CONTEMPORARY STYLE HOUSING
Contemporary style houses are very modern. They are very geometric and don't have a lot of abstract shapes. The interiors of contemporary houses have open floor plans.

Contemporary style homes first started appearing in the early 1900s.
The term "Contemporary Architecture" refers to architecture of the present day.
Other forms of Modern style housing include
Irregular, asymmetrical façade
Strong, geometric shapes
Large windows, often tall and seemingly randomly placed in the façade
One or two stories
Distinctive roofline — sometimes flat, other times gabled — usually with wide eave overhang
Natural, often local, building materials
Sustainable, eco-friendly materials, such as bamboo flooring and granite countertops
Extensive use of natural light
Open floor plan in L, T, H or U shape to embrace outdoor space
Flexible layout to adapt to changes in family needs
Green heating, air-conditioning and plumbing systems to conserve energy
Solar energy systems
Since Contemporary style homes are inspired by a more efficient
"green" design, they are composed of relatively renewable materials.
