SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2019 | 10 AM - 4 PM



Co-presented by AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design, the annual San Francisco Living: Home Tours program  is an open house event featuring five modern residences. As the first tour program in the Bay Area to promote residential design from the architect’s point of view, this highly-acclaimed event showcases a variety of architectural styles, neighborhoods and residences, including single-family homes, multi-family complexes, affordable housing and contemporary renovations. Tour participants see some of the latest residential projects from the inside out, meet design teams, explore housing trends, and discover innovative design solutions that inspire unique modern living. 

San Francisco Living: Home Tours is supported by AIA San Francisco’s Housing Committee
which aspires to engage and educate members and the community through discussion, events, and informal sharing of expertise.
