New Twists On Modern Home Design
Think of modern home styles today and your mind usually goes to some contemporary-chic ranch style home or bungalow. Probably the last thing you'd think of is a metal structure like a shipping container or water tower. However, some of these unusual structures are being used by the creative and turned into some of the most modern home designs today. Here are a few of the most eye-catching examples.
Shipping Containers - Though this may sound odd, shipping containers are a great size for a residence. Take a downtown Detroit home made of seven of these containers fashioned into a sleek house with frosted glass doors and all the high-end amenities of a modern home.
Water Towers - Take the famous Seal Beach water tower on PCH as an example. This fabulous cylindrical, dome-shaped structure houses gorgeous hardwood floors complete with a lounge and bar area with 360 views of Orange County from the ocean inland. Not only is it one of the neatest, modern residences in OC, but it operates as a fabulous weekly vacation rental for parts of the year.
Silos - In Utah, architects linked two corrugated metal silos with multiple bedrooms tucked into the walls dubbed "bed in a box." A second story deck provides great views of the Provo River.
Churches - Maintaining the exterior structure, Gothic windows and stonework, an 1880s chapel was gutted and reimagined into a modern black and white cottage now for rent.
Military Buildings - A radar station in Germany was repurposed into a five bedroom house with floor to ceiling windows, oak floors, and a rooftop patio with panoramic views.
