Modern is a general term that can describe many different house styles. When we talk about modern style homes, we are saying that the design is not based primarily on history or traditions. Below we present you some ultra modern homes that perhaps will inspire your to build your own home design.

Is this the world’s most futuristic house design? Dupli Casa, designed by J. Mayer H. Architects, is a three-floor vila in Ludwigsburg, Germany with views of David Chipperfield’s Museum of MOdern Literature. Built in 2008, the angular design was based on the footprint of a pre-existing house that was completed in 1984.
Rising above the more standard and traditional-styled houses on Australia’s Bondi Beach is the wave-shaped Starr Residence, an almost commercial-looking structure designed by Brian Meyerson Architects. The architects say, “the design of this house at Bondi Beach centers on maximizing space within strict height and bulk controls while taking advantage of available views, light and breezes. Arising from these controls, architectural imagery is developed referring to the cultural history of Bondi and to the sand and sea. A sweeping copper roof evokes various images ranging from surf boat hulls to breaching humpback whales. Stone, plywood and intricately formed concrete give spaces character. These materials are complemented by compelling opposites, such as soft sheer curtains with alternating with planes of solidity and transparency. The house attempts to lyrically connect to its beach-side site.”
Looking something like a yacht that’s become embedded in the streets of Sydney, Australia, the Moebius House is far from typical. Architects Tony Owen Partners say that the design is an example of ‘liquid architecture’, “whereby projects are designed parametrically using 3-D digital software to respond to environmental issues.” The house features a distinctive roof shape, with one solid white wall extending over the house and then curving under the second floor to create a terrace.
An ultramodern, gleaming house like this is not exactly a sight you’d expect to see in Inner Mongolia, but the (X)House is actually part of the Ordos 100 Project showing off innovative residential designs. The exterior walls are made of black brick, which takes on an interesting patterned look thanks to the elliptical shape of the home. The design, by New York-based architects Multiplicities, takes its name from an X-shape in the interior of the house, which isn’t visible from outside.
Like the world’s most elaborate tent, the Bird Island House for Sentul Park, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is covered in a silicone-coated glass fabric which changes transparency throughout the structure to let varying levels of light and views inside. The fabric twists and wraps around the bamboo frame, leaving common areas and passageways open to the breeze while other rooms are enclosed with full walls and glass.
Half conical concrete, half traditionally shaped thatched roof, this house is definitely an interesting transition from the structures that normally dot the countryside in this little Dutch village. The concrete half shields the home from harsh direct sunlight while the back features glass portions that let in light.
Packed with electronic controls and highly efficient gadgets, modern style homes likely will rapidly grow into strange and abstracted structures in the future. These futuristic house designs from around the world may be indicative of what’s to come, or maybe in a few decades they’ll seem quaintly retro-futuristic, like spaceship houses from the 1950s.
