Despite popular belief, true modern homes do not follow popular trends. In fact, the modern style that we know today is from a 20th century design movement which focusses on structural simplicity, order and functionality.

Modern spaces incorporate neutral colours, basic natural materials and clean architectural lines, with an emphasis on strong lines, a lack of ornamentation and minimal texture; it uses straightforward furniture and dramatic modern art to complement the stark architecture. Lighting is also a key structural element that accentuates planes and highlights focal points.

Modern design is often a love-it or hate-it style — many appreciate its minimalist, uncluttered feel, while others miss the warmth and variety found in other styles. Modern design is often confused with contemporary design, which is constantly changing and evolving with the times and trends.

Modern garden in London.

This project involved a complete back to brick refurbishment and 100 metre square enlargement of this Fulham terraced house. The property had not been modernised in 50 years and the practice managed the project from initial design, through planning, tender, construction and fit out. The kitchen was extended to the side and rear in order to create an enormous 45 square metre room where children could play, adults could cook and the whole family could be together. This allowed the formality of the front rooms to be preserved as ‘toy free’, with a grand entrance hall exemplified by the Georgian circular hall table, enclosed drawing room and limestone fireplaces to cater for the parents once little ones were asleep. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms were carved into the upstairs to include a decadent master bedroom with walk through wardrobes and master en-suite. Element 7 flooring, 18th century antiques and Colefax & Fowler furnishings are combined elegantly with collected art pieces and personal family mementos. Stats & Fittings: Triple Glazing, Full U/F Heating, Integrated Sonos, CAT 6 Cabling, LED Lighting, Farrow & Ball, Neptune, Element 7, Stone Age, Nina Burgess Carpets, Neptune Kitchen, Lefroy Brooks, Miele, Alternative Bathrooms, English Fireplaces of Distinction

Large modern semi-detached house in Manchester with three or more floors, wood cladding, a pitched roof and a shingle roof.

The wooden external cladding is “pre-fossilised” meaning it’s resistant to rot and UV degradation. Made by Organowood, this timber cladding is saturated with silicon compounds turning the wood into stone. Thus, the wood is protected without the use of biocides or heavy metals. http://www.organowood.co.uk Photo: Rick McCullagh
