The Second Annual Vancouver Modern Home Tour Opens Doors on Saturday, September 20th

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 11, 2014) - Modern Home Tours LLC is returning to Vancouver, British Columbia, as part their 2014 Fall Tour. During the 2014 Vancouver Modern Home Tour, attendees will have the opportunity to explore five to seven modern homes in the Vancouver area that exemplify modern architecture and living. Tourgoers can get the inside scoop from homeowners on what it's like to live in a modern home, and talk to the architects to find out where they got their inspiration.

Seven of the area's most amazing modern homes have been confirmed for the 2014 Vancouver Modern Home Tour. Participating architects and designers include: architect Oliver Lang (of Lang Wilson Practical in Architecture) and Vanglo Sustainable Construction Ltd.; architect David Thom (of IBI Group Inc.) and interior designer Juli Hodgson (of Hodgson Design Associates); Frits de Vries Architect Ltd.; Sheridan MacRae (of METRIC Architecture) and designer Kelly Deck (Kelly Deck Design); Peter Hildebrand (of Iredale Group Architecture); and Anja Henche of ah-design.

For a second year in a row, the Vancouver Modern Home Tour will be a featured event within Western Living Magazine's Design Week. This year's Design Week runs from September 18th to the 28th and kicks off with Western Living's annual Designers of the Year Awards. The week features art shows, talks, tours, fundraisers, live auctions, gala dinners and ends with the Interior Design Show West.

The Chip and Shannon Wilson School of Design (part of Kwantlen Polytechnic University) has been named as the 2014 Vancouver Modern Home Tour local beneficiary. Fashion marketing students will help staff the event, in return for a small donation to the school's program, the opportunity to use the tour as a fundraising vehicle, and contributing community service hours, a cornerstone of the applied learning that Kwantlen students are known for.

Participating homes in the 2014 Vancouver Modern Home Tour will open their doors for viewing from 11AM - 5PM on Saturday, September 20th. All are invited to attend. Tickets for the tour are $30 in advance online; $40 on the day of the tour. Kids under 12 are FREE when accompanying their parents.
