Mid-Century Home features contemporary homes and buildings designed by some of the most influential modernist architects of the 20th century and built during the mid-century period: Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, Donald Wexler, Craig Ellwood and John Lautner are few of them.
Every day we curate a selection of the most representative mid-century and contemporary style homes, to inspire and make you dream but also to share the story of their architects and owners.
We choose homes designed by architects who we believe respected the modernist principles of building, influenced their generation and set the bar for the architects to come.
