Denver has such a deep well of modern architecture and style. After the huge success of our first Denver Modern Home Tour in October 2011, we wasted no time in preparing to set up a return visit. We are thrilled to be coming back at the beginning of June.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
On Saturday, June 2, 2012, Modern Home Tours returns to Denver. The self-guided driving tour will feature six to ten architecturally progressive and contemporary homes in the Denver area that exemplify modern living, and address issues from sustainability and green-living to ergonomics and elegant aesthetics.
Ingrid Spencer, former managing editor and current contributing editor for Architectural Record magazine in New York City, is curating and selecting the homes for the 2012 Denver Modern Home Tour. Already confirmed: the work of local architect Michael Knorr of Michael Knorr & Associates, and local designer Samantha Bales of Studio 2B! Discover how homes they, and others, have designed are pushing the boundaries of design by incorporating recycled materials, rainwater collection systems and natural ventilation while maintaining the clean lines, simple shapes and lightness associated with the Modern architecture movement. From floating staircases and dramatic glass entryways to spa-quality baths and professional kitchens, tour goers are guaranteed to be impressed!
“Denver has such a deep well of modern architecture and style,” says Modern Home Tours co-founder Matt Swinney. “After the huge success of our first Denver Modern Home Tour in October 2011, we wasted no time in preparing to set up a return visit. We are thrilled to be coming back at the beginning of June.”
Participating homes will open their doors from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM on June 2, for viewing. The 2012 Denver Modern Home Tour is being presented by Haiku Fans. Tickets are $25 in advance; $30 on the day of the tour, available at designated locations. Partial proceeds of the tour will benefit a local non-profit (to be announced).
