Some tour goers are looking for inspiration for their next project; others hope to find an architect or contractor to work with; Whatever the reason, all tour goers come to see a curated selection of Seattle homes that embody the unique modern architecture and design aesthetic of the Pacific Northwest.
On Saturday, April 28th, the Modern Architecture + Design Society (MA + DS) returns to Seattle for the Modern Home Tour 2018. The annual event gives regional architects, designers and builders the opportunity to present their work to the community in which they work. In return, the self-guided tour gives the community a chance to engage the minds behind the designs and ask questions as they explore some of Seattle’s modern homes up close.
“The Seattle Modern Home Tour is traditionally the first tour in our annual Pacific Northwest series and we always look forward to it,” said James Leasure, founder and president of MA + DS. “Seattle’s modern movement in residential architecture and design is inspiring and amazing. Every year we are fortunate enough to showcase some truly incredible designs from some of the region’s leading architects and builders. “
The 2018 Seattle Modern Home Tour attendees and homes include:
- A complete renovation of a 1912 Fremont cottage by CAST Architecture and Model Remodel
- A new modern home in Clyde Hill designed by Jim Dwyer and built by BDR Fine Homes
- A truly green modern house near Fauntleroy Park by PRDG Architektur + Design
- A brand new freestanding unit (DADU) designed by Robert Hutchison Architecture is located right next to the architect’s home studio (also open to the tour) in Fremont
- Au Courant House is a Signature Series home designed by Medici Architects and built by Noble Ridge Construction in Redmond
- A modern, low carbon home in Ballard designed by ALCOVA Architecture
The Seattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) continues its longstanding partnership and returns as a local not-for-profit beneficiary of the tour. The SAF supports the employees at the event in return for a donation and the opportunity to use the tour as a fundraising campaign. Additional income will be added to develop a scholarship fund to help future architects and designers continue their education.
