Modern Home Tours, LLC, a premier national home tour organizer, is proud to announce a return trip to New Mexico. The third annual Santa Fe Modern Home Tour will take place on Saturday, October 18th; the tour is one of the final stops on the 2014 Fall Tour, which included visits to Texas, California, Colorado, New Mexico and Canada.
Throughout the day, tour-goers will have the rare opportunity to explore five to seven amazing private residences in northern New Mexico. Attendees will learn from homeowners what it’s like to live in a modern home and find out where the architects got their inspiration - directly from the source. The tour is self-guided and self-driven, allowing guests to explore these modern treasures at their own pace.
Applications for participation in the tour are still being accepted and homes are being confirmed. So far, local firms Interface Architects, Archaeo Architects, and WAMO Studio have been confirmed. The roster of homes will be finalized the week prior to the tour.
Friends of Architecture Santa Fe has been selected as the benefitting non-profit partner for the 2014 Santa Fe Modern Home Tour. They, along with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Santa Fe chapter, will help staff the event in exchange for a donation and opportunity to use the tour as a fundraising vehicle.
AIA Santa Fe and Friends board member, Allan Baer says: “The mission of Friends of Architecture Santa Fe is to enhance and foster the appreciation and awareness of architecture by promoting and supporting a diverse array of programs and activities, and providing opportunities for the public and local design community. The Modern Home Tour is one such opportunity and Friends is delighted to have been selected as a benefitting non-profit partner.
