House Style of the Month – Contemporary

by | Nov 10, 2014 | St Cloud Residential Home Plans

This month we are talking about “Contemporary” style of homes. The contemporary style is today’s version of the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie Style.

Characteristics of the Contemporary style home include:

  1. Lots of glass
  2. Clean lines
  3. Gable, shed and some hip roofs
  4. Occasionally a clerestory roof was used
  5. Integrate the indoors and outdoors together
  6. Any type of windows (not double-hung windows)
  7. Flush garage doors
  8. Open plan
  9. Architects and designers try to be original
  10. Natural materials
  11. Wing walls
  12. Simplicity
  13. Sky lights
  14. First to have decks
