Our sponsor again today is the 2016 Annual Home Tour from the Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, which takes place this weekend. Thanks for sponsoring Swamplot!
Each year, the AIA Houston Home Tour attracts about 3,000 people eager to view the finest in new (5 years old or younger) residences by local architects. This year’s tour takes place from noon to 6 pm this Saturday and Sunday, October 29th and 30th, and features 9 area homes selected by an AIA jury. The 2-day, self-guided tour is open to the public.
The homes on this year’s tour are:
- Pavilion Haus, 1914 Ebony Ln., by studioMET
- Marmo-Vaikhman House, 705 Merrill St., by McIntyre+Robinowitz Architects
- West Eleventh Place Residence, 5 W. 11th Pl., by Dillon Kyle Architects

Tickets for the tour are $25 each — or $20 for bike riders — and can be purchased in advance online or at the AIA Houston office (Downtown, at 315 Capitol St. Suite 120). They let you into all 9 houses, on both days of the tour. You can also purchase tickets at any of the participating houses during tour hours. Single-house tickets are also available, for $10 each, but only during tour hours at the homes themselves.
For more information, check out the tour website, where you’ll also find more photos of each of the featured homes. This press release provides a lot more detail about each property. There’s a map to the homes here. To purchase tickets online, click here.
