Above all, we must distinguish the contemporary house from the modern house. The latter is resolutely avant-garde, which reserves it for fans of sleek design. The contemporary house combines the codes of a certain modernity with more traditional ingredients. It is therefore characterized by a subtle balance between innovation and tradition.
The projects will be differentiated by the construction techniques used and by the aesthetic options favored by the designers.
Contemporary house: open spaces
A contemporary home will give pride of place to wide open spaces, from the kitchen with a central island to the vast dressing room, passing through a living room often combining the living room and the dining room. Some will choose minimalism, others will play it more rustic, depending on the desired atmosphere.
This type of construction is always airy, well ventilated. It is energy efficient. It can even meet the zero energy label. Such a house is also very bright, thanks to the presence of large bay windows.
Materials & techniques
In terms of materials, a contemporary house can combine innovative techniques with more traditional components. We can see a smooth concrete floor crossing in the dining room and rustic brick facing outside, an old staircase in salvaged oak and state-of-the-art LED lights. The mix of genres will give each project a unique style, a real personality.
The furniture and decoration could be both vintage pieces and design elements. It’s up to everyone to follow their intuition to design the interior of their dreams!
