For 16 years Dwell has been the defiintive source of modern home design. Modern houses lend an authenticity to our experience as, at their best, they respond to the context of our time and their place. Many modern houses also lend themselves to being green houses. By exploring people's own ideas of how they want to live modern houses are less about keeping up with other people and more about living up to your own values and ideas. We believe that architects and interior designers lend invaluable craft, vision, and expertise toward this pursuit.
