This self-guided, annual home tour showcases an impressive spectrum of residential design from our region’s talented architecture community. Featuring a mixture of new construction and remodels/additions, a range of project sizes, budget scopes, and neighborhoods, the event offers a close-up look at how an architect can transform ordinary living spaces into personalized homes by responding creatively to each client’s unique needs.

The Tour is Virtual This Year!

The Homes by Architects Tour is going virtual this year! Through this virtual experience, you will be able to explore the homes, remodels, and additions at your leisure from the comfort and safety of your home. No shoe covers, long car rides, bathroom stops, and fighting crowds to take in the fine architectural details and innovating solutions our tour homes feature. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get inspired by the best in Minnesota residential architecture! View of a demo of what the virtual tour will look like here.

NOTE: The virtual tour is available to ticket holders until 11:59 PM on Saturday, October 10.
