Modern House Plans

House design in the Modern style with stained wood lap siding and stone exterior.

In a modern home plan, you’ll typically find open floor plans, a lot of windows and vaulted ceilings somewhere in the space. Also referred to as Art Deco, this architectural style uses geometrical elements and simple designs with clean lines to achieve a refined look.

This style, established in the 1920s, differs from contemporary house plans. Modern refers to a consistent approach in design whereas contemporary homes include the latest design trends. That being said, it’s common to see modern house plans with contemporary elements.

Whether you’re looking for a large home with a lot of square footage or a small modern house plan, you’ll find it in our collection. We work with our designers to provide the plans that best represent modern architecture for our customers.
