Modern architecture is a style of building that emphasizes a functional and streamlined form. Modern homes, in particular, are designed to have a clean and minimalistic feel. As a modern home builder, Trophy Signature Homes has taken the influences of this architectural style and created revolutionary homes of unmatched value through the relentless pursuit of efficiency, attainable pricing and a simplified buying experience.
But what makes up the characteristics of a modern home?
Clean lines and shapes
From the exterior to the smallest details inside, modern homes are recognized by their sharp, clean lines and geometric shapes throughout. You won’t find round windows, arched entryways, or ornate designs. Instead, a modern home creates the perfect blank slate for homeowners to work with—oversized rectangular windows to let in light, geometric focal points like an electric fireplace, and simple yet stunning light fixtures. These characteristics add to the uncomplicated nature that has made modern architecture a continuously popular home style.
Asymmetrical yet balanced elevations
Many architecture styles, including craftsman and farmhouse, rely on symmetrical design. But thanks to the large shapes and clean lines modern homes are known for, they can often shake up the exterior with an asymmetrical design. Asymmetrical elevations add plenty of visual interest to the outside of a home, but the right balance is key to curb appeal. Trophy Signature Homes will balance the placement of front doors, windows, details, and garage doors on the exterior of every home to give it the modern feel so many of today’s homeowners are looking for.
Current and contemporary floor plans
The layouts of modern homes are meant to focus on functionality, which is why open and well-defined floor plans are key to this style of architecture. Open-concept main floors in a modern home will typically combine living and dining spaces into one large room, alongside an open and airy kitchen that isn’t blocked off from the rest of the home, as in many traditional architectural styles. To make a home functional for the modern homeowner, removing walls from the shared living spaces helps encourage togetherness and provides a direct line of sight in the home.
Functionality is taken a step further with ample storage space, large bedrooms, and flex rooms that can meet the needs of every family. Whether you need a home office, game room, home gym, or guest suite, the floor plans offered by Trophy Signature Homes help make the most of every square foot of space.
Sought-after features and finishes
Neutral color palettes, simplistic features, and high-end finishes complement the architecture of modern homes. Along with creating a light and bright atmosphere in every room, the quality of products used can go a long way in elevating a space. Trophy Signature Homes takes this a step further by including over $80,000 worth of luxury upgrades in the price of each home. Stainless steel kitchen fixtures, 8-foot doors, cedar ceiling beams, beautifully designed walk-in showers, metal exterior accents, and more come standard in every modern home.
Trophy Signature Homes strives to offer a simplified way of living to homeowners, which is only accentuated by the modern architecture and design that influences our homes. Technological advancements like cleaner air, energy efficiency, water efficiency, home automation, and progressive healthy home technology add a finishing touch to the functional yet beautiful homes we build throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
