When Modern Home Tours returns to Ontario on Saturday, June 7, Torontonians will have the chance to catch a glimpse inside some of their city’s most amazing modern residences. The self-guided Toronto Modern Home Tour will feature up to eight astounding homes all designed by local architects; the tour acts as a live, city-wide gallery of local residential architecture, and gives the designers a unique opportunity to show their impressive work to the public.
Six homes have been accepted and confirmed for the tour; the final line-up will consist of up to eight architecturally progressive and contemporary homes that exemplify modern living in and around the Toronto area. Confirmed homes (to date) include:
In addition to the homes featured on the tour, attendees can visit the tour’s designated ‘rest stop’: the STACKLAB showroom, a Toronto-based multidisciplinary design and fabrication studio, led by Jeff Forrest. Complimentary refreshments will be served and tourgoers can browse some astounding examples of modern furniture.
Art City in St. James Town has joined the tour as the local non-profit partner. They will help staff the event and use the tour as a fundraising vehicle.
Participating homes will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 5PM, Saturday, June 7th. All homes are located in the greater Toronto area, and all participating architecture firms are local businesses. Tickets are $30 USD in advance; $40 USD on the day of the tour, available at designated locations. Everyone is invited; kids under 12 are free.
