AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design present the annual San Francisco Living: Home Tours, an open house event, featuring five outstanding modern homes. This popular program showcases a variety of architectural styles, neighborhoods and residences -- including single-family homes and contemporary renovations. This is the first Bay Area tour series to promote residential design from the architect’s point of view.


Note that due to the hilly nature of the terrain, the showcased homes are not ADA accessible. Moderate walking is required to get to the homes.

NO children under 12 years of age are permitted on the tours. Only infants that can be held in a carrier that is strapped onto an adult will be allowed inside of the homes.

NO photography is allowed anywhere on the tours in an effort to protect our partners’ privacy.

We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes and clean foot apparel. You may be required to remove your shoes prior to entering the houses.

Do NOT open anything that is closed or make use of any of the furniture.

Do NOT bring food or drinks into the homes.

Do NOT smoke in any of the homes or at any time while on the premises.

Restrooms in the homes are NOT available for public use.

Parking is not available at the home. Public transportation, walking, or taking a taxi is highly encouraged. Parking will be limited in the neighborhoods at the locations. Please respect all neighborhoods and do NOT park in or block driveways. Read all street parking signs.

Carpooling or public transportation is encouraged. We also recommend bringing along a map as a supplement to this program and routing your tour route in advance.

Tickets are transferable but are non-refundable.

Tour goes on rain or shine.

AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design commissioned celebrated local artist Jennifer Clifford to create artwork embodying the Festival's theme and spirit of imagination and discovery across the design industries.

About the Artist

Jennifer Clifford was an interior designer for 10 years before deciding to pursue a full time art career. She has always been drawn to texture, the juxtaposition of pattern and bold color. In college, she developed a passion for collage art. Today, her work is a reflection of that passion, melded with the vibrant textiles and wallpapers she loved and used while practicing interior design. You can find Jenny and her work at art fairs and events around the Bay Area and her wholesale line of art prints are sold in stores throughout San Francisco including Terminals 2 and 3 at the San Francisco International Airport. In collaboration with Rickshaw Bagworks, Jennifer has a complete collection of her art featured on their locally-made tote bags that can be found online (www.jenniferclifford.net) and in various shops throughout the city.

Artist's Statement

The general concept behind the image created for the 14th Architecture + the City festival poster, is an attempt to reveal the many hidden layers of San Francisco. San Francisco is filled with many people and walks of life who each have their own perspective of the city, while other parts of the city remain unseen from the casual observer - the secret city. The upward movement of the image created follows a path, "the secret stairs", which serves as the gateway to connect the hidden details of San Francisco (found in the festival program), to the present urban community, to empower a more conscious and sustainable future.
