Now that our museum houses are gradually opening again as the lockdown relaxes, Iconic Houses is excited to welcome you to our country specials  – designed to help you make the most of a daytrip or week(end) away, probably in your own country or not too far from home. Despite all the wonderful virtual tours, there is of course nothing like experiencing iconic houses in real life! Seeing, hearing, smelling and feeling their unique ambience - after three months of missing them, we can't wait to enjoy the real thing again!

Note:  The new conditions vary greatly according to region and local risk. This means that spontaneous visits to house museums are a thing of the past. We advise you check carefully before you visit - in many cases visiting is only possible with an online reservation.
Always wanted to sleep in a museum? Now's your chance! Iconic Houses' members include museum homes that you can rent for a holiday. Imagine having one all to yourself, and getting to know it at your own pace. These houses have wonderful stories to tell. During a stay in one, you'll experience it almost exactly as the original residents did. Most were designed as weekend or holiday homes, meaning that architects didn’t need to be so practical and could focus on fun.

Our new initiative Icons at Risk strives to preserve the world’s most endangered architecturally important modern houses. We have so far listed 30 houses. Latest additions are the Kohlberg House on Cape Cod (saved by the Cape Cod Modern House Trust) and the Forrest Baker House in Vancouver (which the West Coast Modern League is trying to save). We have also added a list of other international and national Watch Lists.

Want to know more about our member icons? Here’s our round-up of the best books you can buy about the houses and house museums that make up our unique network of icons you can visit. They are listed in alphabetical order by names. If no monograph on the house is available, we’ve found the next best thing – a monograph about the architect that features a chapter on the house museum that you can find on our map.

Villa Henny is an icon of 20th-century Dutch architecture, and 100 years after it was built, the concrete design is still as solid as a rock. When the current owners saw the ‘For Sale’ sign in the garden in 1979, they were sold, and so was the house! After raising their children here and spending 40 happy years in this special place, they are putting the house up for sale - so a new owner will get the chance to live in this architectural gem!
