Contemporary House Plans
Contemporary style plans refer to unique house plans and modern home plans that have a conemporary look. In fact, the unique home shapes, modern forms, and contemporary materials reflect Art Moderne or International styles. The Bauhaus movement in Germany reinvented architecture in its purest form, focusing on modern function and shunning ornamentation. Therefore, modern flat roofs, unique cube shapes with curved
adornments, clean lines, open floor plans, and the use of industrial-like
materials, such as concrete, glass, and steel are common. In this collection of
modern home plans and contemporary homes by Alan Mascord Design Associates, Inc., exterior decoration
is downplayed, allowing simple shapes to take precedence. For example, bands of
windows or an arresting entry, often provide the focal point on the homes'
elevations while free-flowing floor plans inside lend convenience. Far from cold
and unlivable, these homes prove that "Contemporary" is a mantra for uniqueness,
functionality and beauty.
