20th Century Residential Architecture – Modernist Property Images, Examples & Discussion

Modern Home

Modern Homes date from the 20th century and exhibit a simple, clean style. Materials such as exposed concrete, large planes of glass and a strong horizontality are typical. Underlying most modern homes is a belief in the maxim ‘form follows function’, thus columns and slabs are expressed.

Many Modern properties used white as the predominant colour. Sometimes this is offset with planes of colour, such as in mid-period Le Corbusier houses or in the De Stijl buildings. There is a wide variety of forms from rectilinear – such as the Farnsworth House – to organic – such as the Arango Residence.
