Modern Homes

 

Mid-Century Home features mid-century and modern homes designed by some of the most influential modernist architects of the 20th century: Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, Donald Wexler, Craig Ellwood and John Lautner are only few of them.

We want to show how contemporary architects build modern homes following the same principles of their famous predecessors. That is why, in this section, you will find a curation of contemporary homes built today but following modernist principles.

We only feature homes from contemporary architects who we believe respect the modernist principles of building and prove how Modernism is very much alive.
