Mid-Century Modern Architecture Meets Post and Beam

Many modern post and beam style homes found today strongly resemble the mid-century modern designs first seen in California in the 60s and 70s.

Famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, was the father of mid-century modern architecture.  The design style he made famous links indoor and outdoor spaces by extending the living space into the backyard.  Rooms had multiple outdoor views, or multiple access points, encouraging an appreciation of healthy living.

Today’s contemporary timber frame, post and beam homes incorporate many mid-century modern design elements.  Large windows, open spaces and wood beam supports offer an updated version of Wright’s clean, beautiful style.

Both classic and contemporary post and beam home designs use elements found in mid-century modern design including open vaulted ceilings, accent walls, open living spaces, floor to ceiling windows and large sliding doors. Beautiful wood beams create a rustic, yet modern feel. The style offers an elegant simplicity, with a warm inviting interior space that makes for easy living.
