The 6th Annual AIA SF Architecture and the City Festival is coming up! The nation's largest architectural festival boasts a schedule filled with tours, bike rides, lectures, and LOTS more! The theme this year is Everday, Design which "
The DELICIOUS Stable Cafe in the Mission (by architect Malcom Davis)...a renovated old stable building turned coffee shop/cafe and office/work space.
I looove the interior of Stable Cafe....it's my idea of perfection: old meets new and LOTS of natural elements and WOOD (hello amazing beams!).
Then there's this AMAZING Victorian renovation in Bernal Heights (by architect Studio Sarah Willmer Architecture)
This Victorian remodel in the Haight (by Mork-Ulnes Design) is fantastic! I am obsessed with the eaves and dormer windows and the exposed brick....siiiiiiiigh!
And then there's the Ames Alley Cottage (by Boor Bridges Architecture), which used to be home to Betty Mae's School of Tap for over 30 years begining in the 1940's!
This year there will also be a tour of one of my favorite local ceramic studios: Heath Ceramics in Sausalito, which is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary.

There are seriously SO MANY amazing tours and lectures and bike rides and even the new series: Dining by Design, where you can sign up to have a "dinner focused on urban architecture" with a meal prepared with all local ingredients by Chef Nicole LoBue. YUM!
