Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
The “New Rich” Generation has evolved from the lessons learned during the Great Recession and is characterized by a passionate “Socially Responsible” people that have found the key to having a richer quality of life is by having less baggage to maintain and more time to live a healthier and fulfilling lifestyle while truly belonging to a community. These people have found that getting to “Less” is about living a more sophisticated, efficient, and fulfilling lifestyle by creatively streamlining and tailoring one’s living patterns and environment. When you do this right, you find that you are empowered to set apart more time to enjoy the things that attribute to a richer quality of life. This “New Rich” Generation is not age specific; rather, it is defined by a like minded demographic that is a part of an empowering, sophisticated social movement that has chosen to invest in what matters most to them.
Here is how one talented Architect is taking on the challenge to support the “New Rich” living style through Green Building Community Design. Rani Guram, Architect specializing in Green Building and Socially Responsible Land Planning design (http://www.GuramArchitects.com), is incorporating the characteristics of the “New Rich” lifestyle by creating sophisticated Home and Community design for efficient and empowering living environments. Her designs empower people to live Large by consuming Less when living in her uniquely tailored Smart Designs that are created to reduce the time, energy, and resources typically spent on dwellings in traditional living environments.
According to Rani: “Too often people run the rat race of life trying to fulfill what they believe is the American dream, and they complain about its toll on their health, relationships, and personal motivation to maintain this "dream". They just say ‘well, that is the way it is, this is how we all have to live if we are going to keep up with the Jones'. Then many lost their homes during the Great Recession and realized all the years of energy and resources they put into that investment blew away in a matter of a few years. They know now there must be a better way. Well, I am offering a solution, through my Creative Living Designs that can help change the course of our lives to start enjoying a better quality of life. As an Architect and Community Designer for Rani Guram Architects LLC (http://www.GuramArchitects.com), I explore how living environments can change people’s lives positively. I strongly believe that the trend in our future housing market and urban development process will steer away from the typical 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, single family lot suburban prototype, to a new highly evolved and efficient home design within a Village Community Development. This shift or evolution in the housing trend is purposed to economize the consumption of our personal resources, our natural environment's resources, our energy and time, in order to support lifestyle changes that allow for more free time to enjoy personal interests, healthy physical activity, and quality supportive social interaction.”
Here are some important statistics that influence and have characterized the New Rich way of thinking. More people live alone now than at any other time in history. According to an article in USA Today (http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2012-05-02/living-alone/54585114/1) Census data released in May of 2012 says 31 million households in 2010 consisted of just one person, 4 million more than 2000. According to the new data, singles make up 27% of U.S. households; in several large cities, including New York, San Francisco, Atlanta and Washington, D.C., it's more than 40%.
So what does this startling statistic mean for the future housing trend?
According to Rani, “We cannot keep designing as usual these 3 bedroom 2 ½ bath houses that we once believed we had to have to keep the resale value. Now, we must acknowledge the significant shift in our demographics and the ideals the “New Rich” generation values in life and for the natural environment, and start designing for their particular needs and living and social habits. I have purposed to create designs that are directed by principles tailored for the sophisticated lifestyle of this “New Rich” generation, as well as for the growing single population, who want more of life through efficiency in living and more access to vibrant, supportive, social interaction. Architects these days have to start thinking differently when designing homes, we must think sophisticated efficiency in design and how to make more out of less."
