A modern home is different because modern refers to a specific time period and style that includes a lot of open space, geometric lines, and a simple design approach. There are modern contemporary house plans available in this collection but not all of the plans you’ll find here feature the modern architecture style.

We offer contemporary floor plans in many different architectural styles and sizes. Whether you’re looking for a craftsman narrow lot plan with minimal square footage or a large home with mid-century modern flair, you’ll find it here.

Features of Current Contemporary Home Designs

Throughout the late 1960s and into the '70s, these trending homes became quite popular. The contemporary style is often a combination of several architectural styles, but it incorporates features that are currently trending or ahead of the curve. Some of the characteristics often include:

  • Open floor plans that make the space feel larger.
  • Two levels, sometimes more, with the master usually located on the main level.
  • Garage placement on the front of the home for cost-effectiveness.
  • Shallow pitched roofs that often extend from a higher level down over the lower level.
  • Simple, clean lines that are attractive and cost-effective to build.
  • Large windows that let in a lot of natural light. They are sometimes trapezoidal in shape following the roofline pitch in the gables.
  • Exteriors that are a mix of materials, such as wood, brick, rock, siding, and stucco.
  • Vertical ornamentation is in simple patterns.

Contemporary homes are still being built across the nation and have been a very popular style both in tract home developments and custom home neighborhoods.
