What is a modern house?
A modern house is a unique architectural gem. Its original style sets it apart and promises a new vision of future living. Fans of exceptional modern architecture will find plenty to like in these contemporary house designs. They transcend the conventional limitations of house construction and find spectacular solutions to multiple challenges.
A modern home borrows elements from various house styles and shakes them up or interprets them in a new way. This is what distinguishes it from a prefabricated house. You might choose to integrate elements of a Bauhaus design in your project, or the features of a chalet. Use your imagination and build your unique home.
As well as having a contemporary design, a Baufritz modern home:
- overcomes specific structural challenges
- blends into its surroundings
- has functional (living) areas
- incorporates innovative power technology
- guarantees a healthy living environment

Can I use renewable energy sources in my modern home?
Baufritz houses have a very special appeal with outstanding architecture and innovative energy concepts that can help to reduce your energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The principle of energy optimisation is taken into account from the start in the planning process and tailored to your needs, plot and budget.
For example, you can build your modern home as a passive house or a solar house. But there are plenty of other ways to save a significant amount of energy. We will advise you about the options for your architect-designed house, always with a view to sustainability and economic efficiency.
A flat roof for greater living comfort
Many builder-owners who are planning a modern home choose a flat roof. This popular roof option is also ideal for a bungalow or the car-port of a New England-style house. It can double up as a roof terrace for relaxing on or be used to generate solar energy.
There are many different roof types to choose from. Whether you opt for a flat roof, a solid timber roof, a pent roof, a hipped roof or another style altogether, we will implement your ideas and turn your dream of a superior quality, self-designed home into reality.
