AIA LA Tour: Architects Design For ThemselvesAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Architects use their own homes as design labs, exploring design ideas and making them concrete (sometimes literally) for their own pleasure. The home of architect Michael Rachlin of Rachlin Partners is no exception. 20 years ago, he chose an earthquake-damaged house without much style and a bad kitchen. In the course of two renovations over the intervening decades, Rachlin has reworked it into a gleaming white pavilion that still respects its origins.
Rachlin Partners is one of Southern California’s leading public project firms with a portfolio that encompasses schools and healthcare facilities plus complex programs like the rehabilitation of Los Angeles City Hall.
Tours are at 11:00am and 12:00pm on Sunday, April 19. Admission are by prepaid tickets and registration, available here (click on the tour time link to purchase) priced at $45 for non-AIA members. AIA members tickets are $30.
