Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
This Saturday, September 14th, Vancouver residents have the opportunity to explore some of the greatest examples of modern residential architecture and interior design in their own home town, as Modern Home Tours makes its second visit outside of the US for the first-ever Vancouver Modern Home Tour.
The Vancouver Modern Home Tour is a self-guided driving-tour of seven to ten architecturally progressive and contemporary homes in the Vancouver, British Columbia-area that exemplify modern living. Thanks to a handful of generous homeowners, tourgoers will have the chance to explore the inside and out of some incredible modern homes, designed by some of Vancouver’s greatest modern architects.
Seven amazing homes have been accepted for the 2013 Vancouver Modern Home Tour:
Modern Home Tours is also proud to announce a partnership with Aunt Leah’s Place. Partial proceeds of the tour will go to the local non-profit’s programs and mission of providing support for teen mothers and kids in foster care.
Modern Home Tours co-founder, Matt Swinney, explains the group’s decision to venture north: "The Pacific Northwest region of the United States is very rich in modern architecture, and Vancouver sits right there with them as one of the hotspots for modern design. It is, like Toronto, one of the most vibrant and progressive cities in the Americas, and an absolutely perfect match for our tours. We are thrilled to bring the idea of modern architecture exploration to the unique architectural community that has blossomed north of our borders."
The Vancouver Modern Home Tour is the second stop on the group’s 2013 National Fall Tour. Participating homes will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 5PM this Saturday, September 14th, in and around Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Tickets to see every home on the tour are $30 in advance online; available for $40 on the day of the tour at select ‘start’ locations. All are invited to attend. Kids under 12 are free!
