2. Steep pitched roofs When looking at emerging architectural trends to incorporate into your new build or renovation, you can’t go past the pointier-than-ever pitched roofs that are coming through. A roof built with a sloping angle of 35 degrees or more will create an internal void where you can place a beautiful open truss, a scissor truss or rafters – without the need to increase wall height, which can make for a huge cost saving. It also creates space for a mezzanine area that you can use as an additional room. A steep, pitched roof is practical too; it allows for leaf litter and rainwater to clear much faster than a flat or lower-pitched roof. For an eye-catching, contemporary look, mix a steep, pitched roof with asymmetrical roof pitches. It can make for a visual treat whether you’re looking upon it from indoors or out.
