FEATURED Contemporary Homes

IN OR

Contemporary Style homes are modern-era residences and became popular in the 1960's and 1970's. The style tends to incorporate large plate glass windows, metal or concrete. Some may have a more "natural" appearance using wood or stone to fit into surroundings. The forms are often geometric in ways that would not have been feasible with previous building techniques. They tend to be asymmetric. Huge windows and sliding glass doors allowing for much natural lighting and a "clean" smooth look for both the design of the home and the landscaping are typical. A "flow" between the interior and exterior as well as an internal flow is facilitated by large entrances and open plan internal spaces. Contemporary architecture is a wide classification of recent building designs that has found consistent expression in both residential and commercial structures. Architects of contemporary structures are known for creating buildings free from previous historical styles, while also experimenting with some of the many latest materials that are now available to the construction industry. Contemporary properties are likely to be highly functional and may push the restrictions of what can be defined as contemporary. One area of contemporary housing that can draw much interest is the roof. In today's modern world, flat overhanging roofs are a typical way to add eye-catching design components, while providing additional shady regions adjoining to the structure and still preserve the overall structure from the elements. A few bold architects have even gone so far as to include trees to the top of their buildings to enable natural cooling and also to create a building that is more compatible with the natural surroundings. One of the more significant features of contemporary homes is the use of natural light to light up the interior of the building. This goal can be accomplished through the presence of skylights on a flat or low-pitched roof and the prevalence of large window areas along the exterior walls. To further distinguish the interior of the building, large regular spaces may be achieved by the modification or removal of many interior walls. Exposed beams, sanded floors and large areas of lightly coloured ceilings (and walls) are three more characteristics that often add to the airy sensation of contemporary properties. Most Contemporary houses tap design history and readily borrow elements from a host of historical designs, mixing them up to create an idealized, nostalgic style that does not indicate any specific time period — unlike revival styles of previous generations. Almost all Contemporary houses share typical design elements such as tall, irregularly formed windows, bold geometric shapes, and irregular facades and surface plans. The Contemporary house's floor plan is open, with very little doors and walls. In keeping with today's lifestyles, it is tailored to be functional, but without the frigid, machinelike feel of the Modern style. Because of the open, easy design of the Contemporary homes and property, it is not difficult to sell them. Contemporary condos and contemporary townhouses can be found for sale all over.
