The 2015 Seattle Modern Home Tour on May 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. is self-guided and goes to a number of neighborhoods.
The Seattle Architecture Foundation is a partner in the program, and will receive a small donation.
Here are the houses:
— The Aurea Residence gives a modern twist to the Magnolia neighborhood. It was designed by architect Chris Pardo and built to maximize the views.
— The Backyard House is a speculative infill development that takes its name from the site: the subdivided backyard of a house in the Atlantic neighborhood. SHED Architecture & Design designed the house with lots of natural light, floor-to-ceiling windows and sustainable materials.
— The 18th Avenue City Homes complex is on a narrow, sloping lot in the Central District. It was designed by Malboeuf Bowie Architecture and has natural light and ventilation, small spaces that “live large,” and indoor/outdoor integration.
— Architect James Chiarelli's residence was built between 1948 and 1950 in Maple Leaf, and is a city landmark. Current owners Craig McNary and Adeline Ee updated the interior while honoring the original design. Allied 8 designed the update.
— Prentiss Architects designed a 2007 remodel of the “tree-house” in Washington Park to create a livable contemporary space that includes bamboo cabinets, a Nana window wall, a ridge skylight and solar-heated water.
— A 1920 Dutch Colonial near Washington Park has modern alterations, including a glass roof and large windows. Eric Cobb designed the renovation.
