Modern Style House Plans

The modern movement started as early as the 1920's with the establishment of the Bauhaus movement in Germany. The style has evolved continuously over many years and in South Africa it is still a popular style. The distinctive elements of this style are the flat roof and plastered and white painted wall finishes, relatively large window openings in aluminium frames. The appearance is a cubistic form with varying roof heights resulting in different internal volumes. The flat roof allows the plan form to be any shape and can lead to interesting external spaces and court yards
