The Modern Atlanta Home Tour is a two day self-guided tour of homes in Atlanta. The architecture tour is mostly private residences, but occasionally a few commercial buildings are featured. It is usually held on a weekend in mid June – MA was founded in 2007. The tour is the finale of “Design is Human Week” – a week of speakers and events focusing on design, sustainability, and innovation.

Terrace with a city view:
Looking back at the building. The little glass bump out is for the tub in the master bathroom. I like how the deck for the table creates a distinct “outdoor room”. Also, the combination of slate chips & slate-color stone walkway is nice.
Overall, this was technically a modern space… but to me, it just felt like what I assume a condo should be like. I think of condos as being new, sleek, and modern – I suppose I was underwhelmed because it was expected. Mostly, this home was about decorating and furnishings – which, is in contrast to most of the other free-standing homes on the tour. Also in contrast to most of the homes on the tour, this home used dark tones and felt more like a nice bachelor pad.
