Modern Contemporary Home Architecture (Top 10)

modern contemporary architecture (a term coined by us) is an amalgamation of two similar – yet distinct – disciplines of home design, structure, and construction. “Modern Home Architecture” – born in the 1900s, was created as a means to break-away from the common architectural styles of the time period and create a revolution. “Contemporary Home Architecture”  – coming at a later date, is a means to look towards the FUTURE of design and create drastically alternative styles. Thus modern contemporary was born as fusion of these two now somewhat similar forms of home design which incorporates the best of both. Most architects and home builders attribute their creations to one or the other, because these two architectural styles have become overlapped and misconstrued throughout time. Simply put, most don’t know one from the other in today’s era, but we have looked through a few architectural designs and have picked 10 that we believe represent our new term, Modern Contemporary, to the fullest – so we can finally end the misunderstanding of which term a home belongs to and lead a new revolution towards the future, harmony, and one term that fully incorporates homes that are more than the norm – homes that are truly works of art.

Modern Contemporary Styling is a means to explain homes that have evolved beyond being just a home. They are homes that were designed to be works of pure architectural art from the inside out. From interior design and construction to exterior aesthetics – these 10 homes represent Modern Contemporary and lead a wave of future home design.

With strong angles deep cuts and opaque glass for an exterior, this home fits right in with taking modern home designs and applying futuristic concepts

Simply put, boxing out each individual section of the home and applying deep insets, while using inconsistent walling, draws the eyes of all that pass this home by. While also using window walls to allows the colors from inside to add spice to the home

Time to put this list into full throttle; now we reach homes where the architectural design has been thought-out from every aspect. As you can see with this beautiful home – being an art piece was definitely at the forefront of intentions.

As stated in our last listing of Top 7 Renovations for 2018
Modern Contemporary design is mostly for those who are heavy into the art world and want to reflect that interest in their homes. Turning their homes into pieces of art.

Ways to accomplish:
Total remodeling of an old home from the ground up or a new build-out and construction of a new property.
Adding glass walls, utilizing at least 1 geometric shape in the exterior, utilizing insets, protrusions, inconsistent materials and textures, contrasting colors,  large pieces that protrude outward from the home, and breaks in the exterior flow of the walls – otherwise known as inconsistent walling.

Elements utilized: opposing materials, glass walls, LED lighting, protruding elements, inlets,

Taking a quick glance we see a divergence from the normal contrast of black and white. This home effortlessly utilizes grey as the main color and a cherry wood oak accent color.

Deep insets are used to create space around the cherry wood oak block – turning it into the main focal point – and around the floor-to-ceiling windows. An Extended protrusion is used to create space for the secluded in-home pool that is attached directly to the family area.

Just look at how well these dark colors play with each other; while having the darkest of the three on a featureless material and the other two sitting against different textures of brick walling.

Now this home is the exact definition of what it means to “protrude”: extend beyond or above a surface.

Well if the last home gave a visual representation of protrude, this home definitely take the cake for inconsistent walling, insets, and more than one geometric shape!
