Saturday, September 20th 1pm – 5pm
On Saturday September 20th, 2014, VHF will tour 5 examples of Mid-Century Modernism built between 1950 and 1970. There will be a limited number of seats on the buses, or choose to explore on your own with the self-guided option (a vehicle is recommended).
In 2014 we head out to five Vancouver Mid-Century Modern homes including a 1947 Ned Pratt designed home that was originally featured on VHF’s inaugural Mid-Century Modern Bus Tour, back in 2006. Pratt was instrumental in the early stages of the Modernist movement in Vancouver and the Saba Residence is a prime example of the Mid-Century integration of outdoor space and indoor space. The Saba Residence is also one of the first in BC to utilize post and beam construction, a revolutionary construction method at the time. Come see what has changed to the interior of this home since its first showing with VHF 8 years ago.
