in Nepal because of its
grandeur with simplicity in geometry. Here are some more features of
Rows of columns: Ionic columns and Corinthian columns are
placed in rows.
Rectangular or square floor plans: The geometry of the
building is kept rectangular or square
Very little ornamentation: Only a few type of ornamental
elements is kept in the building.
Flexibility in roofing: All the roof styles like domed roof,
flat roof and gable roofs are popular.
Neoclassical design is different from classical design in
that the shades of projection or recession in neoclassical design is lesser
than that in classical design.
Apart from Europe, Asian countries like Japan and Philippines,
North American countries like United States and Mexico and many Latin countries
like Brazil, Argentina and Colombia have adopted Neoclassical design for

Since the 19th century, Neoclassical style
started losing its purity and right now in Nepal, any house design with
classical architecture from Greek and Rome is also classified under
Neoclassical Design. Here is an example of Neoclassical design.
Box Type Design of House
Box Types Design also
comes under modern design. The Box design have become popular because they give
urban look to the whole community. The space in urban area is very less, so
incorporating classical and lavish design can be too costly and not feasible
according to architectural point of view.
Open concept design,
large windows, unobstructed living area, interaction with surrounding and right
angle finishes are the most important features of Box Type House Design. In Box
Type design, no space is wasted around corners and center because of
architectural designs. Every room is visible from a single angle.
Contemporary Design of Houses
Contemporary design of houses doesn’t have the best sense of
structure as compared to box type design of house. But it gives contrasts, cool
tones, curved lines and attention to quality. There is a saying that “lesser is
more” in contemporary design of houses.
Contemporary design focuses on having spaces. For example,
you will have an open dining space rather than an enclosed dining room. The
colors used are neutral color palette which includes white, grey, cream color,
natural wood color. Natural materials are used and shown. For example, it is a
normal idea to show part of brick wall in interior in contemporary design. Big
windows and track lighting are the specialty of lighting used in contemporary
There might be various to contemporary designs because of the fact that contemporary design of houses is always evolving. New trends can add but old traditional looks are still incorporated. Contemporary Design blends into nature just because it deals with curves and things in nature are also curved.
