Contemporary homes offer a clean and cutting-edge aesthetic, with texture, light, shape, and massing taking center stage. This style lends itself to homes of all sizes, as any square footage can benefit from the ingenuity of well-placed angles, curves, and the punctuation of light and natural views. Glass and juxtapositions of transparency and solidity are often used, and ornamentation is minimal and intentional to let the architecture be the focus.
Contemporary homes often have unique rooflines, including sloped, flat, slanted, and butterfly, and these shapes are found in Mid-Century Modern styles as well. The roof shapes can help maximize natural light with clerestory windows and angles.
Floor plans are open, with an emphasis on flow and indoor and outdoor living space.
