The idea of modern architecture in general first originated around the 1920s – 1930s. Another name for Modern home style is Contemporary Style. These buildings being built will be very unique and “futuristic” because no one else is interested in this new type of house style. There are two types of modern styles and contemporary styles that follow certain rules.
The first rule to look for in a building when deciding whether it is a modern home is the use of simple forms and materials. Most modern homes now tend to use simple shapes such as parallel lines, zig-zag patterns, and other modern shapes. The use of materials is also simple for these houses. Some materials used in modern homes are plastering, wood, concrete, and metal. The roofs of this building style are usually flat or tilted to one side of the roof. The use of cantilevered roofs and floors is also a very new concept and is widely used in modern homes.
The interiors of these houses are usually very open. This can be called an open style house plan. The house will also have very high vaulted ceilings and use of large windows on the roof and exterior walls. The size and shape of the window is a lot so this gives the house a more modern look. These windows will allow a lot of light during the day, to illuminate the house. Some materials that will be used in the interior are glass blocks and various types of metals.
The best thing to remember is that modern and contemporary house plans are very simple, but not boring. I hope after this article you can see the modern house plans that you see.
