Small Modern Home Plan

No. 21

THE HOME THAT HAS ITS CAKE AND EATS IT, TOO. We’re not just talking about the kitchen (although it’s more than ample). This small home design has everything you could want, none of what you don’t, and no compromises. This is a home that’s both fancy, and fancy free, combining luxury and the freedom to enjoy a social lifestyle. Key features: a luxe bedroom with full-size ensuite, and a striking terrace with sliding glass doors that open right up – and open up the possibilities for entertaining. How does it feel so big? Clever use of space means the terrace feels like part of the interior.

A place for everything. And everything in its place.

By integrating full width sliding glass doors, the house feels integrated and connected. As a result, the interior is awash with daylight. The design philosophy is simple: promote equality in spaces to reduce the hierarchy. In a home this size, everything is equally important, and that’s why our architects have given everything its place. You’ll find that My Modern Home has prioritized features usually found in a much larger home – luxury amenities such as generous entrances, a fully-kitted ensuite, and a mud room.

This small home makes a grand entrance.

The dramatic entry pavilion structures the house plan into three parts: common living areas, discreet back-of house (mud room and powder room), and a private second floor with bedrooms.

The bedrooms are located on the second floor, with the option for a beautiful bright home office – perfect for those increasingly working from home. The master bedroom is generous enough to contain a sitting area beneath the large floor-to-ceiling window. The generous five-piece ensuite is open to the master bedroom (a sliding door can be specified if desired) creating a room of generous proportions and luxurious amenity. This floor plan configuration keeps the private functions out of sight while the striking tapware and stunning surfaces are viewed from the bedroom.

With a shared washroom, the flex room at the front of the house can be used as an office, spare bedroom, fitness area, or music room – A modern house design that has the flexibility to change as life does. The pass-through laundry makes efficient use of floor space and operates like a full-size one by borrowing space and the sink from the adjacent bathroom. These seemingly simple details add up to create a small modern home that has the feeling of a much larger space.


Just because your home’s plan may be preconceived, doesn’t mean its features are presupposed.

Think of My Modern Home as your architect on demand.

Love Plan No. 21 but would like it better if it were bigger? - Easy.
A third floor can also be added to this home as a customization. If you’d prefer an enclosed master ensuite, or any other change, we can make it happen.

Our architects are on call to fine-tune the design to suit your unique needs.


"This design makes a grand statement on corner infill lots. By biasing the design along the length of the property they’ve created a practical and private terrace making the ground floor feel more spacious."

Andrew S.

“In part due to the Entry Pavilion and adjacent Terrace, I really enjoy the presence this home has on the street. I find it to be far more stately than the size might suggest and suspect the interplay between interior and exterior spaces will result in it feeling much larger as well. Each space is generous without being excessive while the general openness of the plan affords flexibility when needed.”
