Timber Block's Home of the Month is one of our original models from our Contemporary Collection. While it may be one of our first contemporary designs, it's still just as sought after today as the day it was released to the public.
Before we get into what makes this gorgeous model a great choice for home of the month, let's talk about the style in general.
What is a Contemporary-Style home?
This style of home is a perfect blend of history and today's lifestyle. Simply put, a contemporary home is just as warm and inviting as any other home, but with features that modernize the design. For example, you'll notice almost all contemporary homes will bring the "outside in". You'll see plenty of outdoor living space with several large windows allowing plenty of natural light, in addition to French or sliding doors for easy outside access.
Contemporary designs will almost always feature the following:
- Strong shapes
- Irregular facade
- 2 stories
- plenty of large, windows
- will focus on entertaining - again - especially outdoors.
- are very popular with lovers of Timber Block, as green technology, the focus on the environment and sustainable living are very common with the contemporary architecture.
The Milano was the very first Timber Block home shown with mixed materials on the exterior - something that's very common with today's contemporary design. This home has 3 bedrooms - all with their own bathrooms, a separate office, an outstanding open floor plan with a loft that is completely open, resulting in a great view from almost every corner of the house.
