Linear architecture serves as the common thread in our exploration of two exceptional modern home designs. The first is a striking two-story structure in concrete, wood, and glass with a daring cantilevered volume. The second linear home design is a charming modern rustic abode with a single-story stone exterior. Outdoor swimming pools and spacious terraces create a balance of relaxation and entertainment at these luxury residences. Open-plan living spaces carry a tasteful blend of modern gray and natural wood decor, creating a warm and inviting ambiance. Come and explore these two homes, where linear architecture seamlessly melds form and function, encapsulating the essence of contemporary design.

Our first modern home exterior appears intriguing behind a mysterious shroud of wooden shutters on the second story and a solid concrete facade at ground level. The brutalist concrete aesthetic is softened by a covering of flowering climbing plants, which add a little romance to the modern setting.
As we move to the side of the lower volume, the foreboding concrete block opens up with a huge expanse of floor-to-ceiling glass, revealing the main living space.
The second story of the home sits perpendicular to its base, overlapping the ground floor containment as a cantilevered mass.
The overhanging second-story extends over a pool terrace, casting a cool shadow.
The main living space is sandwiched between edge-to-edge glass. Enormous doors slide open to adjoin the living room with the sun terrace, creating an easy flow of indoor-outdoor living.
Outdoor furniture is arranged around the expansive sun deck to create pockets of comfort for relaxation and entertaining.
Sun loungers are situated down by the swimming pool for catching a tan.
A lawned area makes the modern terrace feel soft and inviting.
A winding pathway snakes up to the house. The living room also opens to the front of the private property, giving the living space wonderful cross ventilation.
Exterior spotlights are installed under the cantilevered overhang, which keeps the outdoor living spaces well-illuminated after nightfall.
Inside the luxury living room, modern gray sofas are arranged in a sociable U-shaped configuration around the TV. A cozy area rug is unfurled beneath a set of nesting coffee tables.
A wood-clad TV wall makes a warm statement in the large open layout.
The linear floor plan moves from the TV lounge into a conversational sitting area, then into an open-plan formal dining room and ultimately the kitchen.
A custom-made media console unit expands the full width of the wide room. Its wooden design melds warmly with the wood-clad TV wall.
The rectangle swimming pool echoes the linearity of the building.
Flagstones build a patio for a cozy circle of garden rocking chairs.
The cool blue infinity pool skims the horizon.
A paved driveway gives access to the home.
The second story of the home contains private sleeping quarters. The long, linear volume lands momentarily on the boundary wall before touching gently onto the sloping hillside.

At the back of the property, there is a welcoming sun terrace and a swimming pool.

Retractable glass doors link the sun terrace with the spacious interior. Inside the living room, an enormous gray area rug defines a modern sitting area from a formal dining space. Modern sofas and chic lounge chairs offer ample seating for extended family and friends. A huge dining room chandelier calls attention to the wood-clad ceiling.
At the rear of the open plan, the kitchen features a long island with a breakfast bar. Upholstered bar stools seat six.
