Contemporary Home Plans

Architecture is constantly changing. What's popular in one generation fades in favor of a new design element with the next generation. At Donald A. Gardner Architects, we have a number of modern home floor plans that capture the current trends in architecture. If you're looking to build something that is trendy and fresh, consider one of these contemporary home designs.

Contemporary House Plans Perfectly Combine Style With Modern Elements

To each person, the description "contemporary home" conjures up something different. Here, it means a home floor plan that seamlessly blends modern efficiency with timeless style, grace and a quality home -- all at an affordable price. In each of these contemporary home plans, you will find modern design elements that will make your home a joy to live in. These homes have the features and designs that are made for the modern lifestyle. One of our newest contemporary home designs is The Clearlake. With its low-slung gables and unique clerestory, this design has a modern exterior that is distinctively appealing. Double doors open into the living space where the great room, dining room and kitchen blend together. Retreating glass doors present rear views and expand living outdoors seamlessly. This home plan's kitchen layout promotes easy workflow and casual entertaining, and the nearby mud and utility rooms are tucked away near the garage. The master suite is fully appointed and situated across the home plan from two secondary bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
