Montage: 17 (Mostly) Modern Homes With Sash Windows

While I certainly appreciate stately Colonials, restored Victorians, and charming Cape cottages (especially driving through New England), as well as quirky bungalows and limestone maisonettes, most of the architecture I’m drawn to is modern and contemporary architecture.

So when I got an email from a window hardware company asking to talk about sash windows and sash window hardware (they have some useful calculators), I realized that almost all the images on my Architecture I and Architecture II Pinterest boards are strongly contemporary and thus there is a real absence of homes with sash windows. Instead, there are vast, uninterrupted expanses of glass, or glazing as they say in the business.

Upon further probing, thinking there surely must be modern homes with sash windows in there somewhere, I discovered that the ones with sash windows were primarily examples of modern barn architecture. I already posted 20 Modern Barn Homes last month. So after plucking the few modern homes with sash windows I could find, I set out deeper into Pinterest and came up with these finds.

I definitely found a variety of architectural examples of houses with sash windows that I liked. Many of them however, in addition to being modern barn homes, are traditional houses that have been graced with a contemporary addition, or renovated with a contemporary bent. (That may well be a whole separate future post.) In the meantime. here are 18 mostly modern homes with sash windows.

Montage: 38 Modern Houses with Black Exteriors

All black ensembles aren’t the only ultra dark looks I’m obsessed with these days. I’ve also been noticing tons of contemporary residences with exteriors clad in, painted, and in some cases weathered (I think) to the darkest black. I’m especially attracted to the homes with strikingly simple silhouettes, almost rustic, but made modern by their overall blackness. Here’s a collection of 38 such architectural examples. Do you have any favorites here? Would you want to live in one? I think I remember reading in Architectural Digest that Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan’s Hamptons house is painted black, and the neighbors complained.
