Geometry is the backbone of this detached house’s design. Strong materials like lumber and brick make for a majestic structure, but the lines and rectangles come together to create a refined masterpiece.

Imagine coming home to such a stylish contemporary home everyday. The rectangular layout of the house is minimalist, but far from boring.

Strong, mysterious and timeless. The use of dusky colors in the exterior of the featured house adds to its appeal as the shades of gray and black highlight the hard lines of the modern design. Even the windows are tinted and the monochrome scheme is a stark contrast to well-placed natural elements such as the wooden accents in the garage and the green lawn.
Much of the first floor is taken up by an open floor plan that consists of a 21 square meter living area that flows into a kitchen and dining area. On the other side of the house is the bathroom and storage as well as a double garage that’s approximately 40.9 square meters.

Common areas are on the first floor, although a bedroom and bathroom are also located here. A stunning circular staircase is truly the most eye-catching feature of the interiors in this modern household.
