It’s Time to Kick Off Dwell Home Tours—First Stop, San Diego

By Dwell @dwell
Dolphin Place by Hector Magnus in La Jolla

The first home we’d like to share is Dolphin Place, a 1,200-square-foot residence in La Jolla that was renovated by local architect Hector Magnus. Originally a midcentury fisherman’s cottage, this open and airy house has been in the homeowner’s family since the 1940s.

At each of these locales, visitors will be given the chance to explore a handful of homes that are all remarkable and officially Dwell-approved. They’ll be able to experience first-hand the excellence that went into creating these homes and the real life personalities of both the homeowners and the designers. Each city’s tour will start off with a Meet the Architects night, where interested visitors will be given the opportunity to meet and mingle with the architects who have designed the featured homes. The evenings will be filled with interesting conversation, light bites, and refreshing cocktails. Doesn’t it all sound like an opportunity that can’t be missed? We think so, and hope you decide to join us in one of our destination cities.  

For a rare sneak peek at what we have planned for San Diego, take a look at these images of the five homes that will be included, all of which we sincerely admire as both works of fine architecture and as real life homes. 

If you find yourself in San Diego this April, the first Meet the Architects night will take place on the evening of April 15th. You can register here. To sign up for a tour in a city near you, follow this link.
