Moderne Style

Art Moderne

An architectural style found principally in houses constructed in the 1930s, following the earlier Art Deco style. Common characteristics may include smooth stuccoed wall surfaces; flat roofs; architectural details that emphasize the horizontal appearance of the building; rounded exterior corners; ribbon windows that may continue around a corner; glass blocks; an asymmetrical façade. The jagged version of this style is sometimes called Zigzag Moderne. Also see International style. Compare with Art Deco and Streamline Moderne.
