With their creative light-filled, open floor plans and emphasis on indoor/outdoor living, Kasper Modern Homes builds mid-century modern style homes. Why Mid Century Modern? You ask? Because of a new fan base in the 21st century. Homebuyers are eagerly snapping up and renovating the original homes, while architects and builders look for ways to incorporate elements of mid-century modern into new homes.
Light Filled with Creative Windows
“The layout of mid-century modern homes resonates with the younger generation, with the kitchen, dining, and living spaces all being contiguous,” says architect Hunter Fleetwood, founding principal of Fleetwood/Fernandez in Santa Monica, Calif. “And indoor/outdoor living is something that mid-century modern architects in Southern California really tried to build into their designs.”
What was the driving force behind the creation of the Mid Century Modern Designed home? “These homes were introduced as we were coming out of a period where more is more,” says Phil Kean, president of Phil Kean Designs, Winter Park, Fla. “Mid-century modern isn’t about extravagance; it celebrates the beauty of simple things like concrete block.”
We Decide To Buy a Kasper Modern
Aaron Hunt of Avalon Group Realtors St. Petersburg decides to buy a Kasper Modern Home. He says “When I walked into the expansive master bath with a 7 by 11 foot double shower with a huge upper wall window, I knew I had to buy this home.” Aaron and I had been looking to buy a modern condo in downtown St. Petersburg FL. But one day, while showing clients from Washington, DC several new build homes by Kasper Modern, our minds changed.
Once our clients decided on the Kasper Modern Home they wanted to buy, we also put an offer on the home with the huge shower. We have been in our home for 7 months and we love it. All the creative use of windows, and the amazing kitchen and bath are perfect for our lifestyle of living. Also, I have a weekly spa time in the huge spa-like bathroom.
Buy A Happy Home
To buy a new “midcentury modern” home, then, is to buy a vision of oneself in such composed yet carefree happiness. For instance, what one can’t achieve in full glass walls, one can approximate with minimalist decor and large, open entertaining spaces. In addition, this is what the new “midcentury modern” developers are building and selling. Therefore, not necessarily replicas, but homes focused around large, airy entertainment space, with clean angles and unadorned edges in place of what in recent decades were curvy, decorated facades.
The New Mid Century Modern
First, the new “midcentury modern” housing recreates the sparkling, effortless cocktail vibe associated with the 1950s period. Second, it is about creating a home that is sleek and minimalist. Third, Mid Century Modern is sparsely decorated. Fourth, the clean lines work hard to make the viewer imagine that the more ornate ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s never happened. While Kasper Modern deploys abundant glass panes to achieve Palm Springs’ requisite “indoor/outdoor” feeling, the use of glass remains limited to areas like patio sliders and windows, rather than entire lengths of the home.
Mid-century moderns are easy to live in because they reflect how we live today. Additionally, in St. Petersburg FL specifically, they pair well with the culture of companies like HSN, Hype., BigSea, Aurora Surgical, Gooee, and Valpak. St. Petersburg’s economy is highly design focused. But truly, design is more of a focus in America than it has been in a long time. Consider that we have IKEA furniture, which is affordable high-design. And if Apple was a house, it would be mid-century modern.
