The Journey From Midcentury Modern to Twenty-first Century Contemporary
All art forms are influenced by current social and political forces and what came before. Perhaps nowhere is this more obvious than in the evolution of residential architecture from the post-World War II Midcentury Modern trend, to today’s contemporary home designs.
After the war there was pent-up demand for housing and a cadre of talented young architects—particularly in Southern California—waiting for the opportunity. What became known as Midcentury Modern architecture was heavily influenced by the Bauhaus movement of the 1920’s and the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies Van Der Rohe and Le Cobusier. Defined by open floor plans, clean lines, generous use of glass, a blending of inside and outside living spaces, and the use of new materials, the Midcentury Modern aesthetic set the tone for today’s contemporary homes.
Stillwater Dwellings embraces this heritage and brings contemporary prefab residential design to a new level of sophistication and practical livability.
Stillwater Dwellings Online Design Seminar takes the mystery out of building a custom home. Matthew Stannard, Stillwater’s founder, will introduce his design philosophy and the process used to assure plans meet each each clients personal preferences. Kaveh Khatabloo, Chief Sales Officer, will detail Stillwater’s three phase planning and production process.
The formal presentations will be followed by time for questions and answers.
