Modern Home Tours: Highlighting Modern Architecture and Design

It’s always exciting to bring our vision to new cities and new neighborhoods, and we believe Arizona’s unique desert aesthetic will create the opportunity to show homes unlike anywhere else on our schedule.

Modern Home Tours LLC is making its inaugural visits to Arizona in early 2014. The premier Scottsdale Modern Home Tour will take place on Saturday, January 18th, and the first Tucson Modern Home Tour will open doors the following day, Sunday, January 19th.

Modern Home Tours are self-guided driving tours that give local architects a day in the spotlight. At each stop, tourgoers get the rare opportunity to explore the inside and out of five to eight 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.

The Scottsdale and Tucson Modern Home Tours are the kick-off for the group’s 2014 Winter/Spring National Tour, which covers 19 cities from January to June. Co-founder James Leasure says he is looking forward to starting the year with two first-time tours in a yet un-visited state.

“It’s always exciting to bring our vision to new cities and new neighborhoods, and we believe Arizona’s unique desert aesthetic will create the opportunity to show homes unlike anywhere else on our schedule.”

Participating homes in Scottsdale, Arizona, will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 5PM on Saturday, January 18th; participating homes in Tucson, Arizona, will open their doors for viewing the following day on Sunday, January 19th, from 11AM – 5PM. The Scottsdale Modern Home Tour and Tucson Modern Home Tour are being held as separate events. Tickets to each tour (which grants entrance to every home on that tour) are $30 in advance online; they are available for $40 on the day of the tour at select ‘start’ locations. A special weekend package is being offered to attend both tours at a discounted price. The tours are self-guided; all are invited to attend. Kids under 12 can accompany their parents for free.
