Typically built in the era between 1945 through to the 80s, classic midcentury modern homes are characterized by open floor plans and large glass windows. The idea behind the architectural style of the time was to create a feeling of simplicity with a seamless integration of design and aesthetics both throughout the home’s interior as well as to the outdoor living areas.
Other key features of midcentury modern homes include flat roofs, sliding-glass doors, expansive windows, slight changes in elevations throughout the home, and an appreciation for looking “out.”
