Mike Cahill of Redfin asked experts from across the country, including architects, builders, designers and me, a realtor, to add to their thoughts and further illuminate the major considerations for homeowners to keep in mind when designing a home. Each modern home expert contributed an insight that I agreed with and that gave a meaningful direction to modern homeowners in different voices. I chose to emphasize proportions over modern ornamentation, and views in many directions versus an exaggerated window or tricky modern façade.
The other contributors emphasized Modern Architecture at Its Core; Think Big Picture; Bring the Outdoors In; Make It Uniquely You; Less Is More; Lean on Form and Function; Design In Harmony With Your Surroundings; Know What You Want; Understand Taste May Change; Focus On Fundamentals.
