AIA Austin Homes Tour: 12 architects, 24 images

There is a perfectly legitimate reason why the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Austin Home Tour 2016 runs a full two days: It is nearly impossible to fully appreciate the depth and design execution perfection of the dozen residential dwellings on the tour around metropolitan Austin, Texas, in a single day. This year, event attendees are able to pace their tour travels over October 15 and 16. So, yes, if you hurry, you can still visit a number of the properties today before the tour officially closes.

Certainly, as the adage goes, a picture can be worth a thousand words, and the 24 photos here expertly composed by photographer Leonid Furmansky tell a compelling architectural story. But stepping inside these homes—each uniquely designed by the 12 respective architectural firms specifically for the purposeful needs of their clients—presents a stage for an experiential opportunity like no other. As an architect once relayed to me as we were viewing one his projects, “. . . An architect-designed home should immediately feel like a place you have never been before.” And you can be instantly teleported to one of those places by simply making a stop on the tour.

The dozen firms showcasing homes during the event this year include:

Baldridge Architects | Faye & Walker Architecture | Furman + Keil Architects | Lake Flato Architects | McKinney York Architects | Mell Lawrence Architects | Nick Deaver Architect | Rauser Design | Rick & Cindy Black Architects | Tom Hurt Architecture | Tornbjerg Design | Webber + Studio, Architects

So, enjoy the blend of interior and exterior images we have curated for you below, as a window into what these homes can offer. And we hope to see you somewhere along the tour route.
