Contemporary houses

The modern style originated at the beginning of the 20th century, taking into account changes in construction technologies and the appearance of new materials. Architects and designers deliberately abandoned the complex details and ornate Victorian era. Today they continue to challenge themselves to create bold and bright houses designs.

Architects use straight lines of walls, flat or shed roofs, panoramic windows, and covered patios to create house designs in high-tech styles and minimalism. A modern house should not require much effort to operate. For the construction of a residential house, you can use all the known building materials and structures. Modern frame houses are most popular all over the world, thanks to high energy efficiency. But here you can see modern brick houses, houses made of aerated concrete, monolithic houses, and houses from a bar. Facades are finished with durable plaster, horizontal wooden panels, facing brick or stone. New technologies for making windows allow the house to be light and warm, and sliding glass doors expand the living space beyond the walls of the house. Many house designs are accompanied by photo interiors.

This House plan is suitable for a downsloping lot with a 2 car garage located on the rear. From the open-plan main level, you can enter the large deck above the garage.
