Mid Century Modern

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Midcentury Modern Design
Though they commonly have only one level, some midcentury homes may have more than one. The overhang of the balcony and the end walls frame a linear composition here. Split-level versions exist as well. Who can forget Mike Brady's design?What's ahead for midcentury design?Despite the significant influence and importance of modern design, this type of residential architecture made up only a small portion of the market when it was new. Successful replications of the style are difficult for several reasons. In its time midcentury architecture paid no attention to energy consumption, something that can no longer be ignored. Building codes and structural design leap in sophistication with each natural disaster, and the simplicity found in original midcentury designs is extraordinarily difficult to reproduce following today's required building standards. And the sprawling nature of midcentury home design is becoming increasingly difficult to attain in highly populated regions.A similar contemporary aesthetic has developed in recent years with a great deal of influence from midcentury style. However, the forms tend to be bulky and heavy in comparison. Though a consistent dialogue has yet to be established that defines current trends in modern design, the popularity of the midcentury aesthetic remains strong.More: Why We Love Midcentury Modern Design
