When architectural home design trends change, it is usually driven by shifts in cultural values. Since the pandemic began, people have changed how they view and use their living spaces, and interior and exterior design has become less of a luxury and more of a necessity.
In the 1940s and 1950s, modern architectural home design revolutionized the look of new housing with its clean, geometric lines, warm woods, and neutral tones. Born as a rejection of earlier styles, less was suddenly more, and designing a home was about finding a design where “form follows function” – a philosophy that still inspires architects and interior designers today.
Today’s modern homes can be easily distinguished by their minimalist approach and emphasis on function over form. These homes emphasize clean lines and geometric shapes, the use of natural materials and neutral color palettes, and celebrate natural light with large windows and open-concept living spaces. By embracing free-flowing spaces and rejecting clutter, modern home design is also known for bringing the outside in and vice versa to create versatile living spaces that relate to the natural landscape around them.
Thoughtfully designed and immaculately maintained, this inviting 4-story home in Atlanta’s Lake Claire neighborhood is a superb example of the modern architecture that the city has to offer. Bathed in natural light through its window walls, accented by its high ceilings and open floor plan, this Atlanta home has all the qualities one could want in a modern home.
This home offers all the modern conveniences of modern luxury homes and is retrofitted with the latest smart home amenities. With a touch of a button on your phone, you can do everything from turning on the lights and adjusting the temperature to starting the irrigation system and opening the garage door.
The recently renovated kitchen is equally impressive, with its custom soft close cabinets, quartz countertops, French door refrigerator and a vanishing wall of windows that beautifully connects the kitchen and spacious back deck. Forget the stairs and navigate all 4 floors via the state-of-the-art hydraulic elevator that provides access to an on-site media room, humidity-controlled wine cellar, exercise room and the stunning rooftop terrace.
The best part? All of these incredible features can be found in this striking contemporary luxury home just steps from the shops and restaurants of Candler Park and the arts and entertainment district of Pullman Yards.
