Weekend Open House Tour: Thoroughly Modern Cambridge

View as Map

When it comes to the housing stock in Cambridge, it's a mixed bag. Prices range from modest $400K homes to multi-million-dollar condos and Victorians. It's easy to be overwhelmed by the different styles, but we narrowed down a few to get you started.

This week's open house tour focuses on modernist-inspired architecture, which is no stranger to Cambridge (Check out #2 on our Summer Pocket Guide). Homes include a newly constructed "green" home, an artist live/work space, and a micro-unit designed in 1965 by renowned modernist architect Hugh Stubbins Jr.. All thoughtfully designed to inspire and function.
