modern style home


Open and airy, the Mid-Century Modern style counted as one of its many fans a certain Frank Lloyd Wright, who trained architects in this style of design.

With its flat planes, changes in elevation and open space, Mid-Century Modern could be considered the natural progression from Industrial and International Styles. Its extensive use of glass bridges the human area with the outdoors, to integrate with nature and stimulate the senses.

Inside, a much greater reliance on and usage of natural elements like wood and stone separate this style from other Modern styles. Interior walls do not have to reach to the ceiling to accomplish their mission, and along with changes in elevation and different height cabinets, create different depths in the space.
