The Modern Architecture + Design Society is returning to southern California to host the 5th annual San Diego Modern Home Tour on Saturday, October 14, 2017. During the self-guided event, tour-goers will get the inside scoop from homeowners on what it’s like to live in a cutting-edge modern home, and learn directly from the on-site architects, builders and designers how they find inspiration for these fascinating residences. The event gives San Diegans a rare opportunity to see the inside of ‘that amazing house on the block…’
Most homes on this year’s tour are new builds or recent renovations, but tour organizers note there is something special in store: “The true architecture fanatics and mid-century lovers are in for a real treat this year: we just added a classic southern California beach home, designed by Sim Bruce Richards. The Del Mar home was designed and built around 1980 and is one of the last ones Richards completed before passing in 1983. It is a true masterpiece by an iconic American architect. It’s also currently for sale.”
The San Diego Modern Home Tour is a featured event in this year’s Archtoberfest celebration, presented by the San Diego Architectural Foundation. The SDAF has been named the tour’s local non-profit beneficiary for the fourth year in a row.
