2015 AIA East Bay Home Tour
It’s almost time for the 5th annual AIA East Bay Home Tour. Scheduled for Saturday, August 8, the self-guided/self-driven tour will visit spectacular homes in Oakland, Berkeley, and Piedmont in a celebration of design and East Bay living.
Two new homes will be featured on the tour, as well as 4 Mid-Century homes that have been renovated to varying degrees. One of the new homes, dubbed “Courtyard Retreat” because the house wraps around a central courtyard is set in the Berkeley Hills. The second newly constructed home on the tour is a boldly modern home in the Oakland Hills.
The most extensive remodels on the tour include a home that was built in 1937 and has been completely revamped into a home suitable for a 21st Century family; a Ratcliff-designed home in the Berkeley Hills that brings contemporary design into a Mid-Century home; and a home in Piedmont that has been transformed from a traditional 1948 home into a modern masterpiece.
Rounding out the half-dozen homes on the tour is an Oakland Hills home designed by Joseph Esherick featuring a newly remodeled kitchen that preserves the original’s minimalistic design while bringing it into the 21st Century.
This tour offers a great opportunity to take a peek into a few of the East Bay’s beautiful homes – and perhaps gain some inspiration for your own. Tickets for this exciting East Bay Home Tour are available through AIA East Bay.
