2013 San Francisco Living: Home Tours

American Institute of Architect's San Francisco Chapter and the Center for Architecture + Design are hosting their annual "San Francisco Living: Home Tours." The tours close the Architecture and the City Festival that is running September 1-30. AIA SF describes the tours as a program that "provides design enthusiasts and the general public with an inside look into the world of distinctive residences. 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."

Ten homes are featured this year including the "Butterfly House" by John Maniscalco Architecture, Shawback Interior Design, and Ethan Allen Construction.  The remodeled house is perched on a hill in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Concreteworks is featured throughout this bright and airy house with kitchen countertops, stair treads to the rooftop patio, bathroom counters, white shower wall panels with integrated shelves and niches, matching floor pavers and custom shower pans.

The 2013 San Francisco Living: Home Tours are (this weekend!) Saturday and Sunday, September 28 & 29 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
