The Santa Barbara AIA’s annual ArchitecTours, a celebration of local architecture, will showcase nine homes and businesses including our recently opened Goodland Hotel property.
The theme of this year’s ArchitecTours is ‘Architecture with a Story’. Each of the nine projects features an intriguing personal or construction story that profile many of the design obstacles encountered during the building process. This event draws attention to the extraordinary architectural legacy in Santa Barbara and the value of well-designed architecture to its surrounding community. Equally, ArchitecTours highlights the expertise that AIA architects (and Landscape Architects!) possess including a thorough understanding and expertise in urban design, sustainability, accessibility, structural improvements, building materials, and historic renovation.
The tour will be held on Saturday October 3rd from 10am – 4pm and will culminate with a festive party.
Early Bird Tickets are $65 for general public, $55 for AIA members and seniors, and $25 for students. Please note that early bird tickets are only available until September 13th. This year, five percent of the proceeds earned by the event will be donated to Habitat for Humanity for their next project in Santa Barbara County. Habitat has been a valued client of ours and we are proud to contribute to another opportunity for fundraising for this incredible organization.
This year CJM::LA is a site sponsor at The Goodland Hotel property, which we completed in 2014. This is a great opportunity to see our work in action, and receive a personal tour of the property with representatives of our firm as well as DMHA, our Architect partners for the property. We look forward to seeing you there!
