If you’re interested in seeing a mix of modern and traditional elements in a home, a purely modern home inside and out or a Tudor-style home with a modern interior, you’ll have your chance in October. Nine homes in the District, Maryland and Northern Virginia will be open to the public on the 2018 DC-Metro Modern Home Tour organized by the Modern Architecture + Design Society (MA+DS) and the Contemporary Listings Group at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
Among the nine properties that will be open to the public Oct. 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. is architect Mark McInturff’s complex of four dilapidated 1920s cottages that he converted into his own modern home and studio in Bethesda. Two homes designed by renowned modern architect Travis Price are on the tour — one a 1980s-era design in Chevy Chase and the other a 2006 design in the District, which includes a modern addition to a Tudor cottage.
In Arlington, the tour includes a new modern custom home designed and built by Sagatov Design + Build and a 1949 stone-and-stucco home with a modern interior design by Kathy McIntire of Kmac Corp. Design. Other properties include a remodeled Craftsman-style bungalow in Takoma Park by Braitman Design Studio; a modern addition to a Bethesda bungalow by Gardner Architects; a modern home in McLean by Angus MacDonald; and a Tudor-style brick home with a modern addition by Paola One Design.
During the self-guided tour, participants can visit each home and ask questions of architects, designers and builders who will be present at the properties.
The tour, which costs $40 in advance and $50 on the tour day, benefits the American Institute of Architects Student chapter at the University of Maryland at College Park.
