25 Hot Contemporary Abodes

From Transparent Homes to Cubic Summer Cabins

— September 14, 2010 — Art & Design
With an uncommon take on trendy architecture, these featured homes were industrially-inspired and created with style. Ranging from minimalist ideas to art deco productions, all the way down to geometric see-through homes, these contemporary abodes are sure to make you yearn to revamp your living space.

These residences are simplistic in design, but complex in nature, making them all the more intriguing to its viewers.

Implications - Consumers with an opposition to the typical suburban home jump to the opposite extreme and commission artists and architects to create masterpiece abodes that are one-of-a-kind and reflect their personal style. This desire for individuality is reflective of a common societal settling into middle-class comfort that has occured with the continuous development of urban sprawl.
