2013 San Francisco Living: Home Tours
Thank you for joining AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design at our annual San Francisco Living: Home Tours. We hope you enjoyed the weekend of inspiring residential architecture and discovered some design solutions for your home! As we begin to plan for 2014, we are interested in learning about your experience on the tour– please take this brief survey and let us know about your experience.
Presented by AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design, San Francisco and Marin Living: Home Tours is the first tour series 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. The annual program provides design enthusiasts and the general public with an inside look into the world of distinctive residences in Marin and San Francisco.
Projects are showcased via an open house format. Tours are self-guided and homes are open from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm each day.
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.

Built in the 1800’s as Mayor Phelan’s carriage house, Stable reflects the twin passions of founders Thomas Brian Lackey and Malcolm Davis – food and shelter. The old carriage space is now Stable café and Mission Creek Kitchen and the old hayloft is home to Malcolm Davis Architecture. After extensive renovation Stable is also an incubator for local businesses and a meeting house for the diverse Stable community.
Participants can pick up day-of tickets at the headquarters. Tickets purchased on or before September 6 will be mailed. Tickets purchased after this date will need to be picked up at the AIASF office starting Monday September 23 or on the day of the event at Home Tours headquarters.
