The American Institute of Architects, East Bay, will hold its inaugural Home Tours of the East Bay this summer. Eight architect-designed houses a variety of architectural styles will be open in Berkeley, Oakland, Lafayette, and Orinda.
Sustainability, open floor plans, connection of indoors to outdoors, abundant light, and a mixture of modern and traditional materials are key features of the tour houses. Ranging in size from 768 sf to 8,500 sf, these houses demonstrate that excellence in design is not limited by size or budget.
The architect of each house will be on site to answer questions. The tour is self-guided.
Tickets may be purchased online; at the AIA office, 1405 Clay Street, in downtown Oakland (after 24 July); or on the day of the tour at either of these will-call stations: Table 24 restaurant, 2 Theatre Square, Orinda, or 2237 10th Street, Berkeley.
