Dormers are commonly found on traditional buildings, but not so much in today's contemporary designs. Why? We think the biggest reason is that gable roofs are often passed up in favor of flat ones in contemporary architecture, and dormers sort of rely on the sloped roof. But as with anything, there are exceptions. Here are some dormers on contemporary works of architecture:
We love dormers for their sense of intimacy and the way they accent a roofline. We'd hate to see them fall by the wayside in contemporary design, so it's encouraging to see these wonderful examples of dormers in use today.
Have you spotted a contemporary dormer before? Did you like it as much as what you'd find on a traditional home?
