There is no lack of interest on the exterior of this elegant modern home. From the materials used to the attention to detail, each element on this façade draws you in. Even the exposed chimney —seldom a contender to be a focal-point — is a stunning element with great presence.
Despite the facade's strong linear elements, the home sits on a steeply sloping lot. The only flat area was allocated to the carport. The floor plan was laid out in response to the natural features of the property and its orientation.
Homeowners wanted a modern redesign to their home's exterior, so designers kept the long front porch that meets the neighbors, but punctuated it with modern, vertical windows that penetrate the painted brick section of the home's front facade. Then, they added cedar siding to warm up the exterior space. Finally, a navy blue door adds a splash of color to the design of the home's front elevation.
This clean, modern home features a unique facade with a continuous line that wraps from one level to the next. Broad picture windows offer a glimpse at the modern interiors, and artfully placed lighting casts the whole house in a warm glow.
Two sections of the 16-foot ipe screen encasing this modern home dramatically unfold, revealing the home's formal dining room. Two steel box windows also break up the ipe screen. The top floor of the home boasts walls of windows for uninterrupted views.
This modern home, nestled into rolling hills, features large expanses of glass that open up its interiors and take maximum advantage of the rugged view. A low stone fence separates the home from the surrounding grassy expanse.
The exterior of this modern home features a sleek brick-and-wood facade with a metal roof and dark, updated trim. A walkway of pavers lends design distinction to the front path, while gravel beds fit with the home's mod aesthetic.
This beautiful modern home in the hills is a nature lover's dream come true! For it, the architect used two sizes of Western red cedar screening to vent the facade and create a horizontal pattern. Trees and plants become one with the building, and the large windows welcome the outdoors in to create an even more serene environment.
The exterior of this modern home brings together industrial and nature. The concrete facade offers an understated contrast to the surrounding natural landscaping and views, while the wood awning ties the two together.
The welcoming facade of this modern home is a dichotomy -- it's both symmetrical (the shape of the structure) and asymmetrical (the beautifully unbalanced distribution of windows and design elements). A combination of warm wood, metal and glass create a nuanced feel; ornamental grasses and plants bring life and color to the area.
A place for everything, and everything in its place makes a happy kitchen. To create kitchen happiness for these homeowners, designers used drawers disguised as cabinets to help make the best of the space, while maintaining a stylish, modern facade.
