AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design present San Francisco Living: Home Tours


Tomorrow, the AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design will host San Francisco Living: Home Tours, an open house event featuring five homes designed by leading Bay Area architects, in conjunction with the 2019 Architecture and the City annual event.

This in-depth tour showcases a variety of residential design from the architect’s point including single-family homes, multi-family complexes, and contemporary renovations.

“Architecture + the City provides a unique opportunity to engage and learn more about the impact of architecture and design in our everyday lives. We encourage curious minds to experience design and its evolving role in the future of the built environment,” said Stacy Williams, Interim Executive Director, AIASF and Center for Architecture + Design.

This year’s tour will feature the following homes:

Architect: Rodgers Architecture With a desire to update to their older traditional home into a residence that would accommodate 21st century urban living, this gut remodel included adding space horizontally and vertically and working with a sloping site.

Twin Peaks
Architect: Winder Gibson Architects
This home is nestled at the foot of the hill on a unique detached triangular lot in Twin Peaks. While keeping most of the original 1940’s structure intact and adding one additional level with wraparound terraces and a roof garden to capture the panoramic views, the house juxtaposes refined architectural details with natural elements to create a harmonious flow between indoor and outdoor, far and near views, dark and light, hard and soft materials.

Pinales House
Architect: S^A | Schwartz and Architecture
Unlike many Bay Area “dream homes”, the Pinales House is more indicative of a scale at which strategic design choices are key to discovering the unrealized potential of the home and site. This 1908 Glen Park home had been compromised by years of awkward remodels. (Photo credit: Bruce Damonte Photography)
