Modern architecture permeates many creative outlets including Minecraft, the world’s most loved sandbox game. With the right materials and structural knowledge, players can create some truly impressive modern homes that can be used in any game mode.
If Minecraft players prefer, they can use blueprints provided by certain community architects and builders to create specific builds. These blueprints describe the resources required, as well as the base size and scale, so players can better envision what they will soon be creating.
These blueprints are especially useful for newer players who haven’t quite mastered their own building skills yet. While there are a plethora of modern house blueprints to take advantage of, it doesn’t hurt to check out some excellent notable examples.

Awesome Minecraft blueprints for modern houses
1) Modern classic house
Consists mainly of smooth quartz and gray concrete blocks, this modern home is a mix of contemporary building designs and easy-to-create materials. In addition to quartz and concrete, the interior and exterior use common block types such as stone brick and wooden planks. There’s also a lot of glass in the construction to create wide windows, and this shouldn’t be too hard to find if a player can find a beach nearby.
The interior may be somewhat complicated geometrically, but it’s not as complicated as it seems. Make sure you collect enough iron and wool, as you will need it for the lanterns of this building and for the large number of paintings scattered throughout it.
2) Modern house 147
For the next option in modern home design, Minecraft players can check out this blueprint from ArchitectCraft. It uses substantial block varieties including quartz, concrete and also a lot of wood. While the house itself is beautiful and functional, the surrounding landscape is just as impressive.
The blueprint calls for lots of greenery, including potted cacti, tufts of grass, sheet block topiary and even sugar cane outside the main entrance. A modern home without the presence of natural elements may leave something to be desired, but this project certainly does not have that problem.
3) Modern building palace
If you’re looking for a modern Minecraft home with a more eccentric design, this creation from The Dengy might be just the thing. Each floor of the modern house gives an interesting elliptical shape and the windows are checkered with stained glass. To give an appropriate sense of realism, struts have been placed on either side of the building to ensure that the elliptical floors are properly supported.
The highlight of this particular project is undoubtedly the helicopter hovering over the third floor. It comes with its own associated helipad, and although it doesn’t full functionalityit’s still a great visual addition to this modern Minecraft structure.
4) Realistic modern house
This build may appear with a specific set of texture packs and shaders in its presentation, but it looks beautiful even in vanilla Minecraft. The home features a multi-story design complete with outdoor porches and walkways in a secluded forest setting. You need a lot amount of glass to meet the requirements of this building, as the open-looking design relies on the transparent quality of glass pane blocks.
In addition to textures and shaders, using popular Minecraft furniture mods is ideal for making this building really stand out.
5) Modern Italian town house
A towering black and white modern home construction, this set of blueprints requires a lot of time due to the landscaping around the house compared to the house itself. The hedges and posts in the garden are beautiful, complete with gravel paths leading to the house itself, as well as the adjoining patio. Mods can be used to incorporate fruits into the garden such as fresh grapes, a unique aspect of Italian architecture that dates back to ancient times.
However, if a Minecraft player doesn’t necessarily want to use mods to make this build shine, it’s fine to substitute the fruits of the garden for other choices, such as glowing berries or rosebushes.
