Not sure why you'd consider that door to be "modern". It's a standard flat slab door. You can buy one at any place that sells doors. Order your door without any brickmold and put on whatever trim you want.

Hmm. Well it could become a modern door if it automatically opens when the owner is in the front door or automatically lock, or probably a door that has voice recognition even with it's simple look.

Any door vendor will have something that matches what you're looking for. Ask for a solid/flat slab exterior door (Hollow core doors are typically used for interior doors, solid core doors for entrance doors...).
The weight/heft of the door is going to depend what the door is made from. A soild pine door will weigh less than a soild oak door, for example. Your vendor's catalogs should list the weights for each door they offer so you can get a general idea for comparing different materials.

thanks for the ideas. How about solid core fiberglass 90 minute fire door. Would this get me what I wanted?
Sorry if this is a stupid question I've never bought a front door before.

"How about solid core fiberglass 90 minute fire door. Would this get me what I wanted?"
It might but you're going to search high and low for that door. I don't know of anyone that makes a solid core fiberglass door (most "soild" fiberglass doors are foam filled.) and I''ve never seen a fiberglass door with a fire rating greater than 20 minutes.
Not sure why you're hung up on the fire rating. Unless this doorway happens to be between a house and garage it isn't needed. You're best bet would be a simple solid wood slab.

Heres another example of what im looking for ive actually seen this in person its a common door for modern prefab
Houses i think its some kind of laminate its definitely not the type of thing ive seen off the shelf at home depot im going to contact the builder and see what they say

JimR you were right. I found out from the builder. It's a solid core door with birch veneer. I think the veneer is what gives it that modern "ikea" look that I was going for.
