First come, first served.
Designers from INTERSTICE Architects will lead limited architectural tours of 1333 Minna Workshop during the Home Tours weekend.
INTERSTICE Architects designed 1333 Minna Workshop as a minimalist “open-ended” event space for an avid maker-client and his creative partners to experiment. Located in the central Mission this simple plywood tube serves as a hybrid space for office and workshop all organized around a single three level vertical service core of reclaimed myrtle wood. The unencumbered volume integrates circulation, aperture, glazing and high performance systems to prioritize flexibility and future change.

About the Tours
AIA San Francisco's Home Tours series is the first of its kind in the Bay Area to promote a wide variety of architectural styles, neighborhoods, and residences—all from the architect's point of view.
Started in San Francisco in 2003, the annual program provides design enthusiasts and the general public with an inside look into the world of distinctive residences in the region. Tour participants have the opportunity to see some of the area's latest residential projects from the inside out, meet design teams, explore housing trends, and discover design solutions that inspire unique Bay Area living. AIASF expanded the series to Marin County in 2010.
Tours promote awareness and understanding of excellent design, as well as demonstrate the positive impact of design as it contributes to our economy, environment and community identity. Pre-tour lectures and opportunities to interact with representatives from the design team on the day of the tour provide valuable insight into the design process.
