Gray concrete blocks? Think again. These contemporary designs offer up sophisticated facades with warmth and interest.

Light-Filled Spaces

Fun meets function in this cool contemporary home. An open layout provides excellent sightlines throughout the living areas, including the open kitchen with a cooktop island that seats four. The master suite sits conveniently nearby (yet out of sight) on this level, with an attached office that would make a great nursery. Other features of the suite include a large shower, double sinks and walk-in closets, and even a private fireplace. Three more bedrooms (one with a private bath and another with access to a large sundeck) upstairs enjoy access to the game room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
