Home Tours 2013



The AIA East Bay Home Tours, held August 10, 2013, featured six houses ranging from modern to classic and large to small. They demonstrate how collaboration between homeowners and AIA architects yields transformative results in various scales and styles. Whether it is an older home that needs to be renovated with humility and grace or a dramatic site that begs for a heroic modern gesture, architects know how to listen to the past and design for the present. They reinterpret. They respond. They know how to bridge the eras of design from traditional to modern in a thoughtful and enduring way. Click here for information on the 2014 Tours.
