2013 Explore Design Home Tour

Walk into a home, large or small, and you can feel the impact of thoughtful, intentional design. Balance. Functionality. Composition. Beauty. By weaving these elements together with their client's values, architects connect great design to our everyday lives. The Seattle chapter of the American Institute of Architects has carefully selected seven local homes for outstanding architectural response to urban conditions, client needs, and the environment.

AIA Seattle invites you to experience how great design can inspire our everyday lives through the first-ever Explore Design Home Tour on Saturday, September 14. Architects will share their design story as you explore inspired homes throughout Seattle.

The Explore Design Home Tour is a component of the annual Seattle Design Festival, the area's largest interdisciplinary design event, happening September 13-22, 2013. This year's Festival theme - Design in Health - will explore the connection between environmental design and our physical, mental and social well-being.
