The Modern Architecture + Design Society returns to Vancouver for the 5th annual Modern Home Tour on September 16, 2017. During the self-guided event, tour-goers will get the inside scoop from homeowners on what it’s like to live in a modern home, and learn from the architects, builders and designers, where they found inspiration. This is every BC resident’s chance to see the inside of ‘that amazing house on the block…’

As always, KPU’s Wilson School of Design has been named as the Modern Home Tour local non-profit partner and beneficiary. Fashion marketing students will help staff the event, in return for a donation to the school’s program and the opportunity to use the tour as a fundraising vehicle, while also contributing community service hours, a cornerstone of the applied learning that Kwantlen students are known for.

Six homes have been accepted and confirmed for the 2017 Vancouver Modern Home Tour. Participating architects and designers, and featured neighborhoods include:

(1)    The Edge House in North Vancouver, designed by Kevin Vallely of Vallely Architecture, and built by Meister Construction.

(2)    A spacious laneway house designed by Iredale Architecture and built by Kliewer Brothers Construction near the Kitsilano neighborhood.

(3)    The Pacific Spirit Residence, designed by Frits de Vries Architect Ltd and built by Hart + Tipton Construction includes a full home plus laneway house right off the eastern edge of Pacific Spirit Regional Park.

(4)    A laneway house on the East Side designed and built by Lanefab Design/Build.

(5)    A 1980’s Mid-Century classic home out in Montiverdi Estates (West Vancouver) that was recently renovated and updated by LCI Design.

(6)    A laneway home designed by Shelter Residential Design Ltd and built to accommodate a growing family in North Vancouver; the parents moved into the new modern coach house, while the kids took the original home to raise their new family!
