Mid-century modern architecture is popular around the country. This clean architectural style is frequently associated with floor to ceiling windows and exposed beams. While these elements were definitely popular, the phrase “mid-century modern architecture” really encompasses several different design elements that were common in homes from 1940 to 1975.
The floor plans of these homes center around open spaces and accessibility. The homes are designed to offer extensive views of their yards or other green spaces such as nearby golf courses. Wide windows above the kitchen sink are also common in mid-century modern homes. This era also included the rise of the A-frame home. A-frame homes were popular because of their clean-cut lines, a common theme in mid-century modern architecture.
