These styles, which are sometimes referred to as "retro house" or "prairie style" developed as an attempt to create an architectural style that was uniquely American. The movement was successful, especially in the wake of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which opened many doors for architects. Modern house plans are known for their unique architecture, unexpected angles, asymmetrical shape, and interesting roofline combinations. Modern home designs appeal to those who appreciate fine architecture and a romantic era, when it was believed that perhaps "better homes would create better people."
The interior of modern home plans reflects the style of the exterior, in the sense that they incorporate many unusual features and dramatic lines. For instance, modern home designs typically make use of open floor plans with walls of varying heights to create the effect of separate rooms. Modern home plans also make excellent use of light; creating dramatic lighting effects through strategic placement of large windows and skylights. For a contemporary finishing touch, modern houses often incorporate raw or industrial materials on the interior, such as stone, concrete, or cement.
Finally, modern house plans wouldn’t actually be “modern” if it didn’t incorporate state-of-the-art modern technology, right? For this reason, modern style homes often integrate up-to-date amenities and technologies for the enjoyment, convenience, and security of family and guests.
