Bungalow Style Homes

As the urban character of Salt Lake City changed in the early twentieth century, the bungalow became the dominant type of house. This low-profile house is characterized by its narrow end facing the street and by the variety of roof styles found in the district. Its most common form is the simple frame bungalow, which may feature a low-pitched Prairie School style hipped or Arts and Crafts style gable roof. Brick was the preferred construction material but other materials such as wood shingles and stucco are also seen.

There are twenty-one examples of cross wings and side-passage cottages in the east side historic district, reflecting the asymmetrical floor plans popular at this time. There are also seven two-story Victorian houses and several small rectangular block Victorians with central blocks and projecting bays. The Mattie McKay house is a typical one-story example of this basic hipped-roof central-block-with-projecting-bays type. Fig. 60 is a late nineteenth-century one-and-a-half-story temple-form Victorian house built of adobe plaster.

Colonial Style Homes

Salt Lake City is home to a variety of colonial style homes. These homes were built in the early 1800s. They are symmetrical and simple. Most have two stories. The entrance of the house is usually at the center of the front facade. These homes have small windows.

This type of cottage is often found in historic districts. They were influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. The designer and leader of the movement was Gustav Stickley. His designs favored simplicity and modesty over the frills of traditional Victorians.

These types of homes are found in neighborhoods like Country Club, Upper Yalecrest and Millcreek. They also appear in areas with new construction such as Draper and Sandy. Some of these homes have modernist styling and are called ramblers. Others have maintained the details and color palette of the mid-century period. Some homeowners are upgrading their Colonials by keeping the historic features. This is one way to save money and live in a historical neighborhood.

Traditional Style Homes

Craftsman style homes are inspired by Gustav Stickley’s philosophy of “the beauty of natural materials and what man can create with his hands.” You can find these beautiful bungalow-style brick homes in neighborhoods such as Liberty Wells, Upper Yalecrest, Millcreek and Holladay. Characteristics include inviting covered porches, triangular roofs, overhanging eaves and muted tones. They are comfortable and cozy, yet distinctly American.

One of the most charming traditional homes in Salt Lake City UT is located in Sugar House, a tight-knit historic neighborhood just minutes southeast of downtown. Originally built in the 1800s, this lovely two-story brick cottage features a cross-wing plan with Victorian Eclectic detailing.

Contemporary Style Homes

Modern Salt Lake City home architecture often takes the form of ranch homes with elongated floor plans and open living areas. You can find these single-story houses in newer neighborhoods like Draper, Sandy and Lehi as well as older areas such as Country Club, Upper Yalecrest, Millcreek and Sugarhouse. In addition to contemporary farmhouse styling, you’ll also see homes with a nod to mid-century modern design. These homes tend to have a pared down look without being drab or boring.

This house in the Westshire neighborhood of West Valley City, designed by architect Ron Molen, is one example. It features geometric windows and a glass pyramid skylight that mimics the shape of the Sawtooth Mountain Range. Molen was influenced by Mies van der Rohe and the Bauhaus and is known for his work in commercial buildings, housing, and public works projects including the Helper Civic Auditorium and Library. The house was featured in an episode of HGTV’s Design Star.
