These two words evoke some serious design styles in condos and lofts. We're not talking about vintage here but up to date, streamlined and current. Relevant to today's design and style. Architecture that defines an era. In the 1960s and 1970s modern certainly met something different than it does today. In today's style, we call those designs "retro". If you're looking for a modern, contemporary and up-to-date condominium there are several different options throughout Seattle. Today's modern style is streamlined, clean, minimalistic and usually have either black or white tones.
Luma, one of Seattle's newest condominiums, is probably the epitome of modern style. One of the newest buildings in the Pioneer district is the new Gridiron building, currently under construction. These are designed to be contemporary built upon one of Seattle's historic masonry buildings with high-end finishes in the heart of Pioneer Square.
Contemporary or modern condominiums don't necessarily have to be new. Modern can mean the level of technology used in a particular unit, the architecture, design or finishes. You probably won't find a lot of deep hardwoods, sick crown moldings or finials. Modern has slick, clean lines, very few ornate decorations, contemporary materials and industrial style finishes such as concrete, stainless steel, courts and granite.
Many lofts in Seattle feature this type of architecture including large, open floor plans, white washed or dark stained hardwood floors, large windows and industrial features such as exposed pipe and concrete walls. Currently under construction is one of the newest townhomes built by Domus Homes located on Martin Luther King Jr Way in downtown Seattle. These new townhomes will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, streamlined bathrooms with elegant finishes, green standards including bamboo floors, low VOC paint and cement planked architecture. Most people looking for a modern or contemporary style home are also looking for its energy efficiency. Green built and LEED homes are often popular among homebuyers looking for a modern design.
