Home Tours

AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design present the 14th San Francisco Living: Home Tours, a one-day open house event, featuring a select number of modern residences. The popular event showcases a variety of architectural styles, neighborhoods and residences, including single-family homes and contemporary renovations, and is the first tour series in the Bay Area to promote residential design from the architect’s point of view.

Throughout the day, 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 San Francisco living. This year, the Home Tours program will feature 5 projects on Saturday in San Francisco. We hope to see you on the tour!

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. In 2010, AIASF expanded the series to Marin County (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015 tours). In 2014, AIASF with AIARE expanded the series to Sonoma County.


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.
