Yup, this is the photo-list of top 50 modern house designs ever built. Some of those homes are seriously popular on the internet which is just another proof of how incredible they are and another reason for you to check them out. Take a look!
Of course, all of those modern house designs are chosen according to my personal taste, so you don’t have to agree about being the best part, because, as everybody else of course, you have your own taste in modern houses. But after you see those photos below, I expect you to at least admit that those homes are truly incredible pieces of modern architecture.
What makes these modern house designs so special and different from others? Well, one of the criteria was location of the house, which often plays important role in the way house is designed. For example, houses designed are almost always built somewhere on a cliff, high above the ocean, or down on a rocky beach, giving its residents an opportunity to enjoy in breathtaking views or relaxing sounds that ocean waves make while crashing into the rocks below the house. Nature will always have huge impact on the house design.
Next, size of the house. Common opinion among people is that house has to be huge or expensive to be beautiful or amazing. This is really, really far from being true. You will notice I picked some pretty small houses (in comparison to others) for this list. For example. Good architects and their clients who have taste and style will together create gorgeous modern house designs, no matter how big the house is at the end.
Speaking of style, this brings us to the next criteria. Style in architecture. This is another thing strongly related to someone’s personality, but you have to admit, when someone has style, this is obvious to everyone. I think architects and owners of those homes have amazing style in architecture and this is one of the reasons why I put those homes on the list.
When we take all criteria described above, we get one and only, “the wow factor”. When you see modern home and its design, you’re either impressed, or not impressed. This can be described as “the wow factor”, and, at the end, this is the main reason why those homes are on this list. All of them attracted my attention, got me all interested and left me impressed, which made me put together this list of top 50 modern house designs at the end.
Front facade is probably the most important part of every house design. Since it is facing public area, it is essential to make sure that the house blends well with the surrounding and fits in the neighborhood in general. These two houses, designed by Antoni Associates and Martin Friedrich Architects, are great examples of elegance and overall sophistication of modern house design, especially when it comes to front facade.
Even though front facade is of somewhat greater importance when it comes to a house design, the backyard facade is far from being unimportant. Next two modern houses are perfect examples of exterior house design facing the backyard where modern house design is complemented with terraces, swimming pools and gardens.
Green roofs are often being used as a key element in sustainable housing. Besides being good for the environment and your home’s overall sustainability, they also add value to a visual appearance of the house. Singapore’s Sky Garden House designed by Guz Architects shows an outstanding green roof being part of the modern house design.
Wider Los Angeles area, especially Hollywood, Bel Air and Beverly Hills are packed with breathtaking modern mansions. While big modern houses might not be everyone’s cup of tea, they can be really interesting and impressive pieces of architecture. Just like this modern mansion on 1232 Sunset Plaza Drive.
