Modern-style homes became popular in the 1920s in the Pacific Northwest and were built through the 1960s. Modern architecture embraced design features that departed from the ornate attributes of the earlier Victorian period. Characterized by clean lines, simple shapes, asymmetry, and minimalism, Modern-style houses were intended to blend in with surrounding nature, which was—in part—accomplished by the use of numerous large, unadorned Modern window styles that sometimes spanned from floor to ceiling. Modern front door styles featured clean lines and simple designs, often utilizing glass.
As Modern-style homes faded from popularity, Mid-Century Modern homes emerged, followed by Contemporary Modern homes, which have evolved to use newer materials such as metal roofing as well as eco-friendly materials.
