Design Envy

Seattle Modern Home Tour 2014 At a Glance

The annual architecture tour returns with six lust-worthy new specimens.

By Angela Cabotaje March 18, 2014

Ready for a major case of house envy? Seattle Modern Home Tour is back this Saturday, March 22 with six new architectural gems and a whole lot of design candy. Properties this year range from a minimal single-family home in Madison Park and a slick penthouse condo overlooking Interbay to a midcentury-modern remodel in West Seattle and a contemporary Built Green residence in Issaquah.

Can't make it this weekend? You could always pony up a down payment for one of the homes on tour (one is listed for $2.8 million and another for a cool $1.5 million)—or just rubberneck vicariously through us.
