Participating homes in the 7th annual Silicon Valley Modern Home Tour will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 5PM on Saturday, June 8th. Ages 10 & Up.

Some tour-goers search for an architect or home builder to work with on their next project; others hope to find a little inspiration; whatever the reasons may be, all tour-goers come to see a curated selection of Silicon Valley homes that embody the California’s unique modern architecture and design aesthetic.

On Saturday, June 8th, the Modern Architecture + Design Society (MA+DS) returns to Silicon Valley for the 2019 Modern Home Tour. The annual event celebrates regional architects, designers, and home builders, and gives them the opportunity to showcase their work to the community in which they work. In turn, the self-guided tour gives the community a rare chance to ask questions and engage the minds behind the designs, as they explore some of Silicon Valley’s modern homes up close, inside and out.

“The Silicon Valley Modern Home Tour is one of our long-running California tours, and it’s one we always look forward to,” says MA+DS founder and president, James Leasure. “The Valley is one of the birthplaces of the mid-century modern movement. We are so lucky each year to be able to showcase modern homes from today’s architects, as well as a couple homes that exhibit the iconic mid-century style.”

Participating homes for the 7th annual Silicon Valley Modern Home Tour include:

  • A modern renovation by Ogawa Fisher Architects and Starburst Construction Company of a 1955 home in Mountain View
  • A sustainable modern home built in 2012, designed by Tobin Dougherty Architects, located in Portola Valley
  • A modern home in the Los Altos Hills, designed by Camargo and Associates and built by Mason-Hammer Builders
  • A brand-new modern home in San Jose, designed by ANAV Design
  • A modern home in Palo Alto designed by Acadia Architecture and built in 2015

Participating homes in the 7th annual Silicon Valley Modern Home Tour will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 5PM on Saturday, June 8th. Ages 10 & Up are invited to attend. Tickets to see all homes are $40 in advance online; $50 on the day of the tour. Details on participants can be found on the 2019 Silicon Valley Modern Home Tour event page.
