Silicon Valley Home Tours, a Tour by Architects

 

 

May 5, 2018

 

AIA Silicon Valley is proud to present the 4th Annual Silicon Valley Home Tours, a tour by Architects on Saturday, May 5, 2018.

 

Open to the public, this self-guided tour is a celebration of residential homes designed by architects. The dwellings featured are cutting edge modern in design, imaginative in the uses and blends of materials, and sensitive to both surrounding neighbors and the environment. Through teamwork, collaboration, and a shared vision, the licensed architects bring their homeowners’ dreams to reality.

 

The four homes are located from Saratoga to Los Altos Hills. Included on the tour are a bold minimalist home in a steep and challenging landscape; a modern, warm, family-friendly interpretation of an East Coast Colonial abode; a stunning home that floats in the canopy of a dense oak grove in the foothills; and another residential design that preserves and enhances an existing oak woodland and seasonal creek through a rich palette of color and natural textures. These homes range in size from 2,600 to 7,000 SF.

2018 AIA SILICON VALLEY HOME TOURS FEATURED HOMES

 

 

NO. 1475

LOS ALTOS

A modern, warm, family-friendly remodel of an existing three-story traditional East Coast Colonial home was taken down to the studs to allow for a clean slate of materials, for design, and constructability reasons.

PAM & PAUL'S HOUSE

CUPERTINO

This house floats in the canopy of a dense oak grove in the foothills just west of Silicon Valley, offering a completely glass-walled house, protected from the direct rays of the sun, yet filled with dappled sunlight.


SLOT HOUSE

LOS ALTOS HILLS

The Slot House design brings a bold minimalism into the rolling landscape of the Los Altos Hills. A sunken entry courtyard transitions visitors into the home, and serves as an introduction to the unfolding of the house’s levels down the gradual slope of the site.

SARATOGA CREEK HOUSE

SARATOGA

Set in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains and shaded by mature heritage oaks with dense canopies, this home features a high level of design in almost every interior detail and features the skills of many of the Bay Area’s finest craftspeople.


We hope by the end of the tour, you are inspired for your own home’s potential.  To learn more, please contact the AIA Silicon Valley at 408-298-0611 ext 101 or email director@aiasiliconvalley.org.
