Mid-Century Home showcases a wide array of homes and buildings, both contemporary and mid-century, designed by some of the most influential modernist architects of the 20th century. Notable architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, Donald Wexler, Craig Ellwood, and John Lautner are just a few of the many featured.
Our team carefully curates a daily selection of the most representative mid-century and contemporary homes in order to inspire and spark your imagination. We aim not only to highlight the architectural beauty of these structures, but also to share the stories of their architects and owners.
In choosing the homes we feature, we prioritize architects who respected modernist principles of building, those who influenced their generation and set the standard for the architects of the future. We believe in preserving and celebrating the legacy of these architects, as well as inspiring new generations of architects to continue their work and push the boundaries of modernist design.
