Yup, this is the photo-list of top 50 modern house designs ever built. Some of those homes are seriously popular on the internet which is just another proof of how incredible they are and another reason for you to check them out. Take a look!

Of course, all of those modern house designs are chosen according to my personal taste, so you don’t have to agree about being the best part, because, as everybody else of course, you have your own taste in modern houses. But after you see those photos below, I expect you to at least admit that those homes are truly incredible pieces of modern architecture. 😉 Btw. you might want to take a look at the 30 modern entrances later as well.

Location and modern house designs

What makes these modern house designs so special and different from others? Well, one of the criteria was location of the house, which often plays important role in the way house is designed. For example, houses designed by SAOTA, are almost always built somewhere on a cliff, high above the ocean, or down on a rocky beach, giving its residents an opportunity to enjoy in breathtaking views or relaxing sounds that ocean waves make while crashing into the rocks below the house. Nature will always have huge impact on the house design.

House size

Next, size of the house. Common opinion among people is that house has to be huge or expensive to be beautiful or amazing. This is really, really far from being true. You will notice I picked some pretty small houses (in comparison to others) for this list. For example, this minimalist house and this creative home. Good architects and their clients who have taste and style will together create gorgeous modern house designs, no matter how big the house is at the end.

Architectural style

Speaking of style, this brings us to the next criteria. Style in architecture. This is another thing strongly related to someone’s personality, but you have to admit, when someone has style, this is obvious to everyone. I think architects and owners of those homes have amazing style in architecture and this is one of the reasons why I put those homes on the list.

“The wow factor” of modern house designs

When we take all criteria described above, we get one and only, “the wow factor”. When you see modern home and its design, you’re either impressed, or not impressed. This can be described as “the wow factor”, and, at the end, this is the main reason why those homes are on this list. All of them attracted my attention, got me all interested and left me impressed, which made me put together this list of top 50 modern house designs at the end.

Alright, now let’s hear what you think about those homes. Do you find them impressive as much as I do? Do you think architects deserved some kind of award? Which one of all 50 designs would you pick as the winner? Please, let me know in the comment section below, after which I recommend you to check out 30 modern pools list, even more amazing than this list. 🙂
