This Saturday, January 26th, is the third annual Houston Modern Home Tour. This is the Texas-based first stop on the national 2013 spring tour. Houstonians have the chance once more explore the inside and outside of their city’s finest examples of modern architecture and interior design.

The city-wide, self-guided driving tour will feature six to ten architecturally progressive and contemporary homes in and around Houston that exemplify modern living. The architects and neighborhoods featured in the 2013 Houston Modern Home Tour include:

  • A sophisticated, minimalist 3-level home by Strasser Ragni Architects in the heart of the Neartown-Montrose neighborhood
  • A “midcentury restoration” to a 1955 ranch house by Janusz Design in the southern end of University Place
  • A beautiful new modern home by Hollenbeck Architects in Bellaire
  • A 1926 historic bungalow in historic Houston Heights, completely updated and modernized by Brett Zamore Design
  • A brand new, elegant and Modern Tuscan-style home in Piney Point by Bellaire Builders
  • A second home, nicknamed the “Tree House,” by Strasser Ragni Architects located in the Montrose district
  • Another newly-built modern home with grand interior spaces that envelope a central pool courtyard, designed by Allen Bianchi Architects in Boulevard Oaks

The Lawndale Art Center has been named as the non-profit partner for the 2013 Houston Modern Home Tour. They will receive a portion of the tour’s proceeds.

Participating homes on the 2013 Houston Modern Home Tour will open their doors to tour-goers from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Saturday, January 26. Advance tickets are discounted online. Kids under 12 are free!
