AIA Dallas Tour of Homes Features Modern Marvels From Local Architects

PV14 1

It seems like every year AIA Dallas puts on its fall home tour, they up the ante of style and substance. This year’s AIA Dallas Tour of Homes, held Saturday and Sunday Nov. 1-2, is no different.

The tour, which is self-guided and open to the public, will feature the outstanding work of AIA Dallas architects. The tour will feature the recently completed shipping container home from Michael Gooden Design, PV14. The home, named for its address on Peavy Road and for the number of shipping containers the home is constructed with, has sweeping views of White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas. The other eight homes, which also include a Howard Meyer renovation, are no slouches, either.

“This year’s tour showcases Dallas’ best residential design by local architects,” said Tour of Homes committee co-chair Jennifer Workman, AIA of Good Fulton & Farrell. “The homes were chosen for their architectural excellence and ability to communicate the important role the architect plays in residential design.”

Homes are located across Dallas in neighborhoods including Forest Hills, Highland Park, Little Forest Hills, Midway Hollow, North Dallas, Old Lake Highlands, and Preston Hollow, and in a variety of architectural styles. This year’s eighth annual AIA Tour of Homes will kick off with a premiere party Oct. 30. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Tickets are $100 for the public and $75 for AIA members, and each includes one tour pass. Premiere Party ticket sales will open in early October at www.hometourdallas.com.

You can buy your tickets for $30 on the day of the tour at any of the tour homes. There will also be an AIA Tour of Homes app on iTunes for addresses of the featured homes!
