HOUSE PROUD

HOUSE PROUD

Dream of a better life for yourself at Saturday’s 5th Annual Modern Home Tour.

We here at PINQ love modern architecture with its clean lines and sleek, Spartan finishes, not to mention that perfect, not-quite-lived-in feel featured on the pages of our favourite magazines.

But with the average price of a Vancouver tear-down higher than a Hollywood estate, we didn’t think we’d get to actually see a contemporary gem outside the centrefold of a house-porn publication.

Luckily, the 5th Annual Vancouver Modern Home Tour is back tomorrow to soothe our aspirational architectural desires.

A self-guided tour of six fabulous local homes from Pacific Spirit Regional Park to downtown Vancouver, up to North Vancouver and out to Montiverdi Estates in West Vancouver, this event offers a remarkable opportunity to get up close and personal with the creative minds behind these most amazing residences — and to sneak a peek at how the other 1% lives.

(Side note: We’re especially partial to the little Fritz de Vries’ designed pied-a-terre on W. 31st St., pictured)

There’s no place like home.

Well, these homes…
