Florida Modern Home designed and built by Orlando Custom Home Builder Jorge Ulibarri www.imyourbuilder.com

This Florida Modern Home by Orlando Custom Home Builder Jorge Ulibarri is a regional interpretation of popular modernist styles but with warmth and texture that counterbalance rectilinear lines and sleek elements. Unlike typical modernist styles with flat roof lines, Jorge created his version of Florida Modern architecture with subtle roof pitches that appear flat from the facade yet promote better drainage.

“Florida’s humid climate sees a lot of rainfall and frequent hurricanes, so we considered those climate factors in our design of this 5,000-square-foot home. Flat roof lines in Florida tend to create structural problems because of rainwater water pooling on the surface,” explains Jorge.

Large windows and sliding glass walls fill the home with natural sunlight enhancing its modern style. “There is a delicate balance we strike in the design of large windows without too much glass that will overheat the home and negatively impact its energy efficiency,” says Jorge.

An inverted L entry tower clad in split-face white travertine anchors the rectilinear planes. “We didn’t want a very plain, very cold house so we added a lot of textures with wood, stone, glass and steel.”

A Sneak Peek at a Mod-Mediterranean Home Under Construction

By | Custom Home Construction, Custom Home Design, Kitchen Design, Mod-Mediterranean Design | No Comments

Transitional style is the buzzword in today’s home design and decor. It’s a fusion of traditional and contemporary design but in Florida, we’ve got our own take on this trend: It’s called Mod-Mediterranean. Orlando Custom Home Builder Jorge Ulibarri says a lot of clients are asking for the Mod-Mediterranean look in new homes because it’s timeless yet reflects some of today’s trends. The key to successfully creating this New twist on Old World design is striking a balance between the sleek, shiny, edgy, urban and the rustic, timeworn, traditional.  Jorge says to create the look, first define style of the large surfaces and elements in the home such as floors, ceilings and solid surfaces. “Do you want them to be rustic or modern? Once you’ve established the style of the base decor of your home, go in the opposite direction with details and accents,” explains Jorge.

For example, if your floors are rustic, perhaps made of chiseled-edge travertine, add in modern details such as stainless steel, metallics, quartz and glass to bring in a contemporary edge. Let the defined style of your base decor and accents be your guide as you pull together the Mod-Mediterranean look in architecture and decor.  Here are few ideas from a Mod-Mediterranean home Jorge has under construction with 4,900 square feet of living space that dances between both worlds: Modern and Old.

Mod-Mediterranean Ceiling Designs:

This barrel ceiling features travertine square tiles as the primary material with glass tiles in brown and beige forming the decorative edge for a seamless blend of rustic and contemporary materials.

This ceiling uses rustic materials in a contemporary design. Notice how the painted wood planks form a decorative grid recessed in the ceiling and anchored by a contemporary light fixture.

Mod-Mediterranean Kitchen Design:

In this home, the canvas or large surface areas are rustic and the accents are contemporary. This kitchen blends both styles by balancing out traditional materials with sleek accents. Notice the wood beams in the ceiling and the rustic stone on the curved pantry wall that frames a sleek flat-paneled wood door. The glass mosaic backsplash, metal-framed, frosted-glass panel cabinets, stainless steel sculptural range hood and industrial light fixture give the kitchen a modern edge. White quartz on the kitchen countertops keep the aesthetic clean and sleek.

A split height kitchen island breaks with traditional style. Notice how the white quartz countertops have a clean, simple edge, nothing embellished. The kitchen’s white, flat-paneled base cabinets contrast with the island’s darker wood base melding modern-style cabinetry with rustic chiseled-edge travertine flooring.

A Mod-Mediterranean Fireplace:

Creating focal points that blend traditional and contemporary materials will pull together the Mod-Mediterranean style. This 24-foot fireplace mixes contemporary glass tiles with wood panels and rustic stone. The stainless steel hearth injects modern metallic into the design for a fireplace that is timeless yet current.

Mod-Mediterranean Floor Design:

The home’s rustic canvas relies on chiseled-edge travertine stone as the base but shiny glass mosaic floor medallions throughout the living space create visual surprises and opportunities to inject more modern design accents.

Mod-Mediterranean Pool:

This seamless blend of Old World and modern continues outside as well. The home’s outdoor living space features a glass tile spa and pool with travertine pavers.
