This week we have a great rage of modern properties to suit all budgets. Each home is architecturally unique and shows real character. We'd buy them all if we could!

Bold Modern Home in Sycamore, IL - 3,270 sqft. ($319,900)

A real eye-catcher here in the form of very large and light-filled house. Entering between two blank faced volumes (the garage and rear of the house) the architect has set up a wonderful reveal moment as you step into the open plan living area. Love the banks of doors opening out onto the balcony. Beautif...

In art, design and architecture, scale and proportion are incredibly important. You're probably already familiar with some of these concepts, such as the Fibonacci Sequence or the Golden Ratio. Architect Le Corbusier embraced this philosophy with his use of the so-called Modulor Man, a fictional man standing at exactly six feet tall. 

Where did six feet come from? Well..the Modulor Man isn't exactly six feet tall, after all. Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, also known as Le Corbusier, was a French designer and architect. So...
