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.
Those who lounge on the patio are quite literally surrounded by water — below, above and in the distance. It’s the perfect environment for water lovers as the relaxing vibe permeates the entire outdoor space. The modern design is definitely softened by the inclusion of the water in the novel pool design.
A misconception that critics often have of modern architecture is that it’s cool and cold. However, the opposite could be argued. A large number of modern designs feature elements that are naturally warm and inviting, such as wood and stone.
To keep it simple, modern architecture focuses more on industrial metals such as steel, concrete and glass (innovative industrial developments of the time). While contemporary design may use these same elements, its designs are considered new, re-thought, or forward-thinking. Clear as mud? With all that being said, the two designs will always mix and mingle with one another—even in the images in this article.
