A-10 : First Modern Home
This is my first modern house plan I am attempting to design. Modern homes now tend to be simple square shape. Some other characteristics are cantilevering parts of the house, and lots of windows which sometimes go to the edge of the building. The materials used in modern homes today are corrigated steel, wood, and concrete (Among other). This house I am designing has all of these materials on the outside and inside of the house.
I started with a big monolithic concrete Z-shape. You can see this on the elevation. I also added a lot of long windows. They are long but also located high up on the interior walls. This helps for privacy in the home. The other two materials that make up the outside are wood and corrugated steel. The thin hatched lines are the corrugated steel and the thicker hatched lines are the wood. The wood is located only on the first floor of this elevation.
I don’t normally start my design of a house with an elevation, but I wanted to see how it would look. I also have a very good idea of what the inside of the house will look like when I am done the plans. This means that the elevation wont change very much, or at all.
