Mid-century Modern architecture is popular among home designs today, and we have a variety of homes that fit this style.

In 20th century post-war America, there was a housing boom that largely included mass-produced, traditional houses. At this time, the Mid-century Modern style was thought to be innovative and left to those with that frame of mind. Joseph Eichler, a progressive real estate developer inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, sought to change that by making custom mid-century modern house plans available to the wider public.

This architectural style was vastly different from the homes built during the 1950s – when Mid-century Modern was introduced – which is one of the reasons it was thought to be innovative.

Mid-century Modern home plans also carried the principles of outdoor living – “bring the outside in”– which meant that these modern floor plans included features such as:

  • Atriums
  • Skylights
  • Indoor pools (or outdoor)

Even today, having these items in your home is considered a luxury, but they’re considered somewhat standard within this style.

The modern version of this architecture keeps many of the same exterior and interior design features but includes more updated amenities inside.
