Modern Australian House Designs
Modern Australian housing doesn’t need to strictly adhere to any specific design. So, feel free to take from many different styles of architecture to design your home.
The most important step to designing your new home is calculating your borrowing capacity. This lets us understand what your factual options are. It also allows us to find the perfect house and land package for you.
The best way to discover your borrowing capacity is to fill in our pre-qualification form. From there our New Home Consultants will work with you to find the best new home options for your budget.
Of course, even without knowing your borrowing capacity, there’s no harm in looking at some stunning modern house design! So here are some popular modern designs around Australia at the moment.
Also known as the Modern Barnhouse, Scandinavian Barn is inspired by Nordic simplicity. The exterior colour palette is primarily made up of dark hues such as dark blue or black, which is contrasted by sandy coloured bricks or shades of cream with large glass windows.
If you want to go for the complete design and your borrowing capacity allows it, you should have a steeply pitched roof that overhangs from the building.
Modern Australian Minimalist
Minimalist architecture is defined by simplicity through design. The exterior demonstrates restraint, using simple cladding and wall finishes. Any colour or texture can be used, so long as the colour palette is a single colour tone with large windows.
The overall design lacks some of the aspects seen in other modern designs because Minimalist buildings are typically asymmetrical blocks without any overhanging features.
A Modern Coastal design mirrors the natural beauty of the beach. It presents a bright and breezy feeling of a tranquil seaside holiday. The colour palette is primarily white because it reflects the most natural light, while accented by light natural textures, such as stone or timber.
Australian Mid-Century Modern is an updated version of an architectural style that first came into style in the 1940s. The design is primarily characterised by a flat or sloped roof that extends the entirety of the house. By using contrasting textures and colours, the design of the house really stands out in a pop art style.
