Rice Design Alliance's annual spring architecture tour arrives with an interesting theme, "Additionally."
From 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, architecture and design enthusiasts can view eight Houston residences that have been creatively enhanced with recent strategic and substantial additions designed by outstanding local architecture firms.
The self-guided tour is open to all, including RDA members and their guests at $25 per person and senior citizens and students at $15 each. Tickets may be purchased online at the alliance's website and secured at Will Call, located at 3503 Audubon Place, one of the houses on tour.
Tickets and memberships are also available for purchase during the tour at five of the open houses: 5219 S. Braeswood Blvd, 5503 Sturbridge Drive, 823 Peddie St., 707 Sabine St. and Will Call, 3503 Audubon Place.
Let's take a look at the "Additionally" spotlighted houses.
House No. 2
5503 Sturbridge Drive
1960, Marshall S. MacDougal
2008, Dillon Kyle Architecture
Dillon Kyle gave this mid-century Tanglewood ranch-style house subtle remodel treatments. Now, the residence stands with a lightened color palette to emphasize openness and create continuity between the inside and outside.
