Residential Design Inspiration: Modern Dormers

By on June 1, 2017. Posted in .

From Modern Farmhouses to Modern Barns, design inspiration for Modern Dormers seems to have come up a lot lately. We have a couple projects on the boards in which we’ve used some of the Modern Dormers images below as idea generators with our clients, and they’ve loved them!

We do have a few clients who prefer a more traditional style home, but also love some of the more modern components such as larger windows, open floor plan, continuity of space…  Taking cues for a project from both modern and traditional architecture is an exciting challenge. And I believe it makes for an even better design!

Below we’re sharing 7 beautiful homes with dormers designed in a creatively modern way. Enjoy!

I just wonder, how about the rain Collection with these roofs that have no over hang? I dont seem to see any rain Collection Drains on Pictures 1,5. Especially house on Picture 5 there is no visible Collection at the base of the roof or at the base of the wall. surely this very important to not have too much rain collecting in the soil at the base of the house? I coul imaging having the house design of house 5 but would then maybe have a rain Collection trench at the base of the walls. Dont know how I would solve the windos and doors but….
