Event Granger Open House

September 19, 2017 - 6:00am to 8:00am

This event has already occurred.

Charles Granger designed his own home in Austin’s Judges Hill neighborhood in two phases. The Perch, a tiny International Style garage apartment, was completed in 1938 after Granger’s return to Austin following a stint working for Richard Neutra in Los Angeles. The larger Granger House followed in 1951, with a masterful design which marks the evolution of the architect’s style. Owners Mark Seeger and Jeff Harper, working with architect Jay Farrell, have been stewards of this architectural treasure for nearly 20 years. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and designated a City of Austin Landmark.

Mid Tex Mod is excited to host two open houses in celebration of Fehr & Granger, Architects - Austin Modernists, an exhibit presented by the Austin History Center (AHC) in conjunction with AIA Austin. This selection of midcentury photographs of the firm’s midcentury works draws from the AHC’s collection and will be on display at the Austin Center for Architecture (801 West 12th Street) from August 15, 2017 to November 15, 2017. Festivities kick off with the exhibit opening on Tuesday, August 15 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. This event by the AHC and AIA Austin is free and open to the public, with refreshments provided. See AIA Austin’s website for details.

Mid Tex Mod will host the following open house at Granger's House and The Perch. This event will feature a brief discussion with the homeowners and their preservation architects. Refreshments provided, and RSVPs to info@midtexmod.org are required.
