Coming this November 2nd and 3rd, AIA Austin will be celebrating a number of local architects who have worked on homes all throughout Austin. The owners of each of the eleven featured homes have graciously opened their doors to the public for the weekend so that others may appreciate the genius behind each of these architectural masterpieces.
This year’s homes will feature both new and newly-renovated construction, ranging from traditional to contemporary in their design aesthetic.

Though each of the homes are quite different from one another, they are all exemplary displays of architects making the most of natural light – as each of the featured homes are bright, open, and beautifully lit.
After walking through each of these homes, you will surely be left piecing together elements from each design to create your own Austin dream home; the bright, modern kitchen with ample counter space and crisp, white cabinetry in the Alter Studio home; a dining room with an entire wall of windows, as seen in the home designed by Tim Cuppett Architects; a resort inspired backyard like that of the one thought up by Chas Architects; ceilings with wooden beams, similar to those in the kitchen designed by Shiftlet Group Architects. Every single home featured on this tour is stunning in its own right; but don’t just take our word for it, we highly recommend touring these stunning abodes yourselves.
Tickets for the event may be purchased in advance for $35, or on the day of the event for $40. A map for the self-guided tour may be viewed at the American Institute of Architects website.
Anyone who shares an appreciation for incredibly well-executed architectural details are bound to find themselves inspired by the homes on this year’s AIA home tour.
We’re curious; which of these homes are you most looking forward to touring?
