Modern House Plans
Modern House Plans

Modern House Plans are always a bit controversial. Is this style modern or contemporary? Many use these two style terms interchangeably, making it confusing on where to draw the line. We have concluded that , “modern” is a style of its own, while “contemporary” can encompass many different styles that are current or en vogue. We view modern home design as timeless and iconic, like the work of Eames, Wright and Saarinen. Historically speaking, modern was “form follows function” of the Bauhaus, open floor plans and clean lines. Modern is always forward thinking and innovative as it started as a radical opposition to popular decorative movements of the early 19th century Mark Stewart Ultra Modern Design includes crisp, sharp geometry and almost always will be accompanied by warm material use that creates a dynamic tension and contrast that is always energetic and comfortable at the same time. We have produced this collection of unique house plans that share all of these characteristics and are affordable to build at the same time. If you have any questions about these home design or floor plans, don’t hesitate to call or email us. We can also design Custom Modern House Plans if you have an idea in mind!
