Why Mid-Century Modern Homes Have Made a Resurgence

Since 2016, the team of home designers at Enso Homes have been committed to creating a bespoke luxury home for Geelong residents. We give each client the attention they deserve, by taking on selective projects and providing a superior level of workmanship. This is a homage to the artisanal master builders of yesteryear. In this blog, we discuss our great passion for building mid-century modern homes and why this design is making its long-awaited comeback. 


What is Mid-Century Modern?

Mid-century modern architecture blossomed in the United States between 1945 and 1964. The style broke away from classical architecture by using aluminium, steel, and concrete, in homes which were often a single level with a low butterfly roof and spacious, open floor plans. Ample natural light through glass facades and spacious patios were also a common feature. At Enso Homes, we specialise in building mid-century modern homes that stay true to this original style.

What Makes Mid-Century Modern Homes Special?

Here are some of the reasons mid-century modern homes are making a resurgence.  


Open Layout

The open floor plan of mid-century modern homes makes them ideal for families. The open living space creates a feeling of connectedness, with kitchen, dining and living areas unobstructed by walls. The space in the home feels less cluttered and allows for interesting furniture layouts. 


Natural Light

Mid-century modern homes are designed to make the most of natural light. The wide, open interior is ideal for modern homeowners who favour big, bright living spaces with large windows and translucent features that celebrate sunlight. 


Sleek, Angular Design

Sharp, angular lines are an important aspect of this design style. The open space is best highlighted by geometric shapes, which ensure that the space never feels cluttered and creates a feeling of harmony and cohesion. 



Since most mid-century modern homes are built on a single level. Spatial variation is often created by incorporating a split level design that allows for subtle distinctions between kitchen, living and dining spaces.
