Look to the originality of the bold, angular roof lines that are so prominent in modern design—these are very unique. Everything from the vaulted ceilings, to the exposed structural elements, to the unusual linear elements— all equate to a unique, artistic design that you cannot help but be amazed by.
The front door includes the first in the series of outdoor patios. This one is typically southern in that it has the necessary elements of a covered porch and room for seating. It is a nod to southern hospitality as it welcomes visitors and serves as a spot where the homeowners can sit and interact with the neighborhood.
A second outdoor patio surrounds the pool. It also separates the living and dining areas of the home from the rest. Being right outside the kitchen, the patio can serve as an extension of the kitchen for grilling. Its proximity to the powder room is also handy for pool users and visitors in the rest of the yard.
While this starts to define the difference, there is an evident use of the term "contemporary" that refers to a particular strain of design today, such that new postmodern, neo-Classical or other neo-traditional buildings are not included. The term's use is clearly narrower than the literal definition, yet it is still rooted in the now; contemporary architecture is of its time, therefore innovative and forward-looking. In this sense it is rooted in the modern, even if it does not resemble it stylistically.
