Redefining Residential Architecture

The purpose of the Architect Home Tour is to raise awareness of the role of an architect in the design or redesign of a home. This year’s Home Tour features two newly constructed homes and three homes that include renovations and/or additions.

The three renovated properties showcase exciting transformations, geared toward the owner’s specific needs. Each proves the value of an architect’s vision of what a home can be when combined with the understanding and respect of what a home once was.

The two newly constructed homes serve as examples of dwellings that embody the spirit of their homeowners. The connection between an owner and their space when thoughtfully designed by an architect is unmistakable.

In the homes open for this year’s tour, you will find a diverse range of styles and enhanced functionality. In newly constructed homes, as with renovations, you will discover that an understanding of history and tradition allows an architect to complete a fulfilling design directly suited to the wants and needs of the client. The AFN and AIA Lincoln invite you to tour each of these unique and innovative homes and to discover the possibilities afforded to those seeking an architect-designed home.

Tour will be held regardless of weather conditions.
