Tucson, Arizona (PRWEB) January 16, 2014

Modern Home Tours is making its first trip to Arizona this Sunday, January 19th. The premier Tucson Modern Home Tour will feature and showcase five unique Tucson-area homes designed by local architects.

The Tucson Modern Home Tour is a self-guided driving tour of local architecture that gives local designers a day in the spotlight. At each stop, tour-goers get the rare opportunity to explore the inside and out of four to six of their area’s most amazing private residences. For the architects whose work is on display, it is a live citywide gallery of their cutting-edge designs; for homeowners, it is a unique chance to share their lovingly crafted modern living spaces; and for ticket-holders, it’s a day of neighborhood exploration and visual awe.

During the Tucson Modern Home Tour, tour-goers will see a unique collection of private homes in and around the Tucson area, including:

  •     A contemporary work of art by FORS Architecture + Interiors in Oro Valley that features a fireplace built into a wall of windows and an impressive 2nd story 360° view.
  •     A fantastic modern take on Hacienda design by Kevin Howard in Marana that features amazing landscape design (complete with custom pool, spa and water features) by Solana Outdoor Living.
  •     The Tucson Mountain Lava Retreat, a gorgeous modern home on the eastern side of the Tucson Mountains, designed by Paul Weiner of DesignBuild Collaborative, which features panoramic landscape views and giant, crushed volcanic cinder (scoria) walls.
  •     The Tucson Mountain Rammed Earth Compound, a second home by Paul Weiner of DesignBuild Collaborative, which is a stunning display of ancient, timeless and true materials (clay) being shaped and designed into a modern structure.
  •     A second Marana home by Kevin Howard that features views of The Gallery Golf Club course and a custom water table that adds the tranquility of water but with a clean Zen approach (by Solana Outdoor Living).

The Tucson Modern Home Tour is the kick-off for the group’s 2014 Winter/Spring National Tour, which covers 11 cities from January to June. As a special promotion for the first time in Tucson, tickets have been discounted from their usual price.

Participating homes in the first Tucson Modern Home Tour will open their doors for viewing on Sunday, January 19th, from 11AM – 5PM. Tickets to attend and see every home on the tour are $25 in advance online; they are available for $30 on the day of the tour at all home locations. The tour is self-guided; all are invited to attend. Kids under 12 can accompany their parents for FREE!
