Some of the most creative architects, working with their most adventurous clients, are revealing the results on Saturday and Sunday September 17 and 18 during a tour of modern homes in San Francisco that is part of the Architecture and the City Festival. The tour runs 10am to 4pm.
Among the homes in this ninth annual tour is a rebuild of a 1940s Noe Valley row house that is now topped with a cedar- and glass-sided bedroom that is “suspended overhead like a ship in a bottle,” according to the AIA.
Also included is a three-story Dolores Heights home that includes a two-story, sky-lit stairway and bamboo garden, and exterior spiral stairs.
Tour headquarters will be B&B Italia (2211 Alameda Street, San Francisco), which opens at 9am, where visitors can view a home exhibit and learn about working with architects.
