Mid-century modern homes is a collection of beautifully built homes in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. The distinct house exteriors and interior design influenced residential architecture in many ways and inspired a trend in the construction of modern homes with an open plan, exposed ceiling beams, and huge windows. Mid-century modern homes feature unique window and roof design which emphasize the eco-friendly lifestyle connected to the surroundings and centered around families and local communities.

A-frames, flat and butterfly roof design stated that form became a function. Modestly decorated, mid century modern homes celebrate the elegant simplicity of geometry and unpretentious, functional and family-friendly design. Natural building materials, like wood and stone, concrete and glass, together with flat roof design allow these homes boundlessly blend with the surroundings. Visible structural systems, roofline windows, and distinct roof design work beautifully with lots of windows inviting nature and merging home interiors with outdoors.

The roof design keeps the proportions of the home to a natural scale and creates a pleasant, comfortable, and modern setting. Also, the simple roof design allows bringing lots of natural light into home interiors while providing inviting and functional shaded yard areas.
