Key features of contemporary-modern homes
Melbourne has an abundance of homes built in a modern, contemporary style. They're paired right back to their essentials, based on logical design principles that eschew ornamentalism and tradition for minimalism and openness.
Open floor plans
Contemporary-style homes tend to prioritise large spaces with open floorplans. This helps with fostering a positive family atmosphere, and a sense of expansive space can even improve your mood.
Lots of glass
Modern-contemporary homes are sometimes jokingly referred to as 'glass boxes', in reference to their shape and abundance of windows. Light and visibility are celebrated in these designs, so there's often lots of glass. Other frequently used materials are steel and concrete.
A flat roof is simpler, easier and cheaper to install than a pitched or domed roof. For those reasons, it is especially popular in contemporary-modern home designs. It makes for a clean, simple look.
