We don’t know about you, but we like to poke around in other people’s houses. Luckily, November 3-4, we can embrace our inner voyeur and head to the sixth annual AIA Dallas Tour of Homes, the only citywide tour curated exclusively by architects.
Each house was chosen for its architectural excellence and its ability to express the important role the architect plays in residential design.
The self-guided tour, featuring houses ranging from farmhouse to contemporary, is open to the public from 10 am-5 pm Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $25 in advance for the entire tour, $30 at the door or $10 per house.
Expanses of glass provide ample natural daylight throughout the interior of 4223 Shorecrest Dr., designed by Smitharc Architects. Built with sustainability in mind, the home features geothermal HVAC, 100 percent recyclable zinc metal shingles and locally sourced limestone.
