From brand new buildings to sleek renovations, the Seattle Modern Architecture and Design Society offers a glimpse of eight Seattle homes on the final weekend of April.
The self-guided tour covers homes from Columbia City to Phinney Ridge and offers participants the chance to speak to not only architects but also the owners and get a glimpse of everyday life inside the homes.
It’s like opening houses for fun, but improved and without the temptation to buy. (Okay, one of them is for sale. But only one.)
The tour will take place on Saturday, April 29th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but here’s a little insight into the houses. If you’re interested, you can purchase tickets for $ 35 here. (They jump to $ 40 a day.)
