Gainesville Modern is excited to announce the official launch of our first ever film. The 47 minute film “A Tour From Home” puts a virtual spin on our popular Mid-Century Modern home tours. This film highlights 7 architect designed Mid-Century Modern homes and will include many homes not seen before.

The film was launched November 18th, 2021. “A Tour from Home” features homes designed by Architects Harry Merritt, Dan Branch, Arthur Campbell, Tom Russell & Howard Melton, Bob Tucker and Don Alford. Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor Mike Hastings, Realtor with Arista Realty and Production Sponsors Jerome H. Davis Interiors and Dr. Anita Spring. 

“The film has allowed us to continue bringing great architecture to our members and fans in these difficult times. Each home includes an interview about the architect, the unique features of the home and what it is like to live in these architectural gems” said Gainesville Modern President Jenn Garrett. 

The video is now free and is available to be watched here. Gainesville Modern “A Tour From Home.”
