House Tours

Our next house tour will take place on Sunday, 4 May 2014, from 1 to 5 pm.

See complete details.

   

The annual spring house tour is BAHA’s major fundraising event, as well as a vehicle to disseminate information on important Bay Area architects and Berkeley neighborhoods.

Our exhaustively researched house tour guidebooks provide a permanent record, not only of the featured houses, but of architecture in their neighborhoods.

Tour guidebooks are available for purchase at the BAHA office, 2318 Durant Avenue, every Thursday between 2:00 and 6:00 pm. Please note that guidebooks for tours marked OP are out of print.

See photos of our recent house tours in the Photo Gallery.
