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.

This home was built to be “natural and neutral” canvas for the home owners personal art collection. The second and third floors are cantilevered to create a sense of a tree house. The large stone wall continues from the front, through the home, and all the way to the back. A large shed roof allows for both protection from the sun and rain.
The main level consists of the living, dining room, kitchen, and office.
Looking forward to this year’s home tour on June 6th & 7th! (Athens May 30th!)
