The tornado has impacted this year’s AIA Dallas Tour of Homes. Curated by architects, the tour will feature two Preston Hollow homes: the Sexton home by Eckxstudio for Modern Architecture and the Caladium Drive home by NIMMO. The tour is Nov. 2-3, 10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. However, the tornado damaged the home where the Premiere Party is scheduled on Oct. 30. The party, which features hors d’oeuvres, open bar and tour architects, will now take place at 5505 Montrose Drive in Greenway Park. The house was designed by its Perkin+Will architect-owner.
Addresses for the homes are available on hometourdallas.com. Tickets can be purchased for $30. They may also be purchased during the tour at any of the homes for $35 weekend of and $10 for individual homes. VIP tickets were originally available for an additional $20. The organization is unable to offer the VIP ticket upgrade to see the Premiere Party home on tour as was originally planned. If you bought the VIP ticket before the tornado, you will still be able to visit any of the seven homes on tour, and you will have the option of being refunded the $20 VIP ticket price difference, or donating the $20 to recovery efforts.
The 2019 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes is presented by Porcelanosa. Proceeds from the tour benefit AIA Dallas,the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects, which aims to advance architecture and design.
