From brand-new construction to sleek renovations, the Seattle Modern Architecture and Design Society will be providing a peek into eight Seattle homes the last weekend in April.
The self-guided tour includes homes from Columbia City to Phinney Ridge, and gives participants a chance to speak with not just architects, but the owners, too—giving a peek into day-to-day life in the homes.
It’s like going to open houses for fun, but enhanced, and without that temptation to buy. (Okay, one of them is for sale. But just one.)
The tour is Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but here’s a sneak peek at the homes. If you’re into it, you can buy tickets here for $35. (They jump to $40 day-of.)
This brand-new, home in Phinney Ridge has floor-to-ceiling windows and a bright, hub-like open central staircase.
This brand-new Leschi home overlooking Lake Washington with decks on every level is still listed for sale by the developers.
This Wallingford home got a modern renovation without looking out-of-scale with other houses on the block.
This Madison Park home, built around a central, courtyard hub, feels connected to the outside environment.
This home on top of Queen Anne Hill fits a lot of space into a smaller lot than some other homes on the tour.
In the Roanoke area, this 100-year-old house got a sleek, modern makeover while still preserving historic details like the original stained glass.
The Residences on Fairview are attached townhouses—each unique, but using the same construction and design elements.
This lofty home in Mount Baker has multiple decks, a grotto, and a large patio area. Interior windows and sliding barn doors keep the inside both connected and open.
