Favorite Modern Houses of 2011

Categories: Architecture + Interiors

For our “Live Modern” series on the blog, we feature architecture that we think exhibits certain kinds of qualities. The modern architecture we choose to highlight is certainly modernly designed–you see a lot of straight lines, innovative materials and smart use of space—and it’s also the kind of architecture that really takes stock of its surroundings, either working to complement it or sometimes, contrast with it.

But most importantly, the architecture we choose to blog about is comfortable. It has personality. You can actually see that its owners enjoy using it. It’s modern, but it’s accessible, and that’s important to us at 2Modern! Enjoy our round-up of our most favorite homes* we posted about this year:


 Letterbox House by McBride Charles Ryan
