What is Contemporary Architecture?  On this one we start with the word Contemporary which basically means 'current'.   This can often refer to architecture that was conceived using principles of the 'post modern' era.

The following link demonstrates the difference between post-modern (contemporary) and mid-century modern architecture most appropriately: Houzz.com

Although modern design is often associated with that which looks futuristic and advanced, the irony is that 'modern' architecture was most prominent in the 20's to 50's in North America. Contemporary Architecture gained it's popularity largely in the 60's and 70's and later.

For our purposes, we are inspired by many influences, but, making the home fit today's lifestyles is what makes it contemporary.

What is Modern Architecture?  This is a very difficult question to concisely define in under 5,000 words. For this reason, we have compiled a series of links that should satisfy most cravings for clarity.  This style often refers to design concepts conceived in the 1880 to the 1950's, and are reminiscent of the progressive European movements including Bauhaus or Americanized most notably by Frank Lloyd Wright.

At Bauhaus Homes, we see modern as 'style simplified' - lacking ornamentation - putting function far ahead of form, often with multiple purposes, but, in a manner that is rarely used and outstanding in it's simplicity.
