Contemporary House Plans
Contemporary home designs, also referred to as “modern”, became a popular architectural style from the 1940s to 1970s. The Contemporary house style is characterized by a generous use of windows for natural lighting and a highly functional, open floor plan. Smaller house plans typically feature a low-pitched roof and minimalistic exterior design blending different building materials.
The Contemporary style house plan has remained popular through the 1990s and today they offer so much personality in design that it can be difficult for homeowners to decide on the right one to suit their lifestyles. Common features of a Contemporary home design include a spacious, open floor plan, perfect for entertaining family and guests, and large, tall windows on one or two stories. This style of house plan is often found in a “U” or “L” shape to incorporate outdoor living space into the design.
The exterior of Contemporary house plans is often marked by geometric shapes and irregular, asymmetrical facades that are pleasing to the eye. One of biggest advantages of a Contemporary style house plan is its versatility; additions and renovations can easily be added in the future to provide more space for growing families. Whether it’s a cozy two-bedroom or spacious five-bedroom home, the Contemporary style home can be customized to create the perfect first or second home.
